Say have you heard the news
Riots, looting and shootings
On the tube
As clouds of smoke
Rise up into the air
Sez it looks like trouble
So you better beware

There's gonna be a confrontation
A civilian uprising
In the united nation
A youth named robinson
Been shot and killed by the police
And now the politicians
Only talk of justice and peace

But I and I
Don't want no talk of peace
We want is action
Justice and equality
Cause every day I and I
Pay the price
It's blood sweat and tears
And you know the price is high

Violence and police brutality
Fill the city
There is too much
Social and economic inequity
The rich man digs his wealth
From the ghettos
While the poor man
Only puts his trust in vanity

That's how it is
And that's where it's at
Seems the only solution
Is a revolution
We got problems to solve
Involving us all
And we have to build
A brighter future

What I and I need
Is love and unity
You got to liberate your mind
Be the most that you can be
We don't need no
Hatred and rejection
The false teachings
Of society

There's gonna be a confrontation
A civilian uprising
In the united nation
The neighborhood is burning
And the world keeps on turning
Say you can watch it
On T.V.
Can you believe it oh wow

Say have you heard the news
Riots, looting and shootings
On the tube
As clouds of smoke
Rise up into the air
Sez it looks like trouble
So you better beware

A confrontation
In the united nation

A confrontation
In the united nation
