Thursday music: Scream

Ooh, weird!  I heard this song on the radio today, and then my iTunes pulled it up to be featured today!  :b  I was surprised that it was uncensored on the radio.  I guess the only curse word in the song isn't really that easy to hear.

I'm not a huge Michael Jackson fan.  I think he was incredibly talented and had great music, but I'm only really in love with a few of his songs.  "Scream" is not one of the songs I'm in love with, but I do really like listening to it.

The song is about Jackson's feelings toward the tabloid press.  Seeing as Jackson was one of the most if well-known celebrities internationally, I don't think I need to explain Jackson's history with the press.  I don't know what's really true or not.  I didn't follow his life that closely.  I also don't really care.  I just like his music, including this song!  :)





 Lyrics

Tired of injustice.
Tired of the schemes.
The lies are disgusting,
So what does it mean?
Kicking me down,
I got to get up.
As jacked as it sounds,
The whole system sucks.

Peek in the shadow.
Come into the light.
You tell me I'm wrong,
Then you better prove you're right.
You're sellin' out souls, but
I care about mine.
I've got to get stronger,
And I won't give up the fight.

With such confusion, don't it make you wanna scream?
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme.

You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize.
Somebody, please have mercy 'cause I just can't take it.

Stop pressurin' me.
Just stop pressurin' me.
Stop pressurin' me,
Make me wanna scream.
Stop pressurin' me.
Just stop pressurin' me.
Stop pressurin' me,
Make you just wanna scream.

Tired of you tellin' the story your way.
It's causin' confusion.
You think it's okay.

You keep changin' the rules
While I keep playin' the game.
I can't take it much longer.
I think I might go insane.

With such confusion, don't it make you wanna scream?
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme.

You find your pleasure scandalizin' every lie.

Oh father, please have mercy 'cause I just can't take it.

Stop pressurin' me.
Just stop pressurin' me.
Stop pressurin' me,
Make me wanna scream.
Stop pressurin' me.
Just stop pressurin' me.
Stop fuckin' with me,
Make me wanna scream.

Oh my God, can't believe what I saw
As I turned on the T.V. this evening.
I was disgusted by all the injustice.


All the injustice.

A man has been brutally beaten to death by police after being wrongly identified as a robbery suspect. The man was an 18-year-old black male...

With such collusions, don't it make you wanna scream?
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme.

You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize.
Oh brother, please have mercy 'cause I just can't take it.

Stop pressurin' me.
Just stop pressurin' me.
Stop pressurin' me,
Make me wanna scream.
Stop pressurin' me.
Just stop pressurin' me.
Stop pressurin' me,
Make me wanna scream.
Stop pressurin' me.
Just stop pressurin' me.
Stop pressurin' me,
Make me wanna scream.
Stop pressurin' me.
Just stop pressurin' me.
Stop pressurin' me,
Make me wanna scream.
