 “Madagascar” - Guns and Roses


I won't be told anymore

That I've been brought down in this storm

And left so far out from the shore

That I can't find my way back, my way anymore


No I won't be told anymore

That I've been brought back in this storm

And left so far out from the shore

That I can't find my way back, my way anymore


No, I..

No, I...


Forgive them they teared down my soul

Bless them that they might grow old

And free them so that they may know

That it's never too late


For the many times would seem like a memory

I searched and found the way to choose to the end

I found the ways, why it had to be

Mired in denial and saw all the rain


If we ever find it true

Life we have is made to choose

Free the ball, the chain

We're here together


I'm gonna tell you a story

Stand up for righteousness!


What?


Stand up for justice!


What?


Stand up for truth!


How can a person grow up with all this around them?

You got to call on that something

Where does it come from?

That can make a way out of no way


All this hatred?

What we've got here is..


Fear!


That power that can make a way out of now no way


Failure to communicate


I tell ya I seen the lightning...I've heard the thunder roll!

Everybody's acting like we can do anything and it don't matter what we

Do. Maybe we gotta be extra careful because maybe it matters more than


We even know..

Sometimes...

Hatred isn't somethin' you're born with

I feel discouraged


It gets taught

Sometimes I feel discouraged

I felt this fear

He promised never to leave me, never to leave me alone, no never alone,


No never alone!

Let's get something straight, alright?


Promised never to leave me!

This whole thing was fucked up


Never to leave me alone!

All men betray. All lose heart!


I don't want to lose heart!...I want to believe

Black men and white men

Together at the table of brotherhood!

I have a dream


Free at last! Free at last!


Thank God almighty!!


WE ARE FREE AT LAST!!


I won't be told anymore

That I've been brought down in this storm

And left so far out from the shore

And I can't find my way back, my way anymore


No I won't be told anymore

That I've been brought back in this storm

And left so far out from the shore

That I can't find my way back, my way anymore
