[Verse 1]
Skin head, dead head, everybody gone bad
Situation, aggravation, everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news, everybody dog food
Bang bang, shot dead, everybody's gone mad

[Hook]
All I wanna say is that they don't really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don't really care about us


[Verse 2]
Beat me, hate me, you can never break me
Will me, thrill me, you can never kill me
Jew me, sue me, everybody do me
Kick me, kike me, don't you black or white me

[Hook]

[Bridge 1]
Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate
You're ripping me of my pride, oh, for God's sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy, set me free

[Verse 3]
Skin head, dead head, everybody gone bad
Trepidation, speculation, everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news, everybody dog food
Black male, black mail, throw your brother in jail

[Hook]

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now

I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame
They're throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can't believe this is the land from which I came
You know I do really hate to say it
The government don't wanna see

But if Roosevelt was livin'
He wouldn't let this be, no, no


Skin head, dead head, everybody gone bad
Situation, speculation, everybody litigation
Beat me, bash me, you can never trash me
Hit me, kick me, you can never get me

[Hook]

Some things in life they just don't wanna see
But if Martin Luther was livin', he wouldn't let this be

Skin head, dead head, everybody gone bad
Situation, segregation, everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news, everybody dog food
Kick me, strike me, don't you wrong or right me

[Hook]
