about

We. Shall. Overcome.

lyrics

We shall, overcome yeah
We shall… overcome

We shall, overcome yeah
We shall… overcome

If these feet could tell you what they’ve seen
Pain you’ve only seen in your daydreams
hurt you’ve only felt from 10 mile hikes
Strain from sprinting for my life
Cuz ain’t this much marching In the world
Marches ain’t save those four little girls
Martin walked so that Barack could fly
But Martin got plucked right out the sky
I prayed and begged asked my father why
While tears grew legs and they ran down my eyes
Like Tommie Smith and John Carlos
We stand on the shoulders of all those
Soldiers from AZ to chicago
Yall know we done begged stole and borrowed
Waiting for representatives to reps us
Or for respect from those who dont respect us
Guess what


We shall, overcome yeah
We shall… overcome

We shall, overcome yeah
We shall… overcome


Non violent protests - so over them
Feet so swollen how I’m sposed to run
Wondering when will my moment come
I was told that I’m the chosen one
Chosen to be poor and have less?
Chosen to be denied the access?
Chosen for migraines from mad stress?
Well I choose joy, and how could you have guessed
That a man on a mission like Mabel and Oscar
Chose love as the weapon for slaying a monster
Through the hardships you can pray that we prosper..
Or we can tap in, make something happen
good trouble, word to John Lewis
We don’t start problems, we respond to it
So I pray we might, Soar to greater heights
And we can if stay the fight
We shall



We shall, overcome yeah
We shall… overcome

We shall, overcome yeah
We shall… overcome


Heavenly Father
I approach Your space,
Weighed down but I know that I can hold those weights
When I pray, I state
Every one of my struggle and You follow with strength
Even in this dark tunnel, I can find an escape
There are times when I may not even know what to say
I trust that You’ll guide me and show me the way
Because I know that my enemy is hoping I break
But they don’t know my faith
My Savior had skin like bronze and a heart full of gold
And He gave it all, so I could shine bright like platinum
And it’s not about me, I’m just made in His image
So I take it all, and I just shine it right back at Him
That’s my Heavenly Father, and my Dad would be proud
I found joy, love and freedom like Mrs. Tabitha Brown
I give hope to the ones who had it stolen away
It once was lost, but lyrically I put it to sound
And we shall
