They Don’t Care About Us
MJ_TII_COVER_5x5

Skin head, dead head

Everybody gone bad

Situation, aggravation

Everybody allegation

In the suite, on the news

Everybody dog food

Bang bang, shot dead

Everybody’s gone mad

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

Beat me, hate me

You can never break me

Will me, thrill me

You can never kill me

Jew me, sue me

Everybody do me

Kick me, kike me

Don’t you black or white me

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life

I have a wife and two children who love me

I am the victim of police brutality, now

I’m tired of bein’ the victim of hate

You’re rapin’ me off my pride

Oh, for God’s sake

I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy…

Set me free

Skin head, dead head

Everybody gone bad

Trepidation, speculation

Everybody allegation

In the suite, on the news

Everybody dog food

Black male, black mail

Throw your brother in jail

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights

Am I invisible because you ignore me?

Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now

I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame

They’re throwing me in a class with a bad name

I can’t believe this is the land from which I came

You know I really do hate to say it

The government don’t wanna see

But if Roosevelt was livin’

He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head

Everybody gone bad

Situation, speculation

Everybody litigation

Beat me, bash me

You can never trash me

Hit me, kick me

You can never get me

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

Some things in life they just don’t wanna see

But if Martin Luther was livin’

He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skin head, dead head

Everybody gone bad

Situation, segregation

Everybody allegation

In the suite, on the news

Everybody dog food

Kick me, strike me

Don’t you wrong or right me

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about

All I wanna say is that

they don’t really care about

All I wanna say is that

They don’t really care about us
