Grateful Dead – Revolution lyrics

You say you want a revolution, well you know, we all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution, well you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be alright, alright, alright.
You say you got a real solution, well you know, we'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution, well you know, we are doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell you brother is you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be alright, alright, alright.
You say you'll change the constitution, well you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution, well you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be alright, alright, alright
