[VERSE]
Em7
I've got a soul that cannot sleep
Em7
at night when something just ain't right
Em7
Blood red but without sight
Em7            |-3-2-1-|
exploding egos in the night

Em7
Mix like sticks of dynamite
Em7
red black or white, this is my fight
Em7
Come on courage, let's be heard
Em7                |-3-2-1-|
turn feelings into words

Em7
American equality has always been sour
Em7
an attitude, I would like to devour
Em7
My name is peace, this is my hour
F#7b5
Can I get just a little bit of power


[CHORUS]
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7  G
power of equality
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7  G
Is not yet what it ought to be
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7  G
It fills me up like a hollow tree
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7
power of equality

Em7
Em |-3-2-1-|


[VERSE]
Em7
Right or wrong, my song is strong
Em7
You don't like it, get along
Em7
Say what I want, do what I can
Em7                         |-3-2-1-|
Death to the message of the Ku Klux Klan

Em7
I don't buy supremacy
Em7
Media chief, you menace me
Em7
The people you say 'cause all the crime
Em7                      |-3-2-1-|
Wake up motherfucker and smell the slime

Em7
Blackest anger, whitest fear
Em7
Can you hear me, am I clear
Em7
My name is peace, this is my hour
F#7b5
Can I get just a little bit of power


[CHORUS]
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7  G
power of equality
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7  G
Is not yet what it ought to be
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7  G
It fills me up like a hollow tree
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7
power of equality

[VERSE]
Em7
Well, I've got tapes, I've got CD's
Em7
I've got my Public Enemy
Em7
My Lilly white ass is tickled pink
Em7                             |-3-2-1-|
When I listen to the music that makes me think

Em7
Not another, motherfuckin' politician
Em7
Doin' nothin' but something for his own ambition
Em7
I never touch the sound we make
Em7               |-3-2-1-|
Soul sacred love, vows that we take

Em7
To create straight what is true
Em7
Yo, he's with me and what I do
Em7
My name is peace, this is my hour
F#7b5
Can I get just a little bit of power


[CHORUS]
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7  G
power of equality
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7  G
Is not yet what it ought to be
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7  G
It fills me up like a hollow tree
  Dsus2  Dmaj7sus2  Fmaj7 Fm7  G7
power of equality

Em7
*break*


[VERSE]
Em7
Madder than a motherfucker, lick my finger
Em7
Can't forget 'cause the memory lingers
Em7
Count 'em off quick, little Piccadilly sickness
Em7                  |-3-2-1-|
Take me to the hick, eat my thickness

Em7
I've got a welt from the Bible belt
Em7
Dealing with the hand that I've been dealt
Em7
Sitting in the grip of a killing fist
Em7
Giving up blood just to exist

Em7
Rub me wrong and I get pissed
Em7
No I cannot, get to this
Em7
People in pain, I do not dig it
Em7                 |-3-2-1-|
Change of brain for Mr.Bigot


[Bass]: Em


[OUTRO]
Em7
Little brother do you hear me
                E7sus4
Have a heart oh come get near me
Em7      Em6
Misery is not my friend

But I'll break before I bend
Em7
What I see is insanity
                        E7sus4
What ever happened to humanity
Em7       Em6
What ever happened to humanity
                        |-3-2-1-|
What ever happened to humanity
