ALIENATION

when your head can't stop from pounding
and your hands can't stop from shaking
and you've been feeling like you've been
waiting so long you're about to lose your patience
that's the dance, called ALIENATION ...

when the clouds are raining acid
and all through our creation
it's broken glass and broken hearts
and poison radiation
you do the dance, called ALIENATION ...

when you open up the BIBLE
and you can't find REVELATIONS
and even in JERUSALEM
you feel no inspiration that's the dance, called ALIENATION ...

when everybody needs one,
but none can afford to take a vacation
and all the best doctors
are reserved for the wealthiest patients
you do the dance, called ALIENATION ...

when the first world bank
enslaves all the third world nations
and oppressed people all over the world
pray for alleviation
that's called the dance, of ALIENATION ...

when the statue of LIBERTY
loves immigrant patriation
except for MEXICANS, JAMAICANS,
PUERTO RICANS, OR HAITIANS, That's the DANCE, called ALIENATION ...

But when it's still ONE LOVE
With a positive vibration
Even in times so tough,
downpressive, and frustrating,
You do the dance, called ALIENATION
