lyrics

I see how history has slapped you in the face
I see a trail of tears that no time can erase
I feel the burning chains
I hear the cries of pain
Is there a chance that all the suffering was in vain?
What silver lining can we see
When we go up the family tree
Too many sowed the seeds and never owned the grain

I’m not smoking no calumet
Until these talking heads all hang in shame
My rage is all they’ll ever get
Until they take a little of the blame
The slate cannot go back to blank
The bloody stains are here to stay
The people’s court played one big prank
Some colors never even had their day
It’s now my duty to be frank
And start singing the hate away


I see how vanity has looked down on your race
How it was blind to all its beauty and its grace
I see your empty hands
The broken lives to mend
You were pushed to build your castle out of sand
What silver lining can we see
When we go down the family tree
Too many plowed the fields and never owned the land

I’m not smoking no calumet…

The burning chains
The cries of pain
The trail of tears
The darkest fears
Your empty hands
The lives to mend
The bloody stains
The stolen grain
The stolen land
