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
