Same Thing Lyrics - Flobots

Review The Song (0)



Somewhere between prayer and revolution
Between Jesus and Huey P. Newton
That's where you find Jonny 5 shoot shootin'
Water guns at the audience while ya scootin'
Your gluteous max due to the fact that he's tootin'
On the horn gonna warn you that I'm rootin'
For the other team in the culture wars
So I stab the beast belly as the vulture snores

YO JOE!
Let it blow with convulsive force
Til walls fall off their false supports
Til Jericho's aircraft carriers alter course
And all brave young Americans are called ashore
Cause we've already lost the war they keep wagin
Splattering the streets in battles that keep ragin
Bloodyin each page in the story that we're studying
sponsored links
Each day the same just the names keep changin

Saying the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans we don't know where we've been
We've been all over the globe on our government funds
Leavin man woman and child dead bloody and numb

Saying the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans we don't know where we've been
We've been overthrowing leaders with legitimate views
Democratically elected but we didn't approve....

How many times can the line divide
How many wars to uphold your pride
These fears uncontrolled just swoll the tide
Of blood in the streets while the people die
Ima keep on tryin
Longs as suffering is multiplyin
And why not
These souls getting tossed and left out to rot
My backs broad enough to help left your cross
As long as you help with mine
The process of healing will take some time
To see the pain in your face is the same as mine
It's not a game or a race but the stakes is high
We maintain our mistakes for the sake of sides
As long as it takes I"ll say it one more time
As long as it takes I'll say it one more time
As long as it takes I'll say it one more time

Saying the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans we don't know where we've been
We've been all over the globe on our government funds
Leavin man woman and child dead bloody and numb

Saying the same things over again
Repeatin the same slogans we don't know where we've been
We've been overthrowing leaders with legitimate views
Democratically elected but we didn't approve....

Same thing
(U.S. is not us)
Same thing
(And us is not we)
Same thing
(And we are not satisfied)

Same thing
(And we're tired of the same thing)
Same thing
(And we're ready to make change)
Same thing
(Are we ready to make change?)

We want money for healthcare and public welfare
Free Mumia and Leonard Peltier
Human needs not corporate greed
Drop the debt and legalize weed
We say yes to grassroots organization
No to neoliberal globalization
Bring the troops back to the USA
And shut down Guantanamo Bay

Who let'em overthrow Jacobo Arbenz
Who let'em overthrow Mohammad Mosaddeq
Who let'em assassinate Salvador Allende
I didn't let 'em but they did it anyway

Who let'em overthrow Kwame Nkrumah
Who let'em overthrow Aristide
Who let'em assassinate Oscar Romero
I didn't let'em but they did indeed!

But don't let them assassinate Hugo Chavez
Don't let them assassinate Evo Morales
And bring back Martin, Malcolm, Medgar,
Hampton, Schwerner, Goodman, Chaney
