Speak Up My Brother

(Praveen Vava)

This song tries to capture the iniquities faced by the minority race despite being born with same rights in the same land. The need to fight this bigotry and overcome the base instinct of racial prejudice.

Race race race, Breathing down my neck Run faster run harder, Race won't stop the chase Racy smile, Voice such a delight If she cross to the other side, Race'll skin our hide Speak up my brother, speak up before time Speak your peace, dignity and freedom ain't no crime. Speak up my brother, speak up before time Speak your peace, dignity and freedom ain't no crime. Glass ceiling, shut window, high fences hard floor, Race the another name for keys to the door. You made all that the dough you show all that gold Staying quiet not fighting the good fight You're just another can kicked down the road. Speak up my brother, speak up before time Speak your peace, dignity and freedom ain't no crime. Speak up my brother, speak up before time Speak your peace, dignity and freedom ain't no crime. Eating the same food Cooking the same dish Can't share a laugh Can't share a table Race in harmony a forlorn wish Fearing change, fence the home range Split the race and unite the same Load the gun take aim Shoot whoever feels unlike Shoot whoever looks not akin Race makes blind, fucking with your psyche The greed that sees only the colour of the skin. Myopic in its vision Race in such a short time Feels it owns, feels it's blessed Race one's sublime and every other's slime Speak up my brother, speak up before time Speak your peace, dignity and freedom ain't no crime.

Trust You

By Maya Barnes


This is a song about trust and love and how they go hand in hand. The speaker of this song is doubtful in love, she needs assurance in order to open up and let what she thinks is happening happen. She doesn't need more heartbreak at this point in her life. So she's being real and asking the necessary and deep questions of love in the attempt to warn him off if he isn't the type that she is.
