U.k. subs - Black power salute

Ninteen-sixty-eight, USA
A million black models having their day
Mexico city, blood-red sky, polite stain here, fists held high

Some for justice, rectify
With snipping columns struck their pride

Took a black power salute
Took a black power salute
Took a black power salute
Take a free to define the truth


Political protests of a higher time
For simple rights better be in deny
Our lives in wait, our end directed
A revolution, our distant nights

Some for justice, rectify
With snipping columns struck their pride

Took a black power salute
Took a black power salute
Took a black power salute
Take a free to define the truth

Took a black power salute
Took a black power salute
Took a black power salute
Take a free to define the truth
