The Songs of Gallus Line
Beat Us Down
Gallus Line
©1992, 2000
The man's not happy today.
He heard the news today.
The man's not happy today.
He's going out for a walk he's got something to say.

The people gather in the street. (3X)
Yeah, they're angry and
They're shouting at everyone they meet.

The man joins in the crowd. (3X)
They're angry, they're violent, so very loud.

The man drives in his car.
The crowd is in his way.
The man drives in his car.
They pull him out on the ground he does lay.

They beat him on the ground. (3X)
His blood is flowing all around.

They move on to a store. (3X)
They loot it 'til they cannot loot it any more.

They set the store on fire. (3X)
The flames in the night time growing higher.

The city burns in the night. (3X)
The truth lies in that terrible sight.

We beat each other down. (3X)
Black and white, yellow, gray, or brown.
