​Who Gonna Save Us

This song is by Smif-N-Wessun.

Us
Who gonna save us?
Who gonna save us?
Who gonna save us?
Who gonna save us?
Who gonna save us?

We got casualties unthinkable
How does one survive when he's livin' with waters undrinkable
For years we sat back and watched TV commercials
About what five cents a day could do

And it's been documented, some give, some didn't
But in our country some of us couldn't
So, what's the use of the organization
If the funds ain't goin' to the proper destination

We livin' in the world of technology
Still we do nothin' to stop all of these catastrophes
Reports said they knew the levies would break in New Orleans
So, why wasn't people given a warnin'?

Mr. President only takes precedent
When the threats closer to his residents
And it's a cryin' shame, they let us die in vain
Got all the money in the world and still nothin' change

Who gonna save us when tragedy hits
And now where you livin' no longer exists?
Who gonna save us when the real threat appears
And our military is no longer feared?

Who gonna save us when the skies gonna stop pourin'
And we keep blamin' global warmin'?
Who gonna save us when all else fails
And we finally realize we gotta save ourselves

We got war against the streets and against drugs
War against terrorists and against guns
War against the music we purchasin'
Illegal downloadin' and is hurtin' 'em

Let it be known about the effort bein' spent
That the world ain't ready for a Black President
Obama, I stand beside ya
Gun in hand and body armor

Who gonna save us when tragedy hits
And now where you livin' no longer exists?
Who gonna save us when the real threat appears
And our military is no longer feared?

Who gonna save us when the skies gonna stop pourin'
And we keep blamin' global warmin'?
Who gonna save us when all else fails
And we finally realize we gotta save ourselves

You know that we was born to die
And in between that time is where your destiny lies
Some already born into a lifestyle
While other seek choices of why and how like

How we so poor or why my skin so black?
We just give opinions and no facts
So, they take the first option they see
If I join the service I can go to school for free

But they always blurrin' out the fine print
You gonna be a guinea pig and we sign it
Now you're gettin' needles, carryin' diseases
Gotcha fightin' for beliefs you don't even believe in

Ask not what you can do for your country
But what your country can do for you real bluntly
And tell the people the truth of what they fightin' for
Before you just send them away to die in some war

Who gonna save us?
Who gonna save us?
