Pride

Living Colour
Language: English



Well, oh
Yeah, yeah, yeah

When I speak out loud
You say I'm crazy
When I'm feeling proud
You say I'm lazy, oh
I look around and see the true reality

You like my hair
You love my music
Our culture's large
So you abuse it, whoa
Take time to understand
I'm an equal man

History's a lie that they teach you in school
A fraudulent view called the Golden Rule
A peaceful land that was born civilized
Was robbed of its riches, its freedom, its pride

When I'm at work
You say I'm great
You watch and ponder
But can you relate?
Inviting eyes hands drop
When the music stops

Don't ask me why
I play this music
'Cause it's my culture
So naturally, I use it
I state my claim to say
It's here for all to play

History's a lie that they teach you in school
A fraudulent view called the Golden Rule
A peaceful land that was born civilized
Was robbed of its riches, its freedom, its pride

Well, it's time for a change
Concepts rearrange
Now can't you feel my rage?

Well, it's up to you to seek the truth
To know your history
The difference between me and you
Relate to me as me, not what you see on TV, oh

History's a lie that they teach you in school
A fraudulent view called the Golden Rule
A peaceful land that was born civilized
Was robbed of its riches, its freedom, its pride...
