Rebelution - Wake Up Call

It's a shame when somebody shows
Diamonds and pearls to those you don't
This goes out to the wealthy homes
That under the moonlight there's a road

To a place for the struggling
Where people treat you like a human being
Free of racism and other things
Free from money and the imagery

Why oh why has it come to be?
People look up to celebrities
They do nothing for you and me
They should be giving it up to the community

And this ain't just domestic man
This is a worldwide problem and
Still people kill for the oil ya, Why you ask?
Well 'cause there's demand

But stay on top says the businessman
And let the world be left to strand
Hey next month I'll make twice the grand
Things they are going just as planned

And he'll spend most of it on what he sees
Maybe buy something he may never need

See now this is the mentality
Wake up call this is reality
You see now this is the mentality
Wake up call this is reality

Yesterday I saw a man explain
Why he bought his seventh car to date
How does it feel to live the life you like
With millions of us left without a ride?

And yet we look up to the stars and dream
What's it's like to live among elite
I see the future in a rut
With the poorest of the people in the mud

Well here's a message Mr. Business man
The more you make the more the gap expands
The more you give the more the love you land
The more you take the more we suffer man

But he'll spend most of it on what he sees
Maybe buy something he may never need

See now this is the mentality
Wake up call this is reality
You see now this is the mentality
Wake up call this is reality
