A Message 01:46
Wake to the alarm clock Another black man shot 7 times into the back Paralyzed in an instant By the cops When will this all stop Why is love not taught Hate is trending and I don't see it ending After that ball drops The Circle of oppression keeps stretching thats why I say we need evolution Grow above and beyond the pain not disband entire institutions Thats why its called revolution Cuz we just keep on looping Over and over and over ending up with the same solutions It's not conclusive but I found a different answer Something exclusive something that proves that everyone's life can matter Enough with the chatter the bias the bigoted bullshit Im gonna be blunt Its LOVE Thats it And thats enough So... Stop being bad people Nothings all good when youre a tad evil Start being more peaceful Follow your heart away from what's deceitful And thats the message and I'm sticking to it The choice is yours if you listen to it I aint here to hold your hand or make a stand I just gotta do it I'm looking for peace inside a battlefield I'm looking for love inside a wild fire I'm looking for sun through all the rain clouds But the oceans of hate just grow higher


With everything going on in the world today, this song is my message to you. Usually we dont just release songs without notice or context, but this one couldn't wait. The song is free, but donations are welcome.
