Revolution Verse 1

 Index

Scott-Heron verses are in the left table column and mine are in the right column.   The annotations about the changes are at the bottom.

You will not be able to stay home, brother.

You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out.

You will not be able to lose yourself on skag and

skip out for beer during commercials,

Because the revolution will not be televised.
You will not be able to stay home, brother

You will not be able to plug in, turn on, and cop out.

You not be able to lose yourself in xbox and

skip out for beer during commercials,

Because the revolution will not be televised.

 

Changed skag to xbox because I consider video games just another addiction for the escapist.   A possible metaphor could be the elderly slot zombies I see at the casinos sometimes seated at a video slot pressing a button every 35 seconds because there are no handles on the machines.  Xbox,  elderly-slot-zombies, Facebook.
