nina simone interview

black life it matters here x8

it matters x2
living like humans with dignity matters
living my blackness, with 400 years of resilience, through tragedy matters
building economies matter
leveraging $2 trillion of power it matters
giving our babies new visions of how they can be in this country it matters
telling our stories of glory it matters
mansa musa money minded it matters
making moves to move the movement it matters
building our own institutions it matters
call the gangs to call a truce cause they're killing our soldiers and throwing our troops in a noose, hanging them out like their fruit
so with every ounce of juice in my body i'm screaming
fuck the lies they televise
i've realized, it's a real time to get reacquainted with the 40 million
we're powerful
you're powerful
we ancient
we tribal folk
we been here time to let them know
i bet a bill if we went to south africa they would be scared
building in freedom would honor the dead
i'm nas in belly right now
aint no time to pipe down
been so lost now im found
'til the beast shoots me down
im screaming

black life it matters here x12
