“We knew what the verdict was long before they read it.
Yea, we knew what the verdict was long before they said it.
They say they set us free some 100 years ago
But we know that was some politics, that it was all a show.
Cause 100 years later and they still can shoot us down
Yep,100 years later and we are lying on the ground.
100 years later and its still a curse to be born black
Unless you play like Tiger, like Michael or like Shaq.
We can get degrees, we can try to build our lives
But in the end its, 10 shots down and our souls floating to the skies.
Hear my cry oh Lord I pray and give justice to the slaves,
Our ancestors are screaming Lord, they are shaking in their graves.
Justice, justice, justice Lord, that is our only plea
Help us get it here on earth, while we wait for thee.
Help us to stop fighting, the divided can’t be strong
Help us to show our accusers that they are indeed wrong.
Change their hearts and change ours too we want to be united
But when things like this go on, violence is in-sighted.
Mend the broken cords oh lord, heal our broken lands
Place us back together God, put us in your hands.
Black and white and rich and poor, yellow red or blue
Help us to understand your love so that we can show love too.
It is so hard O Lord you know, the pain we feel tonight.
Hear our cries as you did Israel, for #ferguson we fight!
#Handsupdontshoot thats all we ask, yet we won’t back away
We’re going to fix this racial war, it has to end today!
For our future and our families, so that his death was not in vain
We’ve got to end the violence now, and do it in his name;
#MiKEBROWN.” #wearehumanstoo #justice #fergusonmissouri
