Lyrics

Didn’t ask you for much
Just to take care of me
I gave you the Rains
I gave you the Sea
Your brother was the Wolf
Your sister the Tree
Now in your hour of need
You have forsaken me
 
My skin is burning
And your hands are red
Little voices echo in my head
I can’t breathe, your knee is on my neck
When will you come back to me?
 
Instructions I gave
Passed down through the ages
White man he came
Let his pain turn to hate
Divisions the device
Used to separate
Black Lives Matter
Decolonize your mind
You don’t own anything
Learn to let go
 
My skin is burning
And your hands are red
Little voices echo in my head
I can’t breathe, your knee is on my neck
I can’t breathe, your knee is on my neck
Your knee is on my neck
I can’t breathe
When will you come back to me
 
It’s time to wake up
From your self induced sleep
Question everything and your complicity
Remember your way back to imagined dreams

Slow down so we can sync our heartbeat
