Equality – Give it to us (a capella)

Equality – Give it to us (add your flavor/remix this tune)
Melody and Lyrics: Lonnie Ray Atkinson
This is a song about resistance and choices under extreme (often absurd) levels of oppression. I was thinking maybe something world beat. The vocals are quite raw with no effects (and because I do not have the voice for this kind of a song, if you know anyone who would be interested in doing a better vocal, it would certainly be welcome). If you are interested (or you think you know someone that might be interested) in adding some music/tracks/beats (or better vocals) to the mix, you can download the raw a capellas here at ccMixter (just click on the word "download" under the word "stream"). When you are done, you can email me any mp3s here.

Lyrics:
equality, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, or we will give it to you
– how long, how long must we wait / how long, how long must we wait
each day you betray us is just one day closer / to the moment you find it's too late
– no longer will you see us bleed, no longer will you see us bleed
because we are more than the victims you make us, more than the children you need
equality, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, or we will give it to you
– don't let the message fall on deaf ears / don't let the message fall on deaf ears
if you do, then closing your eyes will not save you / save you from the next thing you hear
equality, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, or we will give it to you
we will give it to, we will give it to, we will give it to you
we will give it to, we will give it to, we will give it to you
we will give it to, we will give it to, we will give it to you
we will give it to, we will give it to, we will give it to you
– hope and conscience go hand in hand, hope and conscience go hand in hand
when you take away one you take away the other, this thing you must understand
equality, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, or we will give it to you
we will give it to, we will give it to, we will give it to you
we will give it to, we will give it to, we will give it to you
we will give it to, we will give it to, we will give it to you
we will give it to, we will give it to, we will give it to you
equality, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, give it to us, or we will give it to you
