Lauryn Hill – Black Rage Chords and Lyrics

Artist : Lauryn Hill
Song : Black Rage

[Intro] : Em Am D G Bm

[Verse 1] : 
Em
  Black rage is founded on two-thirds a person
Am
  Raping and beatings and suffering that worsens
Em            D        Bm    Am   G
  Black human packages tied up in strings 
  Em                         Am            Bm  
  Black rage can come from all these kinds of things.

Em
  Black rage is founded on blatant denial, 
Am
  sweet economics, subsistent survival, 
Em           D      Bm  Am         G
  deafening silence and social control, 
  Em                      Am               Bm
  black rage is found in all forms in the soul,

[Chorus] : 
Em                  Am                   G                    Em
  When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad,
Am                                                     G                  Em
  I simply remember all these kinds of things, and then I don’t fear so bad

[Verse 2] : 
Em
  Black rage is founded who fed us self hatred 
Am
  Lies and abuse while we waited and waited 
  Em         D
  Spiritual treason 
  Bm           Am        G
  This grid and it's cages 
  Em                      Am              Bm
  Black rage was founded on these kinds of things 

Em
  Black rage is founded on dreaming and draining 
Am  
  Threatening your freedom 
  Em
  To stop your complaining 
  D             Bm
  Poisoning your water 
  Am                        G
  While they say it's raining 
  Em                  Am                  Bm
  Then call you mad for complaining, complaining 

Em
  Old time bureaucracy 
Am
  Drugging the youth 
  Em
  Black rage is founded on blocking the truth 
  D
  Murder and crime 
  Bm             Am
  Compromise and distortion 
  G          Em
  Sacrifice, sacrifice 
  Am           Bm
  Who makes this fortune? 
  Em                   D
  Greed, falsely called progress 
  Bm         Am       G
  Such human contortion 
  Em                      Am              Bm
  Black rage is founded on these kinds of things 

[Chorus] : 
Em                  Am                   G                    Em
  When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad,
Am                                                     G                  Em
  I simply remember all these kinds of things, and then I don’t fear so bad
