Same Old Same Old

The Suicide King
 
same old same old.mp3
Back in the 16th century
The king said who to worship and when to fight
And if he wanted what was not supposed to be
Well he’d change your god till he was justifiedNow there’s no king today just bills to pay and a head of state who tells us what is right
Ain’t that that same old same old shit I’d thought we’d left behind?

Back in the days of cotton fields
A man could own a man and rape his wife
Shoot the child then say he tried to steal
Then still go to church thinking he was dignified

Now they can’t own a man they just own the land and legislate the right to want a child
Ain’t that that same old same old shit I’d thought we’d left behind?

Remember Martin Luther King?
Or Rosa Parks? She sat down with the whites
Just black folk fighting for equality
So they changed the laws and burnt crosses in the night

Now being blacks okay just don’t be gay cuz gay’s about as niggard as you can find
Ain’t that that same old same old shit I’d thought we’d left behind?
Seems like that same old same old shit I’d thought we’d left behind.
