lyrics

Another young black man lying in the street dead
four hundred years of racial hatred
You say, "it's a shame, isn't it a pity?
That's just life here living in the city"

You ought to know by now
You wanted change but you act the same
There's no better way to define insane

Pick up the news they ain't buying what you're selling
'cause the truth on the ground ain't the truth your telling
One man is dead, the other is a liar
So tonight we'll set this town on fire

Don't let 'em tell you it's the way it's gotta be
Nobody's free until everybody's free*
A lot of people workin hard trying to make it better
Black, white and brown we've got to come together

You ought to know by now
We want change but we act the same
There's no better way to define insane

All that we do keeps falling apart

* Fannie Lou Hamer

Red Kate Kansas City, Missouri

Red Kate is a no bullshit, class conscious punk rock & roll band from Kansas City that includes members of regional and national acts Wayback Machine, Squadcar, River City Revelators, and American Catastrophe. The band's sound tips a cap to the beer soaked barroom floors of the 70s British Pub-Rock scene and the modern blues-punk sound that has since taken root in Midwest dive bars and basements. ... more
