Lyrics :
IN THE CITY :

Themes: social unrest – racism – police brutality – BLM – social injustice

Somethin’s going on in the city.
What’s going on?
Take to the street and hear the pavement roar
In a fraction, a reaction, this is the spark.
The divide, that we deny, is tearing us apart.
Now the people asking.
What’s going on?
How did we get here and where did we go wrong?
These lines, they reach so high, they block out the sky.
But it’s on the ground that we all stare now.

We’re just trying to survive, in the city.
Can’t we live?
We’re just trying to get by.

Somethin’s going on in the city
What’s going wrong?
People in the street to make that pavement roar
A reaction, to a bullet, when will this stop?
The divide, that we denied, it comes from the heart
Beneath these steady brown eyes are tears that never can dry.
And this ain’t no resolution now.
Is there no hope?
There is no rest.
From these tears comes this misery.

We’re just trying to survive in the city.
Can’t we live?
We’re just trying to get by.
Can’t we live or must we die?

The tv shows the confusion, this peace was just an illusion.
A sick truth we were too sick to see.
Another mother is crying.
Another black body dying.
And the people see the stain.
In the city.
How much longer till we get the truth?
How much longer shall we fight for a change?
I keep asking, don’t silence me now.
Cause we will strive on.

We’re just trying to survive, in the city.
Can’t we live?
But my skin won’t let me live, oh no.
Can’t we live or must we die?
We’re just trying to get by.

I’mma gonna keep asking, when will my brother be free?
I’mma gonna keep asking, when will my sister feel free?
I’mma gonna keep asking.
