Em7
I've got a soul that cannot sleep
at night when something just ain't right
Blood red but without sight
                      Em |-0-3-2-1-|
exploding egos in the night

Mix like sticks of dynamite
red black or white, this is my fight
Come on courage, let's be heard
                   Em |-0-3-2-1-|
turn feelings into words

American equality has always been sour
an attitude, I would like to devour
My name is peace, this is my hour
F#7b5
Can I get just a little bit of power

power of equality
  Dsus2  DM7sus2  FM7   FmMb11  G7
Is not yet what it ought to be
  Dsus2  DM7sus2  FM7   FmMb11  G7
It fills me up like a hollow tree

VERSE
Em7
Right or wrong, my song is strong
You don't like it, get along
Say what I want, do what I can
                             Em |-0-3-2-1-|
Death to the message of the Ku Klux Klan

I don't buy supremacy
Media chief, you menace me
The people you say 'cause all the crime
                         Em |-0-3-2-1-|
Wake up motherf**ker and smell the slime

Blackest anger, whitest fear
Can you hear me, am I clear
My name is peace, this is my hour
F#7b5
Can I get just a little bit of power

VERSE
Em7
Well, I've got tapes, I've got CD's
I've got my Public Enemy
My Lilly white ass is tickled pink
                                Em |-0-3-2-1-|
When I listen to the music that makes me think

Not another, motherf**kin' politician
Doin' nothin' but something for his own ambition
I never touch the sound we make
                   Em |-0-3-2-1-|
Soul sacred love, vows that we take

To create straight what is true
Yo, he's with me and what I do
My name is peace, this is my hour
F#7b5
Can I get just a little bit of power

VERSE
Em7
Madder than a motherf**ker, lick my finger
Can't forget 'cause the memory lingers
Count 'em off quick, little Piccadilly sickness
                       Em |-0-3-2-1-|
Take me to the hick, eat my thickness

I've got a welt from the Bible belt
Dealing with the hand that I've been dealt
Sitting in the grip of a killing fist
                  Em |-0-3-2-1-|
Giving up blood just to exist

Rub me wrong and I get p**sed
No I cannot, get to this
People in pain, I do not dig it
                     Em |-0-3-2-1-|
Change of brain for Mr.Bigot

OUTRO
Em7
Little brother do you hear me
                E7sus4
Have a heart oh come get near me
Em7      Em6
Misery is not my friend

But I'll break before I bend
Em7
What I see is insanity
                        E7sus4
What ever happened to humanity
Em7       Em6
What ever happened to humanity
                      Em |-0-3-2-1-|
What ever happened to humanity
