Revolutionary Words

revolutionary words
ave become entertainment
revolutionaries...babblin out angry words
about
changes we need
de system greed
while they take it for a joke
sniffin on coke
revolutionary words bein digested with
bubble gums
pop corn
ice cream
in tall inter-continental buildins
revolutionary words
ave become entertainment
oppressors talkin about oppressors
oppressin de oppressors
where are the oppressed
revolutionaries
sippin coffee and tea
explainin what its like to be
down town aroun town
dancin to the disco
gettin low
not knowin which way to go
while the salvation army is still leadin
the revolution

revolutionary words
ave become entertainment
revolutionaries...revoltin against change
that takin place in their heads
while
grenada change
ethiopia change
nicaragua change
the dollar change
the revolution is changin
changin namibia
let us shout about that

yes revolutionary words
ave become entertainment
lip stickin
afro not doin
dread lock attack
no turnin back

revolutionaries
ave all gone to the art centers to watch
the sufferin of the people
bein dramatized by the oppresors
in their revolutionary words...
