Song Meaning
Verse 1
I saw a dried up river and a rich man
Turning on a garden hose
I see a young man picking up a gun
I guess that's where the money goes, yeah
Verse 2
Am I just as good as a bad man
Sleeping while the rest are dying?
Or am I just as bad as a good man
Saying there's no use of trying?
Verse 3
Ooh, tell me do you still believe
Ooh, everything that you read?
Till we learn to get together
And see who we really are
Verse 4
Ain't nothing gonna change
Ain't nothing gonna change
If nobody's gonna wake up
And start asking who's in charge
Verse 5
Ain't nothing gonna change
Ain't nothing gonna change
Ain't nothing gonna change
Verse 6
Ain't shit changing but diapers on babies
Get higher than the background singers singing, singing
Okay singing
Verse 7
Some people do it all for money
And some do it all for their love, yeah
Some do it all for the glory
'Cause nothing else they're thinking of
Verse 8
I saw a man in a four door truck
Complaining that the price is high
Like a well feed man with a spoon in his hand
Saying who ate all the apple pie, yeah
Verse 9
Ooh, tell me do you still believe
Ooh, everything that you read?
Till we learn to get together
And see who we really are
Verse 10
Ain't nothing gonna change
Ain't nothing gonna change
If nobody's gonna wake up
And start asking who's in charge
Verse 11
Ain't nothing gonna change
Ain't nothing gonna change
Ain't nothing gonna change
Verse 12
If I ain't ready to listen I'm never gonna listen
Most follow intuition while they wishing it would work
And my vision isn't perfect so I will never look for it
Don't wish for some change like a church worker
Verse 13
Hallelujah, preacher I am not influenced
If I don't donate to your movement am I not improving?
And while the poor kill the poor for a portion
A piece of American society pie
Verse 14
I get high, the munchies I got so bear witness
I got this girl looking at you 'cause my reps kissing
And I ain't ready to wait when there's dollars on the brain
Why would you expect change?
Verse 15
Till we learn to get together
And see who we really are
Verse 16
Ain't nothing gonna change
Ain't nothing gonna change
If nobody's gonna wake up
And start asking who's in charge
Verse 17
Ain't nothing gonna change
Ain't nothing gonna change
Ain't nothing gonna change, no, no
Verse 18
Ain't shit changing but diapers on babies
Get higher than the background singers singing, singing
