    Back
    In the day
    Back of the car
    With no seatbelt
    On to hold you down

    Yelling
    ARE WE THERE?
    As if you really cared

    Back
    In the day
    Bricks were thrown
    Rioting no false alarm

    You were there...
    Without a crop to share

    Back
    In the day
    Our Lord was born
    To save us from what's going on

    Are YOU There?
