David Rovics: Who will tell the people

 Ich konnte den Songtext im Internet nicht finden, also hab ihc ihn nach Gehör aufgeschrieben:


The CIA is pushing Crack in the ghettos of LA

While food crops in Columbia get sprayed by the DEA

The FBI is reading your email with something called the Carnivore

While the rich are getting richer and the poor are staying poor

The launching nuclear powered ships up into space

One little accident could wipe out half of the human race

They are putting radioactive waste in your silver ware

Or maybe your toaster or perhaps your wheelchair


The Air Force is bombing Iraq every other day

They don’t like the government so the children have to pay

And the ozone hole is growing and the sheep are going blind

While the US spends more on arms than the rest of the world combined

Journalists are getting fired from San Jose to Atlanta

When they write about reality, not a fluff piece for Fanta

A death thread every week and sometimes life is short

When the truth is too dangerous for someone to report



And who will tell the people that free speech is a ruse

The corporations run the country and then they make the news

Is it media or mind control?

Heroic victims or crime?

Who will tell the people that were living in these times?


The cancer rates are skyrocketing though people are smoking less

If you live near a nuke your life is bound to be a mess

Clean water is almost gone all over the earth

And what`s left they wanna privatize and see how much it`s worth

Chevron is gunning down the students of Nigeria

Turning the land in waste while the babys die of diphtheria

And the temperatures are rising, the world`s forests are on fire

Pretty soon Brail will be one giant funeral pyre




One in three adult Americans cannot read or write

And their children go to bed hungry every night

2 Million US citizens are rotting behind bars

And while they`re there they`re building parts for cars

The army is running torture schools to keep the earth under control

And they´re relocating Navajos so they can mine some extra coal

Our taxes pay McDonalds to sell tumors in Shanghai

While a hundred thousand poisoned vets are just about to die.




And the people are resisting wherever you may go

And this is the single biggest fact they don´t want you to know

From New Delhi to New Mexico there are battles going on

And the darkest hour is just before the dawn

In Berkley and New York they`re raiding radio stations

Trying to turn the voice of the people into the voice of the corporations

Will we seize the airwaves wipe the sweat off our brow

Stand and face the beast and shout: “Democracy now”
