don't drag me down

June 20, 2003 Comments Off on don't drag me down

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

they’ll try to keep you down


ignorance 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?


you’re eighteen wanna be a man

your granddaddy’s in the ku klux klan

taking two steps forward and four steps back


don’t drag me down
