BEN HARPER lyrics : "black rain"

You left them swimming for their lives

Down in New Orleans


Can't afford a gallon of gasoline




With your useless degrees


And your contrary statistics


This government business

Is straight up sadistic





And it's black rain

Oh, I said black rain gonna fall





You don't fight for us

But expect us to die for you


You have no sympathy for us


But still I'd cry for you




Now you may kill the revolutionary


But the revolution you can never bury




And it won't be long


'Til the people fill the streets

for you


One and all




That's a black rain


Yeah, that's a black rain, is gonna fall




Don't you dare speak to us like we work for you


Selling false hope like some new dope we're addicted to


I'm not a desperate man but these are desperate times at hand

This generation is beyond your command





And it won't be long

'Til the people flood the streets


Take you down, one and all




It's black rain


Talking 'bout the black rain, gonna fall

Yeah, it's gonna fall, go-gonna fall


One and all
