Michael & Janet Jackson - Scream





(hat tip to Alienpunk)

Notice that Michael smashes a triangular guitar starting at the 46th second.

[Michael]
Tired of injustice Tired of the schemes
The lies are disgusting So what does it mean
Kicking me down I got to get up
As jacked as it sounds The whole system sucks

[Janet]
Peek in the shadow Come into the light
You tell me I'm wrong
Then you better prove you're right
You're sellin' out souls but I care about mine
I've got to get stronger And I won't give up the fight

[Michael]
With such confusions
don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme
(Janet)
You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize
[Both]
Somebody please have mercy
'Cause I just can't take it
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make me wanna scream

[Michael]
Tired of you tellin' the story your way
It's causin' confusion You think it's okay

[Janet]
You Keep changin' the rules
While I keep playin' the game
I can't take it much longer
I think I might go insane

[Michael]
With such confusion
don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize
within the scheme
(Janet)
You find your pleasure scandalizin' every lie
[Both]
Oh father, please have mercy 'cause I just can't take it
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make me wanna scream
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop *?!@#!ing with me
Make me wanna scream

[Janet]
"Oh my God, can't believe what I saw
As I turned on the TV this evening
I was disgusted by all the injustice
All the injustice"
[Michael]
"All the injustice"

[News Man]
"A man has been brutally beaten to death by Police after being wrongly identified as a robbery suspect. The man was an 18 year old black male..."

[Michael]
With such collusions
don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize
within the scheme
[Janet]
You try to cope with every
lie they scrutinize
[Both]
Oh brother please have mercy
'Cause I just can't take it
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make me wanna scream

Michael Jackson: Jam - "Confusions Contradict the Self"

Nation To Nation All The World Must Come Together
Face The Problems That We See
Then Maybe Somehow We Can Work It Out
I Asked My Neighbor For A Favor She Said Later
What Has Come Of All The People
Have We Lost Love Of What It's About

I Have To Find My Peace Cause No One Seems To Let Me Be
False Prophets Cry Of Doom What Are The Possibilities
I Told My Brother There'll Be Problems,
Times And Tears For Fears,
We Must Live Each Day Like It's The Last

Go With It Go With It Jam
It Ain't Too Much Stuff
It Ain't Too Much
It Ain't Too Much For Me To Jam
It Ain't
It Ain't Too Much Stuff
It Ain't Don't You
It Ain't Too Much For Me To

The World Keeps Changing
Rearranging Minds And Thoughts
Predictions Fly Of Doom
The Baby Boom Has Come Of Age
We'll Work It Out

I Told My Brothers
Don't You Ask Me For No Favors
I'm Conditioned By The System
Don't You Talk To Me
Don't Scream And Shout

She Pray To God, To Buddha
Then She Sings A Talmud Song
Confusions Contradict the Self
Do We Know Right From Wrong
I Just Want You To Recognize Me In The Temple
You Can't Hurt Me
I Found Peace Within Myself
