Stop The Bleeding

Album: Civil Unrest (2020)

  • The endless scroll of human tragedy
    I swipe along as the days go by
    Another brother murdered out in the streets
    I connect to the shame, we don’t know what it’s like
    Born lucky cause the color of skin
    America your heart is caving in
    Somehow I thought this was the land of the free
    Where is our humanity?
    Our humanity

    Beating after beating
    Throat choked under knee
    Help me please
    Because I can’t breathe
    Just stop the bleeding
    Body after body
    Piled up in the streets
    Stand and fight
    Not another life
    Just stop the bleeding

    And some will claim it’s a conspiracy
    The fake news out to undermine
    When riots fight off white supremacy
    Never given a choice, so they’re drawing a line
    I stare and look out at the world in disgust
    These men are dying over nothing just
    Good men stand up and show your bravery
    For a lost democracy
    Our democracy

    Beating after beating
    Throat choked under knee
    Help me please
    Because I can’t breathe
    Just stop the bleeding
    Body after body
    Piled up in the streets
    Stand and fight
    Not another life
    Just stop the bleeding

    Our strife
    Our struggle
    Fight through these open wounds

    Beating after beating
    Throat choked under knee

    Beating after beating
    Throat choked under knee
    Help me please
    Because I can’t breathe
    Just stop the bleeding
    Body after body
    Piled up in the streets
    Stand and fight
    Not another life
    Just stop the bleeding now
    The bleeding now!

    Our strife
    Our struggle
    Fight through these open wounds Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
