BlackOut Poem - Statue of Liberty talking.
Name of this tune:
Goddam

I mean, me so upset
Everybody knows
Goddam
Can't you see?
Can't you feel?
It's all in the air
Somebody gotten me so upset
Goddam
This hasn't been written, yet
On my trail, sitting in jail
Black days
Mercy, on this time I belong
I've even stopped believing
I tell you I know
Go slow
Washing, picking, thinking
What am I doing?
Best stand up with everybody
Goddam
I was kidding try to plot equality
Yes
Wash and clean
and talk like a lady
Stop calling me lies like flies
I trust you more
Go slow
Gradually, more tragedy
See, feel, know, live
Everybody knows

Goddam, that's it!
