The Power Of Equality Lyrics - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Review The Song (4)



I've got a soul
That cannot sleep
At night when something
Just ain't right
Blood red
But without sight
Exploding egos
In the night
Mix like sticks
Of dynamite
Red black or white
This is my fight
Come on courage
Let's be heard
Turn feelings
Into words
sponsored links
American equality
Has always been sour
An attitude
I would like to devour
My name is peace
This is my hour
Can I get
Just a little bit of power

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be (ought to be)
It fills me up like a hollow tree (hollow tree)
The power of equality

Right or wrong
My song is strong
You don't like it
Get along
Say what I want
Do what I can
Death to the message
Of the Ku Klux Klan
I don't buy supremacy
Media chief
You menace me
The people you say
'Cause all the crime
Wake up motherfucker
And smell the slime
Blackest anger
Whitest fear
Can you hear me
Am I clear
My name is peace
This is my hour
Can I get
Just a little bit of power

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be (ought to be)
It fills me up like a hollow tree (hollow tree)
The power of equality

I've got tapes
I've got CD's
I've got my public enemy
My lilly white ass
Is tickled pink
When I listen to the music
That makes me think
Not another
Motherfuckin' politician
Doin' nothin' but something
For his own ambition
Never touch
The sound we make
Soul sacred love
Vows that we take
To create straight
What is true
Yo he's with me
And what I do
My name is peace
This is my hour
Can I get
Just a little bit of power

The power of equality
Is not yet what it ought to be (ought to be)
It fills me up like a hollow tree (hollow tree)
The power of equality

Madder than a motherfucker
Lick my finger
Can't forget
'Cause the memory lingers
Count 'em off quick
Little piccadilly sickness
Take me to the hick
Eat my thickness
I've got a welt
From the bible belt
Dealing with the hand
That I've been dealt
Sitting in the grip
Of a killing fist
Giving up blood
Just to exist
Rub me wrong
And I get pissed
No I cannot
Get to this
People in pain
I do not dig it
Change of brain
For Mr Bigot

Little brother do you hear me
Have a heart oh come get near me
Misery is not my friend
But I'll break before I bend
What I see is insanity
What ever happened to humanity
What ever happened to humanity
What ever happened to humanity

Just a kick-ass song with alot of meaning, the Slane version is definitely the best! You gotta listen to it on Youtube you'll be blown away! Only thing I can't understand is why it has like only 30,000 views...



Poo Wee Bum BOOB | Reviewer: robzo bousge | 4/6/08

In matter of speaking I think this is a great song, and hopfully others do to, the way the lyrics are put together and sung in a form of rap really completes it. I love the way the singer captures some of the headlines of racists groups such as the “Ku Klux Klan” and mocks them by saying I don’t buy supremacy. Another example of racial discrimination is where the singer mentions “My Name Is Peace”, I’m guessing he wants all people to be like him in a form of peace and togetherness. In the last lines of the song he mentions “Whatever happened to humanity” 3 times; he’s referring to the place we lay in today with the world’s views of racial discrimination and how far we’ve come form being a white world of perfect people. and where he catpures the moment of "i like to fuck a dog up the ass hard"



Why RHCP rule | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/4/07

This is why RHCP are by far the best band that has ever set foot on the earth. What a start to an amazing album ... cant describe how good they are. No other band comes close or ever will to these 4 legends of music ... if you havent listened to everyone of there songs you are missing out big time. Get their CDs and you won't regret it!!
