DON'T TELL ME WHAT I KNOW
IN A LIQUOR STORE WITH A SWITCHBLADE
THE SPANISH KID THOUGHT HE REALLY HAD IT MADE
THE MANAGER ON THE FLOOR HE LAID
IN THE UPTOWN ROBBERY

HE BEEN LIVING IN THE GUTTER LIKE A JACKKNIFE
A TWIST OF LUCK HAD TO RUIN HIS LIFE
HE LOST HIS KIDS WHEN HE KILLED HIS WIFE
AND HE DON'T RECALL A THING

BUT I KNOW
A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
I KNOW
WE'RE LIVING UNDER THE GUN
I KNOW
THE WORLD OUTSIDE YOU SEE
IT'S A LITTLE UNKIND
I KNOW
A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
I KNOW
WE'RE LIVING UNDER THE GUN
I KNOW
IF HELL IS WHERE YOU GO
DON'T TELL ME WHAT I KNOW

A WHITE DRAGON WAR IN CHINATOWN
WOMEN, DRUGS, TERRITORIAL GROUND
THEY FIGHT FOR BLOOD, THEY DON'T FOOL AROUND
IT AIN'T NO SIGHT TO SEE

THEY BEEN WAITING ON THE CORNER FOR D-DAY
WHEN THEY GO TO WAR, A BACK ALLEY MATINEE
THEY RATTLE CHAINS AND BLOW EACH OTHER AWAY
'TIL THE COPS PUT ON THE FREEZE

BUT I KNOW
A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
I KNOW
WE'RE LIVING UNDER THE GUN
I KNOW
THE WORLD OUTSIDE YOU SEE
IT'S A LITTLE UNKIND
I KNOW
A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
I KNOW
WE'RE LIVING UNDER THE GUN
I KNOW
IF HELL IS WHERE YOU GO
DON'T TELL ME WHAT I KNOW

THERE'S GOTTA BE SOME OTHER WAY AROUND THE ANGUISH AND THE PAIN
EVERYTHING IS GETTING WORSE, AND IT LOOKS LIKE RAIN...

YOU GOTTA A WHITE COLLAR JOB AT THE STOCK TRADE
A BANK ACCOUNT BUT YOU CAN'T GET LAID
YOUR DAUGHTER'S NEVER HOME AND YOUR WIFE COMPLAINS
INSULT TO INJURY

SO YOU HEAD OUT TONIGHT ON THE HIGHWAY
SOME LONELY BAR WHERE YOU PUT A FEW AWAY
YOU PICK UP A HOOKER, YOU CALL IT A DAY
DON'T RETURN THE MOTEL KEY

BUT I KNOW
A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
I KNOW
WE'RE LIVING UNDER THE GUN
I KNOW
THE WORLD OUTSIDE YOU SEE
IT'S A LITTLE UNKIND
I KNOW
A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
I KNOW
WE'RE LIVING UNDER THE GUN
I KNOW
IF HELL IS WHERE YOU GO
DON'T TELL ME WHAT I KNOW

A CHANGE IS GONNA COME
I KNOW
WE'RE LIVING UNDER THE GUN
I KNOW
IF HELL IS WHERE YOU GO
DON'T TELL ME WHAT I KNOW
