Moonlight Moonshine

(Praveen Vava)

This song tries to capture the injustice and the tortures faced by the slaves, attempting to get the story of capture, transport, work and survival, and ends with how their posterity should deal with it.

Moonlight moonshine Moonlighting for moonshine All that moonshine after the moonshine makes sense to but the man Who for the day served his time. Black dark Just as god made first Never stayed in the shade or cold How that's become a curse Sugar cotton No better than salt or gold Captured degraded ascribed to another Families uprooted families torn Infirm killed, villages left to burn. Transported in a boat In cabins filled like meat Lying in their own piss Lying in their own vomit Oh the smell of the sea Oh the smell of sweat and shit. Black dark Just as god made first Never stayed in the shade or cold How that's become a curse Made to work Made to toil Their sweat, blood nourishment for the crop How could they ever feel like sons-of-the-soil Oppressed repressed suppressed Denied progress Nature could never treat this bad Modern the new name for regress Black dark Just as god made first Never stayed in the shade or cold How that's become a curse Whipping lashing Hotbox hanging Mutilation branding Burning Dragging Whipped for work Whipped for fun Raped in moonlight Raped in the sun Stripped for being human Stripped for hate Flogged for no reason Castrated so they couldn’t mate Left is a body hollow, a quiet mind That hums not a paean but A requiem for freedom A requiem for the humane kind Black dark Just as god made first XXXXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX X XXXXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXX XXX XXXXX XX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX XXX XXXXX XX XXX XXXXX X XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXX X XXXX XXX XXXX XXXXXXXX X XXXX XXX XX XXX XXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXX XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXXXXXX XX XXXXXX XXX XXXX XXXXX X XXXXX XXXX XXXXXX XXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXX XXX X XXXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX XX XXXX XXXX XXX XXX XX XXXX XXXXX XXXX XXXX XX XXX XXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXX XX XXX XXXXX XX XXXX XXX XXXXXX XXXXXX X XXXXX
