BLUE SCHOLARS lyrics : "50K Deep"

November 30th, 1999
No sunshine


The body rock stopped, probably got caught by the cops
Nearby, somebody got shot
But parties don't stop and the parties don't care

It's a stick-up, it's why we got our hands in the air

Still demanding a share, refrigerators bare

'Cause they wanna see trade get free and not fair
But we are not blind, we are not there
We don't got time left to spare to not care


On the last day of November, swellin' in ranks
Went to chant down the mighty IMF and World Bank

A gathering of people in peaceful $$#embly
Onward to Westlake to disrupt the entry


Walk along steady, riot squad ready
To protect every last dignitary's $$#
But this started when they herded us like cattle in a fence

Protesters gettin' restless without an exit

They threatened to arrest us, we pushed back and then

A hail of rubber bullets hit teens and old men
I admit, had to split when the first gas canisters hit
Felt it burn in my eyes, nose, and lips


They tried to blame it on the anarchists, garbage
I was there, I'll tell you right now the pigs started it

But they distort it in the news
Talkin' bout stompin' down Niketown wearing their shoes


But the body rock stopped, probably got caught by the cops
Nearby, somebody got shot
But the parties don't stop and the parties don't care

It's a stick-up, it's why we got our hands in the air

50, 000 deep, and it sound like thunder when our feet pound streets

50, 000 deep, and it sound like thunder when our feet pound streets
50, 000 deep, and it sound like thunder when our feet pound streets
50, 000 deep, 50, 000 deep


Yeah, now, the body rock stopped, probably got caught by the cops
Nearby, somebody got shot

But parties don't stop in the south
So take your shoes off when you come into my house


I had to duck out 'cause I knew I stuck out in the crowd
After many years growin' up brown in this town
Now this is what democracy looks like

Not what you all had in mind for tonight

Mr. Mayor, shell-shocked for 5 days straight

Press conference, lookin' constipated and pale
Tossed a homie in jail, wasn't even protesting
Wrong place, wrong time, learned a quick lesson


But this is not a question what we did to deserve this
Rich kids went and got arrested on purpose

But was it worth it? My first inclination
Globalization is the root of the pain


Made the reason that they left and the reason that we came
Catch my breath, blood pulsates my brain
And they called it a riot?

Huh, I call it an uprising

And they call this a riot?

But nah, I call it a uprising
And they call this a riot? Nah man, $#[email protected] that
I'm a call it a uprising


50, 000 deep, and it sound like thunder when our feet pound streets, yo
50, 000 deep, and it sound like thunder when our feet pound streets, come on y'all

50, 000 deep, and it sound like thunder when our feet pound streets, yeah
50, 000 deep, and it sound like thunder when our feet pound streets
