Scream is een nummer van broer en zus Michael en Janet Jackson. Het nummer staat op het album HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book I, een verzamelalbum van Michael Jacksons grootste hits met daarbij een aantal nieuwe nummers, waarvan Scream/Childhood de eerste single werd. Het nummer gaat over de massale media-aandacht die de twee kregen in hun carrières en hun moeilijke relatie met hun vader. Het duo kreeg een Grammynominatie voor "beste samenwerking". Het nummer Childhood was de B-kant van Scream/Childhood, gezongen door Michael Jackson alleen. Het is bekend geworden doordat het de titelsong was voor Free Willy 2. Michael Jackson heeft ooit gezegd dat als iemand hem écht wil leren kennen, hij naar Childhood moet luisteren. In het nummer verwoordt Jackson de pijn die hij voelt aan oude herinneringen.

Trivia

Wist je dat? De videoclip van "Scream" werd een van de best ontvangen videoclips voor Michael Jackson. De clip werd geregisseerd door Mark Romanek. De clip heeft een nogal sciencefictionachtig thema, met af en toe een invloed uit de popcultuur (zoals het zelfportret van Andy Warhol). Met zeven miljoen Amerikaanse dollar is de clip van het nummer de duurste aller tijden. Met de clip werden verschillende MTV Video Music Awards gewonnen, net als een Grammy Award voor beste korte videoclip.

Songtekst

(Michael):
Tired of injustice
Tired of the schemes
The lies are disgusting
So what does it mean
Kicking me down
I got to get up
As jacked as it sounds
The whole system sucks

(Janet):
Peek in the shadow
Come into the light
You tell me I'm wrong
Then you better prove you're right
You're sellin' out souls
I care about mine
I've got to get stronger
And I won't give up the fight

(Michael):
With such confusions don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme
(Janet):
You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize
(Both):
Somebody please have mercy 'cause I just can't take it

Chorus:
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make me wanna scream
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make you just wanna scream

(Michael):
Tired of you tellin' the story your way
It's causin' confusion
You think it's okay

(Janet):
Keep changin' the rules
While I keep playin' the game
I can't take it much longer
I think I might go insane

(Michael):
With such confusions don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusing vicitimize within the scheme
(Janet):
You find your pleasure scandalizin' every lie
(Both):
Oh Father, please have mercy cause I just can't take it

Chorus:
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop pressurin' me
Make me wanna scream
Stop pressurin' me
Just stop pressurin' me
Stop fuckin' with me
Make me wanna scream

(Janet):
Oh my God, can't believe what I saw
As I turned on the TV this evening
I was disgusted by all the injustice
All the injustice
(Michael):
All the injustice

(News Man):
("A man has been brutally beaten to death by Police after being wrongly identified as a robbery suspect. The man was an 18 year old black man..")

(Michael):
With such collusions don't it make you wanna scream
Your bash abusin' victimize within the scheme
(Janet):
You try to cope with every lie they scrutinize
(Both):
Oh brother please have mercy cause I just can't take it

SONGTEKST CHILDWOOD

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for the world that I come from
'Cause I've been looking around
In the lost and found of my heart...
No one understands me
They view it as such strange eccentricities...
'Cause I keep kidding around
Like a child, but pardon me...

People say I'm not okay
'Cause I love such elementary things...
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood
I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like pirates in adventurous dreams,
Of conquest and kings on the throne...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me,
Look within your heart then ask,
Have you seen my Childhood?

People say I'm strange that way
'Cause I love such elementary things,
It's been my fate to compensate,
for the Childhood I've never known...

Have you seen my Childhood?
I'm searching for that wonder in my youth
Like fantastical stories to share
The dreams I would dare, watch me fly...

Before you judge me, try hard to love me.
The painful youth I've had

Have you seen my Childhood...
