Shout Lyrics - Michael Jackson
Review The Song (14)
Ignorance of people purchasing diamonds and necklaces,
And barely able to keep the payments up on their lessons,
And enrolled in a class and don't know who the professor is,
How low people go for the dough and make a mess of things,
Kids are murdering other kids for the fun of it,
Instead of using their mind or their fist, they put a gun in it
Wanna be a part of a clique, don't know who's running it,
Tragedy on top of tragedy you know it's killing me.
So many people in agony, this shouldn't have to be,
Too busy focusing on ourselves and not His Majesty,
There has to be some type of change for this day and age,
We gotta rearrange and flip the page,
Living encaged like animals and cannibals,
Eating each other alive just to survive the nine to five,
Every single day is trouble while we struggle and strive
Peace of mind's so hard to find.
I wanna shout, throw my hands up and shout
What's this madness all about
All this makes me wanna shout
You know it makes me wanna shout,
Throw my hands up and shout
What's this madness all about
All this makes me wanna shout, c'mon now
Problems, complications and accusations
Dividing the nations and races of empty faces
A war is taking place.
No substitution for restitution, the only solution for peace
Is increasing the height of your spirituality.
Masses of minds are shrouded, clouded visions
Deceptions and indecision, no faith or religion, how we're living.
The clock is ticking, the end is coming, there'll be no warning,
But we live to see the dawn.
How can we preach, when all we make this world to be
Is a living hell torturing our minds.
We all must unite, to turn darkness to light,
And the love in our hearts will shine.
We're disconnected from love, we're disrespecting each other
Whatever happened to protecting each other
Poisoned your body and your soul for a minute of pleasure,
But the damage that you've done is gonna last forever.
Babies being born in the world already drug addicted and afflicted,
Family values are contradicted.
Ashes to ashes and dust to dust, the pressure is building and I've had enough.

You'll be forever loved...you are truly a wonderful musical genius and beautiful soul.
The message in this song is powerful and I love how he always had positive and social conscious messages in his songs. For me, music is Michael Jackson.

We recognize Your most Holy Soul. We have understood what the Great Event has happened. This Is It! You're The Light for the world. This is real. Our Prophet, the Teacher and the Savior. Thanks you for all. We will message to people Who You Are, dear Michael Jackson :)

I also love this song, and i can admit that i know every song he has made(released or unreleased) from his 1979 Off the Wall album to the day he died. But i am kind of curious of when this song was actually made. The lyrics are pure genius.

Thumbs high | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/27/10
Absolutely Amazing, brilliant and totally awesome. Michael caters to every genre of music. I love this song, I love his artistry, I love him, he is music personified. I write of him in the present because he lives in another life, not ours and I'm sure he is still enjoying music. That's all he is and if music is life, then Micheal was full of it here on earth.
I cannot keep still when I listen to this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! rap on!

energy boast | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/7/10
it is powerful song and always gives me such a boast of energy when I jog!!! I love this song! for its message, its energy, and also because it is the only one of a kind song with full rap throughout that MJ has sung. My top 5 MJ favs!
The best | Reviewer: Melissa | 1/3/10
I absolutly love this song! It brings out a positive message for the world to try and understand! I think MJ was the best singer in the world! We have established that he was capable of doing anything he put his mind to whether it be pop, rock, r&b, hip hop and soul! Most of all we found out that he was an excellent rapper! The way he did it was amazing on this song! The King Of Pop will never be forgotten! R.I.P Michael Joseph Jackson. Maybe NOW they will leave you alone!
OMG! TOTALLY AWESOME! | Reviewer: Melissa | 1/1/10
The first time I heard this song, I was totally blown away! I can't believe MJ could rap! I have liked MJ since I was like 5 or something and he just gets better and better! He is the greatest entertainer in the world and the title 'king of pop' is a limited name for such an amazing man. I think King of all music or the world maybe would be better! He was remarkably talented and may his soul rest in peace and like his brother Marlon said at his memorial, "Maybe now they will leave you alone Mike"!
Michael Jackson Shout | Reviewer: Hernan Murcia Z | 8/29/09
Michael Jackson Shout
Solo el rey del POP fue capaz de generar POP de verdad. Se denota la ignorancia de las Clases Sociales que apenas eran capaces de subsistir, muchos se abordaban a la compra y a la adquisición de los bienes y gastos mas inalcanzables.
j spirit | Reviewer: j spirit | 12/27/07
truly an inspirational song, if a Special edition version of Invicible would to be released this song should be featured with no exceptions.
Keep up the great work MJ and can't wait for the new album!!!!!!!!!

Amazing | Reviewer: Christa | 5/17/07
I am a big MJ fan and i loved this song, Shout. It was amazing.
Great Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/6/05
Shout is a different style of Michael Jackson song. This is not your normal 'Billie Jean' pop song you would expect, infact its quite the opposite. Shout is a heavy rock/rap style song that is not only very catchy but portrays a positive message. This song was cut from the Invincible album but appears on the Cry single cd. Just goes to show that Michael Jackson is capable of producing, writing and singing any type of music; whether that be pop, soul, rock, r&b, hip hop and yes rap.
