Same Thing Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Somewhere between prayer and revolution
Between Jesus and Huey P. Newton
That's where you find Jonny 5 shoot shootin
Water guns at the audience while ya scootin'
Your gluteous max due to the fact that I'm tootin'
On the horn gonna warn you that I'm rootin'
For the other team in the culture wars
So I stab the beast belly while the vulture roars

YO JOE!
Let it blow with convulsive force
Til walls fall off their false supports
Til Jericho's aircraft carriers alter course
And all brave young Americans are called ashore
Cause we've already lost the war they keep wagin
Splattering the streets in battles that keep ragin
Bloodyin each page of the story that we're studying
Each day the same just the names keep changin

[Hook:]
Saying the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans we don't know where we've been
We've been all over the globe on our government's funds
Leavin man woman and child dead bloody and numb
saying the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans we don't know where we've been
We've been overthrowing leaders with legitimate views
Democratically elected but we didn't approve....

[Verse 2]
How many times can the line divide
How many wars to uphold some pride
Fears uncontrolled just swoll the tide
Of blood in the streets while the people die
Ima keep on tryin
Longs as suffering's multiplyin
And why not
Souls get tossed and left out to rot
My backs broad enough to help left your cross
As long as you help with mine
The process of healing will take some time
To see the pain on your face is the same as mine
Not a game or a race but the stake is high
We maintain our mistakes for the sake of sides
As long as it takes I"ll say it one more time
As long as it takes I'll say it one more time
As long as it takes I'll say it one more time

[Hook]

[Verse 3]
We need money for healthcare and public welfare
Free mumia and Leonard peltier
Human needs not corporate greed
Drop the debt and legalize weed
We say yes to grassroots organization
No to neoliberal globalization
Bring the troops back to the USA
And shut down guantanamo Bay
The same things over again
My throat's so sore from shoutin no war for the soldiers again
Lookin for cloud cover when the explosions begin
Lookin the crowd over wonder if you where we've been
We've been all over the globe Iran to Nicaragua
Guatamala Angola grenada
Dominican republic Haiti chile
It don't stop and it won't stop unless we keep say

[Hook]

Who let'em overthrow Jacobo Arbenz
Who let'em overthrow Mohammad Mosaddeq
Who let'em assassinate Salvador Allende
I didn't let them but they did it anyway
Who let'em overthrow Kwame Nkrumah
Who let'em overthrow Aristide
Who let'em assassinate Oscar Romero
I didn't let'em but they did indeed!

Don't let them assassinate Hugo Chavez
Don't let them assassinate Evo Morales
Bring back Martin, Malcolm, Medgar,
Hampton, Goodman, Schwerner, Chaney
