Across the Lines - Tracy Chapman

    Across the lines
    Who would dare to go
    Under the bridge
    Over the tracks
    That separates whites from blacks
    Choose sides
    Or run for your life
    Tonight the riots begin
    On the back streets of America
    They kill the dream of America

    Little black girl gets assaulted
    Ain't no reason why
    Newspaper prints the story
    And racist tempers fly
    Next day it starts a riot
    Knives and guns are drawn
    Two black boys get killed
    One white boy goes blind


    Little black girl gets assaulted
    No one know her name
    Lots of people hurt and angry
    She's the one to blame

    Hmm ...
