Story

I wrote this one at the last minute, when inspiration struck. It features Marc Pero on bass and June Yamagishi on guitar from Papa Grows Funk, and has a great rap from Big Chief Monk Boudreaux on the outro. Also featured is world reknowned African drummer Seguenon Kone.

Lyrics

Don’t Believe It We the people need to know Just cause they say it don’t make it so Don’t Believe It Don’t Believe it When the talk turns to war They gonna tell you what it’s for Don’t Believe It Don’t Believe It When he shouts Let Freedom Ring What he means is oil is king Don’t Believe It Chorus: None of what you hear Half of what you see Just one thing is clear Things ain’t what they seem If they say that levee’s fine Ask around the Lower Nine Don’t Believe It Don’t Believe it If the good hands got your back You’re in trouble that’s a fact Don’t Believe It, Don’t Believe it They don’t have the funds To fix the damage done Don’t Believe It Chorus Can’t afford to fix the schools Lord they take us all for fools Don’t Believe It Don’t Believe It Costs too much to save the earth Tell me what’s this planet worth Don’t Believe It If they say the sky is blue Look outside make sure it’s true Don’t Believe it None of what you hear Half of what you see Who you gonna believe Your own eyes or me Don’t Believe It
