      About "The Power Of Equality"

      Lyrics for Red Hot Chili Peppers - "The Power Of Equality"

      I've got a soul that can not 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
      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
      It fills me up like a 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 menance 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
      It fills me up like a hollow tree
      The power of equality

      I've got tapes
      I've got c.d.'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 my hour
      Can I get just a little bit of power

      The power of equality
      Is not yet what it ought to be
      It fills me up like a 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 can not 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
      Whatever happened to humanity
