Janet Jackson

Janet Jackson's, "Rhythm Nation"
Better Lyrics:
This is a mess
Still struggling, no justice
Despite cries for help
More endless violence
'Nother civil war?
Charleston church massacre
White killer, racist land
Despite our prayers, we're wronged

People in the USA
Are we goin' back to the old way of life?
We are a part of a divided nation
Segregated Black & White
Justice slumbers, where the Reb Flag flies
Hope dies
We are a part of a divided nation, Y'all
Original Lyrics:
This is a test
No struggle, no progress
Lend a hand to help
Your brother do his best
Things are getting worse
We have to make them better
It's time to give a damn
Let's work together, come on

People of the world today
Are we looking for a better way of life
We are a part of the rhythm nation
People of the world unite
Strength in numbers we can get it right
One time
We are a part of the rhythm nation
