It just so happens that this long-running reggae group is from Birmingham – not Alabama, where King was infamously imprisoned, but Birmingham, England. The multiracial act's first single was a lament for Dr. King; the flip side, 'Food for Thought,' was about famine in Africa.
King, where are your people now ?
Chained and pacified.
Tried in vain to show them how.
And for that you died.

You had a dream of a promised land.
People of all nations walking hand in hand
But they`re not ready to accept
That dream situation, yet.


King, where are your people now ?
Chained and pacified.
Tried in vain to show them how.
And for that you died.
