We Are The People

If you're feelin' shut down

May my thoughts be with you

If you're a Black man bein' beat down and shoved all around

May my thoughts be with you

If your world's gettin' a little too tough

You know our thoughts are with you

Hey, I know that it's crazy out there

And my thoughts are with you


We are the people

And we live forever

We are the people

And our future's written on the wind

On the wind

If you are one of the homeless

May our thoughts be with you

If you are scared and alone

You know our thoughts are with you

If you are one of the fortunate ones

We all know it's lonely up there

We understand that nobody's got it made

So our thoughts are with you


You see yourself as a leader

May my thoughts be with you

If you try to divide and conquer

We'll rise up against you

We know only the strong will survive

But the meek will inherit

So if you've got a coat of arms, oh friend

I suggest we wear it



Empty Hands

(John Mellencamp/George Green)

In the shadows of the smokestacks

Through the black snow that lay on the land

Walked home one winter morning

With my life's savings in my hand

Maryanne, she's fixin' up some breakfast

Got the lights on, on the Christmas tree

Sittin' there lookin' up at an angel

With something dyin' inside of me

Grew up with great expectations

Heard the promise and I knew the plan

They say people get what they deserve

But Lord, sometimes it's much worse than that

Maryanne she's takin' in some laundry

I got a part-time job at a drive-in stand

Oh Lord, what did I do

To deserve these empty hands


Across the cities, across the land

Through the valleys and across the sand

Too many people standin' in line

Too many people with nothin' planned

There's too many people with empty hands

Now Maryanne's been cryin'

Lord knows I love her the best I can

When my pride is bruised and broken

She slips her hand into my empty hands

Without hope, without love, you've got nothing but pain

Just makes a man not give a damn

That's no way for us to live

We've got to fill these empty hands
