Power
Red Hot Chili Peppers Lyrics


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

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?

Power of the 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 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?

Power of the 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 CDs
I've got my Public Enemy
My lily white ass is tickled pink
When I listen to the music 
That makes me think
Not another motherfucking politician
Doing nothing 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?

Power of the 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
Whatever happened to humanity
Whatever happened to humanity

Luka Zuvela

No shit bro, easily the best. Can listen to any of these songs hours on end and still be satisfied. I'm with you is the 2nd best album tho aye

Riley Gene

i think

Dude Riley

@sydneylol glad to hear it man! SA has some killer jams! Turn it again, 21st century, torture me are great! And the song Hey is one of my all time favorites.

sydneylol

@Dude Riley A few days later, and here we are. Been watching shows from the tour to listen to while I work and found myself enjoying the SA songs a lot more than I usually do. Wouldn't quite say it's my favourite album, but I'd definitely put it above the self-titled, Freaky Styley, MM, OHM, Californication, and The Getaway, which says a lot.
