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

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...
Oh I said you better Run, run, run...
Finally the tables are starting to turn
Talkin' bout a revolution

Wonderful sound!

It's called stealing in any language and no mass of people and "activists" is big enough to legitimize it.
And especially not a dumb singer/songwriter who thought she's the next Dylan.

To poor people: Tracy's net worth is around $8 million. Take it! She'll be glad.

 
What about the productivity gains that normally went to the workers up into the 1970s that execs and shareholders have since been taking - that wasn't theirs? It's not called stealing when they do it? Why are they now making 300-400 times what their average employee makes when they used to do just fine making "only" 30 times as much as their employees?

Let's not have a double standard, which in any language is what you're doing. If you're going to tell us that one lying, free-loading, tax-avoiding, conniving, extremely lucky executive son of a bitch is worth 300 or more of his/her employees, I'll tell you that you're full of shit to your ears.

Until you can write music or sing as well as TC, you don't have a right to call anyone dumb. More so given this ridiculous post of yours I quoted.
Insta-mute.  Where are the negative numbers on this rating scale?

Wrong. I run three companies, employing over 60 people and our customer base runs to 10s of thousands. . . I have a wife, grown up children and a large and multi national community I engage with. . . hardly isolated. Just because my opinion differs from you does not mean I am wrong.  

Yes, I am for revolution. While every revolution in recent history has failed, that is because they are coopted or planned and promoted by the very people the revolutionaries wanted out in the first place and ended on horrid violence.

I am for a peaceful revolution. One where people wake up to the utter bollocks that is the current state of our collective world and how it is 100% manipulated by a tiny set of elites. 

It is very gratifying that I see so many people actually waking up to the horrifying mess we now find ourselves in and this gives me real hope that we are indeed set for a revolution, one based simply on love and forgiveness, one where, as a collective force, we can reset this entire planet as it should be. That is what I promote to my children, my friends and to my wider community. I'm doing my bit.

And I don't want your goat thanks, I am a vegetarian.

Great for Wall Street and the wealthy.  Not so much for the poor suckers who bought his BS. And I mean the financially poor not the rest of the suckers who should have known that the earth would not cool and the oceans would not recede because this incompetent bone head was elected.

A nice song, but the refrain is pulling the ears a bit... :-/

I understand your bitterness about the current situation. I would say that Tracy Chapman has nothing to be ashamed with this song. It is the rest of us who should blush. We didn't listen.

So, do not take (another) mortgage.
Turn off TV - it is feeding you rubbish. Or at least do not watch: sitcoms, realities, quiz shows, standup comedians,... Just science shows.
Listen to good music.

Then you can start actually turning the tables. That seems to be the step everybody has forgotten - to actually start turning the tables. It is not a one day event, it's gonna take time and effort.

Here we are 25 years gone and I see no substantial improvement in Europe or N. America.  Russia got itself free of communism but got thoroughly reamed by Wall Street as soon as it did, along with the "Asian Tigers".  Generally, S. America is a bit more prosperous than before, but in the working classes -- the middle class is dwindling just as badly as in "The West".  The Chinese are certainly on a roll -- why?  'coz they're quietly pulling the props out from under the USA, with eager assistance from American corporations.  Islamic countries reel from blow to blow from the planetary bullyboy.

Revolutions come from massively coordinated rejection of the ruling order.  Yet, through Google, Facebook, Twitter and mobile phone GPS we surrender daily 10,000 times more information than our rulers need in order to predict in advance which of us will respond favourably to an overture of coordinated action.  Take tax declarations; 10 years ago artificial intelligence engines could run the numbers and profile every taxpayer according to their probability of avoiding taxes some time in the future.  Who doubts that the next revolutionary leaders are already earmarked for a drone attack the very hour we all take to the streets?

Does anyone have a clue what the "next revolution" will look like?

The Republicans embraced and extended the Tea Party "revolution".
The Democrats embraced and extended the Occupy "revolution".
Voters vote precisely the way the ruling class tell them to vote.

Where will the next revolution come from?  Where can it come from?  Who could lead it?

I don't really understand why I don't care for Tracy Chapman...  I don't object to her voice, I almost always enjoy songs that tell stories, the music is generally uninspired but not annoying...  Her music just does nothing for me.  Maybe it was hearing "Fast Cars" 10 billion times on the crappy radio stations back home.  I don't know.

I just can't rate anything by her over a 4.

A dreadlock set?
I have to agree with some that I've always found the lyrics somewhat dumb though I like the sentiment overall and the feel of the song; when it came out it seemed really dumb since revolution seemed about as far away as one could imagine and I thought she sounded ultra naive though heart in the right place. Anyhow, I think most of the time evolution is better than revolution. That said, I think much of this is way more serious discussion and thought and poring over a song that essentially is much simpler and not very deep really. The simplicity of the song sometimes makes me like the song more, other times less.
Why just the poor? EVERYBODY rise up and take what's theirs. Oh.. wait.. the usurpers might not like it... and they have the finest government money can buy.
Poor people gonna rise up and take what's theirs? By midnite it'll be back where it was.

This is not at all the take I have on the song, although I can see where one could come to that conclusion based on some of the language employed when viewed in isolation. I do not see this as a call to riot and steal just to advance oneself as an indivdual. This would make one just a common thief. A criminal. In my take, this is a broad call for social change. I see this as her imploring those living in poverty not to give up hope. And, correspondingly, a call to those who live in relative comfort, and beyond, to try, at least occasionally, to view things from the perspective of those at the bottom, and to contemplate whether there might be a better way. A strong and inspirational message.

Great segue, Bill, from Washington Bullets. A revolution set. Maybe John Lennon's Workingclass Hero would be fitting?

Great Album... Wonderful song! I read some of the posts, and I thought: Dont't you think it is great that a "simple" song is capable of rising different comments and opinions? Music has the power!
Don't hear much Tracy Chapman on RP, looking at the comments..I see why??????

I am of the opinion that a capitalist republic is the best system we've figured out so far (Star Trek's enlightened military dictatorship seems pretty good, but we don't know any Vulcans to set it up for us). Capitalism inherently requires stratification. However, it does not require that the gap between the richest and poorest be as large as it is today in the U.S., or worldwide, nor does it require that the poorest be lacking basic needs like food and medical care. I don't know how to fix this, other than giving as much of my time, talents, and treasures as I can spare when I'm not being a cog in the consumer machine.

Well put. I have to agree with this. As the years pass it becomes all too clear that no political system has ever been able to solve this one. Not left nor right. Socialist, Democratic, Revolutionary, Fascist, Despotic, etc. None of them And every time anybody 'rises up to take what's theirs' we get the most bloody wars. Jesus advised that 'the poor will always be with us'. And he was not wrong about anything.

Nice message, but I don't see a lot of evidence that the tables have turned in the last 15 years ... at least not in the direction Tracy had in mind.

This and Jackson Browne's Lives in a Balance bring it all together for me. Great track! My fiancee brought me into the world of Tracy Chapman about 2 years ago, not sure where i was before then. . .lol

This album is INCREDIBLE!!! I love this song. Can\'t wait for her new one (hopefully out very soon). Agreed...you can play any song from this album.
:clap: Great stuff. Almost anything from that album would be great for the playlist.
Tracy Chapman is a very gifted songwriter who also happens to be a very talented musician as well. I put her social commentary (lyrics) on a par with that of Bruce Cockburn.
Simple...stunning...great!
This song it\'s great. Nobody scored under 7. Has anybody seen this before?
