Lyrics

Let all who will eat the bread of shame, I can not
Without complaining loud and long
The taste bitter in my throat and feeling to my very soul
It's wrong
For honest work you offer me poor pay
For honest dreams your spit is in my face

So my fist is clenched today

Blame the blacks for racism
Blame the jews for fascism
Blame Africa for civil war and starvation
Blame immigrants for the crisis
Union workers for high prices

It's the age old theatrical piece
Production for profit
Called: 'Blame The Victim'

They stigmatize you, they formalize you, they brutalize you. The system lies to you
They stigmatize you, they formalize you, they brutalize you. The system fucks with you

Writer(s): Langston Hughes
