Aint Dead Yet
Lyrics
I marched to City Hall with the intention
To exercise my right to askin' questions
They go and brand me as a bad troublemaker
But I ain't dead yet

I tried a little instigation
They said I started revolution
Don't want me findin' a solution
But I ain't dead yet, no

Stand up for your rights and see how far you can get
Y'always be a threat when you ain't dead yet

(8 bar inst)

I didn't count on all the snitches
Paid by those elected sons-a-bitches
Guess the Devil's gonna be the one you least suspect
When you ain't dead yet

They took me off without a warnin'
At 4 am a-Monday mornin'
I got arrested on some drummed-up charges
But I ain't dead yet

Stand up for your rights and see how far you can get
Y'always be a threat when you ain't dead yet

(8 bar inst)

They made me do a load'a jailtime
Then they went and put me on the front-line
They even tried to kill me with a chain-gun, mama
But I ain't dead yet

I'm gonna live to get some answers
From those elected shadow-dancers
I know they wanna send me to my maker, mama
But I ain't dead yet, no

(8 bar inst)

You got a right to askin' questions
About their lies and their inventions
And when you take a vote against convention, baby
Then you ain't dead yet

So shout it out across the nation
And start a little agitation
Don't give up, take the fight right to 'em
'Coz you ain't dead yet!
