Don't Drag Me Down

Don't Drag Me Down

Social Distortion

Children are taught to hate, parents just couldn't wait
Some are rich and some are poor, others will just suffer more
Have you ever been ashamed and felt society try to keep you down?
I begin to watch things change and see them turn around

[Chorus:]
Turn around, they'll try to keep you down
Turn around, Turn around
Don't drag me down

Ignorance like a gun in hand, reach out to the promised land
Your history books are full of lies, media-blitz gonna dry your eyes
Have you ever been afraid, and felt society try to keep you down?
I begin to watch things change see them turn around

[Chorus]

Ignorance like a gun in hand
Reach out to the promised land
Your history books are full of lies,
Media -blitz gonna dry your eyes
You're eighteen want to be a man
Your granddaddy's in the Ku Klux Klan
Taking two steps forward
And four steps back
Gonna go to the White House
And paint it black

[Chorus]
