“The revolution will not be televised” – Gil Scott-Heron

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 will not be able to lose yourself on skag and skip,
Skip out for beer during commercials,
Because the revolution will not be televised.

The revolution will not be televised, will not be televised,
will not be televised, will not be televised.
The revolution will be no rerun, brothers;
The revolution will be live.

– Gil Scott-Heron (1970)
