DJ Shadow – In Flux lyrics

This is a song about life, death, love, hate, wealth, poverty, racism... Just a few things been runnin' through my head... Listen... We call on you... Listen... Now, we call on you... Be strong... Hear us now... When you speak of overthrowing these conditions I think is what frightens people... The average american, when you simply say the word overthrow, may see this as something very, very bad... I know you're not responsible for his feelings, but, when you say these things, are you threatening someone? ... Right now... (people's power) x 3
... Detroit in '42... New york in '64... Blinding by a hundred watts... The naked, black, white truth... We have to tear down the [(?)] of stupidity and corruption and put up, in it's place, an edifice of truth... Unite in struggle for people's power... Unite... Truth... Unite in struggle for people's power... We are a part of those concerned with gangs... Meanwhile, uptown, the dj a player... Everybody's so concerned about heroin and marijuana and all that, until they forget the most dangerousest [sic] narcotic that exist's, and that's the narcotic that's injected into the minds of infants... It's called social narcotics... So, you know as well as I do that things are changing... Change, you know... Meanwhile, uptown, the dj a player... Revolution... Change, you know... So after you youngsters work to change the system... [(?)] ... Submission [(?)] ... The people's power... My guilt makes me... [(change) x 3
It's only a matter of time] x 4
...(change) x?
... Freedom!... That's all that life is... The record ends and we must begin again...
