So you’re one of the real revolutionaries A whole lot on your mind that you feel you must say Are you ready to walk the picket lines today? Or are you one of those that demand equality, while throwing your fist up in the air as you sit there in you’re reclining chair. You can say what you want but it doesn’t mean a thing it's putting that thought into action that carries the swing Screaming and yelling talking about equal rights Yet to scared to fight. By the way what is your cause, what is your desire What topic sets your emotions on fire? Is it Racism? Welfare The way your girl wears her hair. Drugs in school Homeless teens Keeping the rims on your car clean Low test scores in urban school Parents saying they don’t know what to do Now I know pornography gets you upset Or haven’t you decided yet. Is it family violence? Sex crimes Drug dealers walking the streets not doing time Or better yet, your job asked you to pee in a cup After that same drug dealer hooked you up. Is that what you’re mad about? If so sit back in that reclining chair and raise your fist up in the air. So you’re one of the real revolutionaries And you’re going to save the planet. Hmmm.. let me take a long look at you As well as say a little something too. Understand these words, Real Revolutionaries move in silence If you are still confused as to what that statement means I will now try to throw a little more light on the scene To be real means to be real to yourself and real to your people, Your not Malcolm X or Harriet Tubman so don't pretend to be their equal. Revolution means the movement, the turning of something upside down Revolution means going against the crowd Revolutionaries perceive If you can't go through the wall go over or around Silence- when your are under pressure will keep you calm Silence- when there is danger all around will keep you from harm When you think before you talk you are in silence When you fight before you think now that's meaningless violence So you’re one of the real revolutionaries Fighting for a cause Or fighting because Which is it Tell me what is your plan? To feed the people and nourish the land. So tell me are you sitting or standing? Acting or planning Will you walk or run Act now or wait until the morning sun. Will you talk or scream Awaken or continue to dream Will you bark or bite Fight for your own rights, or the rights of the people to be look at as equal So you want to be a revolutionary Then be real to your cause Act in silence and be fresh like the morning dew or the next dead revolutionary could be you.
