"This is a song about ignorance and racism and the astounding fact that it still exists. This song is also about the government cover-ups and lies. When I hear the truth about our forefathers, I'm ashamed. They don't mention in school that our forefathers exterminated a whole Native American race. I experience discrimination all the time. I know what it's like be discriminated against - being seated in the back of a restaurant because of my tattoos. Its cruel but people still judge you by the way that you look and I am reminded daily that commercial and mainstream ideals are quite different from my own."
(Intervista a Mike Ness, leader del gruppo)
Children are taught to hate
Parents just couldn't wait
Some are rich and some are poor
Others will just suffer more
Have you ever been ashamed
And felt society try to keep you down, I begin to watch things change
And see them turn around
Turn around
They'll try to keep you down
Turn around [x2]
Don't drag me down

Ignorance is like a gun in hand
Reach out to the promised land
Your history books are full of lies
Media-blitz gonna dry your eyes
Have you ever been afraid
And felt society try to keep you down, I begin to watch things change
And see them turn around

Turn around
They'll try to keep you down
Turn around
Turn around
Don't drag me down

Ignorance is like a gun in hand, reach out to the promised land
Your history books
Are full of lies, media-blitz gonna dry your eyes
You're eighteen
Wanna be a man
Your granddaddy's in
The Ku Klux Klan
Taking two steps foward
And four steps back
Gonna go to the White House
And paint it black

Turn around
Turn around
They'll try to keep you down
Turn around
Turn around
Don't drag me
Down
