A needless and harrowing future is developing For our generation and generations to come But as I walk the chartered streets of this familiar oblivion I recognize nothing but unweilding consciousness In which we have almost comfortably drowned
It is madness, this normality is madness We are clinging to manufactured crippled constraints We must no longer commute between brand-ladened homes And quickly accepted aimless roams from Our factories of slavery, to raws of elusive bravery We must unite
And we must let the flood gates open Here tonight, I clock a thousand heads Here to unite, through common dreads

Carla Thomas became the first woman to achieve a Top 10 hit on the Hot 100 with a song she wrote herself when "Gee Whiz (Look At His Eyes)" reached the chart's top tier in 1961. Thomas was just 16-years-old when she penned it.
