Gunman Dies After Killing at Empire State Building.

The revolution will not be right back
after a message about a white tornado, white lightning, or white people.
You will not have to worry about a dove in your

The revolution will be no re-run brothers;
The revolution will be live.

This song is by Gil Scott-Heron and appears on the album Small Talk At 125th And Lenox (1970).
