about

I'm tired of waiting to feel equal, to feel seen, to feel heard, to feel justice, to feel peace in a society that rationalizes my feelings away. I see the names in the video, I heard their cries, I pray for their justice, and I pray for their peace.

lyrics

My skin is broken, my heart is bleeding
How long will it take, for you to believe it?
Tell me is it real?
They keep on trying to tear us down
You ask me how’s it feeling?
I feel like burning down and I’ve been here before
Did you notice it before?
You had your chance

How long will it take?
How long?

Ok ok ok, oh me oh my
If they kill me, when they kill me
Don’t hide, don’t close your eyes
And when we die
We multiply
You just divide
You had your chance

How long will it take?
How long will it take?
How long will it take?
How long will it take?
  
My spirit’s broken
My people bleeding
How long will it take
For you to see it?
For you to see?
