Against the Chance

(david m. bailey)
January, 1999
Almost daybreak, rain coming down....
so much at stake lying onthe ground
trees are dancing such an angry dance
running int he rain, running against the chance

every hero, black or white
gonna have his day gonna lose a fight
and it’s always more than just circumestance
when youre running against the chance

outta luck, outta time
outta reason outta rhyme
no more laughter no romance
don’t fool yourself, you can kill yourself
you better watch yourself
when you’re running against the chance

it’s a battle of the 3rd degree
your eyes will burn, and the fire is free
pierce your heart with the devil’s lance
if you wanna run, against the chance
