Equal Rights
Peter Tosh
Album: Equal Rights

Everyone is crying out for peace, yes,
none is crying out for justice.
Everyone is crying out for peace, yes,
none is crying out for justice.

I don't want no peace,
I need equal rights and justice.
I need equal rights and justice.
I need equal rights and justice.
Got to get it! Equal rights and justice.

Everybody want to go to heaven
but nobody want to die.
Everybody want to go up to heaven
but none o' them, none o' them, want to die.

I don't want no peace,
I man need equal rights and justice.
I've got to get it! Equal rights and justice.
I really need it! Equal rights and justice.
Just give me my share! Equal rights and justice.

What is due to Caesar
you better give it on to Caesar.
And what belong to I and I
you better, you better, give it up to I.

Cause I don't want no peace,
I need equal rights and justice.
I need equal rights and justice.
I've got to get it! Equal rights and justice.
I'm fighting for it! Equal rights and justice.

Everyone heading for the top
but tell me how far is it from the bottom?
Nobody knows but
everybody fighting to reach the top
how far is it from the bottom?

I don't want no peace,
I want equal rights and justice.
I need equal rights and justice.
I've got to get it! Equal rights and justice.
I really need it! Equal rights and justice.

Everyone is talking about crime,
tell me who are the criminals?
I said everybody's talking about crime, crime,
tell me who, who are the criminals?
I really don't see them!

I don't want no peace,
I need equal rights and justice.
We got to get!
Equal rights and justice. And there'd be no crime!
Equal rights and justice. There be no criminals!
Equal rights and justice.
Everyone is fighting for equal rights and justice.
Palestine is fighting for equal rights and justice.
Down in Angola. Equal rights and justice.
Down in Botswana. Equal rights and justice.
Down in Zimbabwe. Equal rights and justice.
Down in Rhodesia. Equal rights and justice.
Right here in Jamaica. Equal rights and justice.
