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

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

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

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

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 rapin' me of my pride
Oh, for God's sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy...
Set me free

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
trepidation, speculation
Everybody allegation
In the suite, on the news
Everybody dog food
black man, black mail
Throw your brother in jail

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

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

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

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, Kike me
Don't you wrong or right me

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

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

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

8. I see w here you are saying it's anti-semitic - but read it again...
it is IMHO more about 'it doesn't matter what you call me' and yes, I see the word Kike is used twice and Jew me is used as well. But so is skinhead=deadhead etc.
It's not anti-semitic. The individual words can be used as such by those with hate on their minds tho.
Cheers
Sandy

9. Exactly. It's about social justice and discrimination against Jews, blacks, anyone
MJ was very concerned with these issues and suffered from them himself. It's not anti-semitic.

It IS anti-hate. I think JS has misinterpreted it.

4. "video started efforts that transformed the area into a model for social development"
Edited on Thu Sep-17-09 08:27 AM by Triana
After Jackson's death, the mayor of the city announced plans to erect a statue of Jackson as his video started efforts that transformed the area into "a model for social development"." source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Favela


What have YOU done today to

CHANGE THE WORLD?

6. WOW.
I didn't know about this. Amazing!

I think maybe the world (or at least the US part of it) is too ignorant to know what it lost when he went. (see previous post from JS as an example).

It is the opinion of the administrators that more often than not, music videos posted in this forum are only tangentially related to current events. Therefore we reserve the right to remove any music video that does not directly reference the news of the day.
