Para Ouvir: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbwAy2tmNKI

Para Ler:
I saw those faces on the screen:
many black men, on the road in Africa
and this had something to do with me! said so before
the earth was soaked and so was I,
many black men, on the road in Africa
They had no food,
just to be thankful to be alive.   said so before

Continuar a Ler:
And the rain poured down for months,
one man wrote “In God We Trust” onto the Back of a truck,
“In God We Trust” onto the Back of a truck,

And we in our country,
a cold white country,
getting bored with almost everything
we are the reason, of their twisted seasons
yeah, we are responsible!

that the rain poured down for months,
one man wrote “In God We Trust” onto the Back of a truck,
“In God We Trust” onto the Back of a truck,

Oh, I grew up without mother’s love,
she had no love,
though she told me she would have,
and it took me 28 years to open up my mouth,
appreciate pride without hate.

I grew up and all the time
she stopped my mouth with everything
that we had too less, we stole away
from them there in the south
on The Streets of Africa

And the rain poured down for months,
one man wrote “In God We Trust” onto the Back of a truck,
“In God We Trust” onto the Back of a truck,
