Talking about a Revolution (Tracy Chapman 1988)



Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It sound like a whisper
Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It's sounds like a whisper

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It sound like a whisper

Poor people gonna rise up
And get their share
Poor people gonna rise up
And take what's theirs

Don't you know
You better run, run, run...(+9)
Oh I said you better
Run, run, run...(+9)

And finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin'about revolution

Yes finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about revolution oh no

While they're standing in the welfare lines
Crying at the doorsteps of those armies of salvation
Wasting time in the unemployment lines
Sitting around waiting for a promotion

Don't you know
They're talkin' about a revolution
It sound like a whisper

And finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about revolution

Yes finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' about revolution oh no
Talkin' about revolution oh no
Talkin' about revolution oh no

Askm. Saya bersama sdr dalam perjuangan utk mewujudan keamanan sesama manusia. Mengapa manusia suka kekacauan dan ketidaktenteraman sedangkan kita lahir melalui interaksi kemesraan antara dua insan?

Insyallah, blog sdr akan saya masukkan dalam Myblog List LuahFikiran. Selamat berjuang

luahfikiran: Peace...

harapan agar sdra juga tidak
mengecualikan Revolusi Rakyat
yg mahukan perubahan demi
mengembalikan HAK mereka
dan, kita perlu melalui
'proses' keamanan ini
walaupun terpaksa
membuang yg 'lama'...:-)

p/s: kita perlu berfikiran Bebas
dan berlandas..

Kita wajar mengetahui kemana alur pemikiran ini mesti mengalir...

Barulah befikir "berlandas".. hehehe

Syirfan,

Betul kata sdra, saya setuju, alur pemikiran. Sama2lah kita membina 'landas' itu..:-)

p/s: tahniah atas kejayaan "Rosli Dhoby" Dokumentari sdra, dan saya berhasrat menayangkan pada kawan2 saya di Shah Alam ini, sdra pun ada bersama lagi bagus. InsyaAllah.

Anon: semua orang berhak bersuara, kan, kan, kan... so, terpulanglah untuk mempertahankan sesuatu. Mereka juga Rakyat. Terpulanglah sekiranya ini adalah agenda politik..mereka juga berhak membuang 'yg lama' atas nama pembangunan, konon.

Sungguhpun begitu, kita perlu memahami 'ke-bengapan' Lim itu.;-)
