What about Me? - Quicksilver Messenger Service

">

You poisoned my sweet water, you cut down my green trees
The food you fed my children was the cause of their disease
My world is slowly fallin' down and the air's not good to breathe
And those of us who care enough, we have to do something...

Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?

Your newspapers, they just put you on
They never tell you the whole story
They just put your Young ideas down
(I was wonderin') could this be the end of your pride and glory?

Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?

I work in your factory, I study in your schools
I fill your penitentiaries and your military too
And I feel the future trembling as the word is passed around
If you stand up for what you do believe, be prepared to be shot down

Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?

And I feel like a stranger in the land where I was born
And I live like an outlaw and I'm always on the run
And I'm always getting busted and I got to take a stand
I believe the revolution must be mighty close at hand

Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?

I smoke marijuana but I can't get behind your wars
And most of what I do believe is against most of your laws
I'm a fugitive from injustice but I'm goin' to be free
'Cause your rules and regulations, they don't do the thing for me

Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?

And I feel like a stranger in the land where I was born
And I live just like an outlaw and I'm always on the run
And though you may be stronger now, my time will come around
You keep adding to my numbers, and you shoot my people down

Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?
Oh... oh, whatcha gonna do about me?

Forty years later, and we've devolved so horribly since then.
