  1. Don't Believe It

From the recording Toiling in Obscurity

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
