Story Behind the Song

History of this country's racial prejudice from the 50s to today. This songs commemorates the day Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated - April 4, 1968. It's been 50 years and we all need to make it our duty to fulfill his legacy.

Lyrics

50 years ago - no more Dr. King
50 years have passed - what did progress bring?
50 years from now - how well we look back
A century ahead will we be on-track?

What are we waiting for?
Blood to shed even more
What are we waiting for?
We won't stand for any more!

Pressed white robes a burnin' cross
A loud mob shouts "turn back the clock"
Tick, tick, toc keep those hands movin' free
True progress means no repeating history

What are we waiting for
Blood to shed even more
What are we waiting for
We won't stand for any more!

In the streets and pews brave blacks and whites
Paid for freedom with their own lives
I had a dream can not be squashed
Raise your voices now else freedom's lost.

What are we waiting for?
Blood to shed even more
What are we waiting for?
We won't stand for any more!

No down-trodden from African soil
Said the Naked Emperor who love turmoil
Forget those huddled masses waiting to be free
You can't get in unless you look like me!

What are we waiting for
Blood to shed even more
What are we waiting for
We won't stand for any more!
