Mao Tse Tung Said

This song is by Alabama 3 and appears on the album Exile on Coldharbour Lane (1997).

Rev Jim Jones: Don't ever say hate is your enemy. Love has practically caused me to just get you destroyed. If I had hated a little more, just a little more, we would have had a little less trouble. Sure you got love. Principles! But don't say 'hate is my enemy', what'd they say, what's that words? "Hate is my enemy and I've got to fight it day and night" and "what else is death" is the line. Love is the only weapon, SHIT. BULLSHIT! Martin Luther King died with love! Kennedy died talking about something he couldn't even understand, some kind of generalized love, and he never even backed it up! He was shot down! Bullshit, "Love is the only weapon with which I got to fight". I've got a hell of a lot of weapons to fight! I got my claws, I got cutlasses, I got guns, I got dynamite, I got a hell of a lot of fight! I'll fight! I'll fight! I will fight! I will fight! I will fight! I will fight!

Let them hear it in the night! Yes, we'll fight! They're listening. Let the night roar! Let the night roar, because they can hear us, they know we mean it. We'll kill them if they come!

Mao Tse Tung said change must come
Change must come through the barrel of a gun
Not through talkin' and not through waitin'
And sittin' around just contemplatin' the facts
'Cause we know what they are
So let Mao Tse Tung be your guidin' star
Pick up a gun and learn how to fight
All through the day and all through the night
'Til come the day when the last fight's won
I want you to listen, son
'Cause Mao Tse Tung said change must come
Through the barrel of a gun
I want you to listen, son
Change must come
Change must come through the barrel of a gun

- Okay. What was the basic premise of Mao? Mao Tse Tung said there's only one way a revolution can come. Do you know, Millie? How did Mao Tse Tung say the only way you can bring a revolution and keep it?
- Where you- onliest way I think you can keep it is by being at peace and being honorable.
- Oh, shit, I ain't- no- "being at peace"? Mao Tse Tung said that?
- Oh-
- No no no no-
- Wait a minute- Oh-
- -He's the head of China. He's the head of the Revolution of China.
- No, I'm sorry.
- He marched 6000 people... on the Long March.
- I had my mind on something else.
- Okay then, wha- wha- what'd he say? There only one way you can bring about a revolution for people.
- Only way you can- only way you can bring it on, that by- is by killing.
- Well, what- yes, that's okay, I'm going to let you pass it -but what'd he say? He had a nice little phrase that everybody should know. "Change only comes-"
- Oh-
- You got it. "Change comes through..."

- "-Through- by a barrel of gun."
- That's right, senior. And that's good. 'Cause you, by rights, would have every reason to forget some things. "Change must come through the barrel of gun," said Mao Tse Tung. This place would be a paradise tomorrow if every department had a supervisor with a submachine gun.
Let them hear it in the night! Yes, we'll fight! Let the night roar, because they can hear us, they know we mean it. We'll kill them if they come!
