Music Is A Call For Change
It is said that music is somewhat like a revolution. If enough people listen to the message behind the music, and decide that changes need to take place, there will most likely be a difference made.
Music asks us these questions:
Who are these songs directed towards?
What message are they portraying?
Should we listen?
Music tells the truth, no matter how harsh it may be. Lyrics help people realize what is happening around them. Music grabs people’s attention, sometimes better than spoken words.
The Gospel train's comin'I hear it just at handI hear the car wheel rumblin'And rollin' thro' the land
Get on board little childrenGet on board little childrenGet on board little childrenThere's room for many more
I hear the train a-comin'She's comin' round the curveShe's loosened all her steam and brakesAnd strainin' ev'ry nerve
The fare is cheap and all can goThe rich and poor are thereNo second class aboard this trainNo difference in the fare
Every man gotta right to decide his own destiny,And in this judgement there is no partiality.So arm in arms, with arms, we'll fight this little struggle,'Cause that's the only way we can overcome our little trouble.Brother, you're right, you're right,You're right, you're right, you're so right!We gon' fight (we gon' fight), we'll have to fight (we gon' fight),We gonna fight (we gon' fight), fight for our rights!Natty Dread it in-a (Zimbabwe);Set it up in (Zimbabwe);Mash it up-a in-a Zimbabwe (Zimbabwe);Africans a-liberate (Zimbabwe), yeah.No more internal power struggle;We come together to overcome the little trouble.Soon we'll find out who is the real revolutionary,'Cause I don't want my people to be contrary.To divide and rule could only tear us apart;In everyman chest, mm - there beats a heart.So soon we'll find out who is the real revolutionaries;And I don't want my people to be tricked by mercenaries.
