"The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible" - Toni Cade Bambara

Since the pandemic hit, my emotions have ebbed and flowed each day. I've only written three songs in the past six months but as soon as I finished this one, I knew that I needed to record it live and release it into the world. Piano was my second instrument and I've gotten to play it much more during lockdown. It feels like saying hello to an old friend. I practiced hard and went into Flat Black Studios in July and tracked this live. You can watch the live performance video on YouTube at youtu.be/AuC-cngb79Q

lyrics

How many more black people have to die?
Before white people learn they have to do more than cry
We're running out of time
Big money won't let us decarbonize

Please expose them they've hid it far too long
Join me, singing truth in song

I'm sick of all the guys in their suits and their ties
Filling us with lies to protect their bottom lines
Don't say too much 'cause it shows they're out of touch
So unjust to sit around while more people die

How many more trans people have to lie?
Because their medical care keeps being denied
Land of the free yet so many die
Just trying to be what's inside
