Social Distortion — Don't Drag Me Down lyrics

Children are taught to hate, parents just couldn't wait Some are rich and some are poor, others will just suffer more. Have you ever been ashamed and felt society try and keep you down? I begin to watch things change and see them turn around.

Chorus:
Turn around, they'll try and keep you down. Turn around, turn around... Don't drag me down!

Ignorance like a gun in hand, reach out to the promised land Your history books are full of lies, media-blitz gonna dry your eyes. Have you ever been afraid and felt society try and keep you down? I begin to watch things change and see them turn around.

Repeat Chorus

Ignorance like a gun in hand, reach out to the promised land. Your history books are full of lies, media-blitz gonna dry your eyes. Your eighteen, you wanna be a man, your granddaddy's in the Ku Klux Klan! Taking two steps forward and two steps back I wanna go to the White House and paint it black!

Repeat Chorus
