Artist(Band):Bad Brains
(Print the Lyrics)

In the quest for the test to fulfill an achievement
Everybody's only in it for themselves
When the fact of the matter is they just don't care
To extend a helping hand to anyone else
So tell me why, did you have to lie
And try to make me all confused about the U.S.A.
When the fact of the matter is you just don't care
To comprehend or understand a single word I say
I don't want to have I go against I
Oh let me tell you
The same old story, no factual glory
I against I against I against I
And I say I don't like it, and I know I don't want it
I against I against I against I
Almighty watching, almighty watching
I against I against I against I
And I say I don't like it, and I know I don't want it
I against I against I against I
I said who's gonna tell the youth about the drugs
About the drugs, mugs, bugs, and the police thugs
About the rotten stinkin' rackets and the fantasies
Around the nation, around the nations
Oh baby what you gonna do
I tell you the truth is looking straight at you
I got a brass continental with a 300 Z, two color t.v.s,now a video too
I got a rest home in Jamaica for my fantasty, for my family
Around the nation
Around the nations
What you gonna do.

    Way ahead of their time. The song is about a nation ( many nations this way ) with a large culture of poor, a need for material, and no one seems to care. God cares, jah bless.
