Riding through Harlem in my bulletproof car
Inside a glass shell you say keeps us from harm
My music's playing loudly and people gather round
They wonder what we're doing in their part of town
I try to reach out reach out and touch my brother's hand
walls are too thick now lord there must be something wrong
If we'd just listen closely we might just get along
Wake me from my sleep now
take me from my dream
Don't leave me here in Harlem
you made the streets so mean
This ain't no revolution
This ain't no civil war
Just driving through Harlem in my bulletproof car.
Now the signals changing, they change from green to red
I see a confrontation, it's lying dead ahead.
It all seems so familiar part of an endless scene
You say it's so peculiar but you're the one in need.
So now you're talking saying that it's me versus him
But I don't pick the sides and I don't want to win.
So don't call my number and ask to fall in line
When you don't have solutions and you've run out of time.
Wake me from my sleep now ... (etc)
