Lyrics

I cry, I cry
I was born in a land
I don't think you understand
God damn what I am
I'm a native of this place
Please don't kick me in my face
My race has been disgraced

Won't somebody testify
Kick a hole right in the sky
Testify, testify kick a hole right in the sky
Slap a liar in his eye
Kick a hole right in the sky
Testify, testify kick a hole right in the sky
Johnny, johnny, johnny

I wonder why, why
Put us in a pumpkin shell
Where you keep us very well
It's hell, where I dwell
When history books are full of shit
I become the anarchist
I'm pissed at this
What this country claims to be
It's a lie
No place for me
I bleed

Won't somebody testify
Kick a hole right in the sky
Testify, testify kick a hole right in the sky
Slap a liar in his eye
Kick a hole right in the sky
Testify, testify kick a hole right in the sky
Johnny, johnny, johnny

I decide to defy
Kill my trust if you must
But in my blood there is the lust
For life that's right
Apache blood is in my heart
Thrashing though me like a shark
Crashing through the dark

Won't somebody testify
Kick a hole right in the sky
Testify, testify kick a hole right in the sky
Slap a liar in his eye
Kick a hole right in the sky
Testify, testify kick a hole right in the sky
Johnny, johnny, johnny

I confide, confide
What am I supposed to do
I feel like I'm cut in two
Confused by rules
Do these two cultures clash
Or am I living in the past
I ask please tell me fast

Won't somebody testify
Kick a hole right in the sky
Testify, testify kick a hole right in the sky
Slap a liar in his eye
Kick a hole right in the sky
Testify, testify kick a hole right in the sky
Johnny, johnny, johnny

I, that's right
To what do I belong
And if I change will I be wrong
Be wrong, that's wrong
I took my foot and kicked a hole in the sky
I proceeded to plead for fathers help me decide
A jagged flash of light struck me in the eye
I turned around and found that I was still alive
Snakes rise high from the purple black sky
The red cloud rains and the black horse rides
Then it dawned on me like the mornin' sun
I'm a part of two worlds and the mornin' comes
Glowing embers tend to remember when
The power that is peace was treated as a friend
I am a master of adaption and I've got to take action
I'm a man, the animal man
