Exhibit Diaz
Ibeyi Lyrics


It's frustrating when you just can't express yourself
And it's hard to trust enough to undress yourself
To stand exposed and naked in a world full of hatred
Where the sick thoughts of mankind control all the sacred

I pause, take a step back, record all the set backs
Fast forward towards the stars and the jetpack
My feet might fail me, my heart might ail me
The synagogues of Satan might accuse or jail me
I've got something to say, oh eyo
Yesterday is gone, tomorrow's on the way

That name on that birth certificate, that ain't the real me
That ain't the real me, the lies can't conceal me
The sunrise and the moon tides and the skies gonna reveal me
My brain pours water on my tear ducts to heal me

I've got something to say, oh eyo
Yesterday is gone, tomorrow's on the way

The message grab ahold to every ears it get whispered in
The waters in the bayous of New Orleans still glistening, yeah
The universe is listening, be careful what you say in it
My grandma told me every bed a nigger make, he lay in it

I've got something to say, oh eyo
Yesterday is gone, tomorrow's on the way

The church you pray in it, the work is on the outside
Staring out the windows, it's for love songs and house flies

I've got something to say, oh eyo
Yesterday is gone, tomorrow's on the way

I've got something to say, oh eyo
Yesterday is gone, tomorrow's on the way

It's frustratin' when you just can't express yourself
And it's hard to trust enough to undress yourself
To stand exposed and naked, in a world full of hatred
Where the sick thoughts of mankind control all the sacred
I pause, take a step back, record all the setbacks
Fast forward towards the stars in a jetpack
My feet might fail me, my heart might ail me
The synagogues of Satan might accuse or jail me
Strip, crown, nail me, brimstone hail me
They might defeat the flesh but they could never ever kill me
They might can feel the music but could never ever feel me
To the lawyers, to the sheriffs, to the judges
To the debt holders and the law makers
Fuck you, sue me, bill me
That name on that birth certificate, that ain't the real me
The lies can't conceal me
The sun rise and the moon tides and the sky's gon' reveal me
My brain pours water out my tear ducts to heal me
My Lord's too beneficent
The message grab a hold to every ear it get whispered in
The waters in the bayous of New Orleans still glistenin'
The universe is listenin', be careful what you say in it
My grandma told me every bed a nigga make, he lay in it
The church you go to pray in it, the work is on the outside
Staring out the windows is for love songs and house flies

I've got somethin' to say
I, I've got somethin' to say

Yesterday, yesterday is gone
Tomorrow, tomorrow is on the way
You don't have time to waste
Gotta get it right

Yesterday, yesterday is gone
Tomorrow, tomorrow is on the way
You don't have time to waste
Gotta get it right

Yesterday, yesterday is gone
Tomorrow, tomorrow is on the way

Hi ladies, absolutely love what you did here. I'm curious if this particular version is available for download? I realize you have the "Exhibit Diaz" studio version available, but in my humble opinion, this is the better of the two. I'll look forward to one day being able to legally download (and gladly pay for!) and enjoy this song. Thank you.

This is just so authentic. Their ability to be vulnerable in their music is something so beautiful. We need music to make us feel this connected to the earth that we have

Ivanise Rodrigues

Their music gives me the same kind of vibe I get from listening to Sade. So smooth...... so soothing. Love it!

Romie Redd

I love your music so much ... Sometimes I can close my eyes and almost feel like I'm back in Cuba ... Its an amazing feeling what your voices can do !

I saw Ibeyi live in Paris in october 2015 and at the end of the concert I was thinking that I just had the chance to see new future international stars at a level of Bob Marley, Mickael Jackson, Prince, James Brown standing.
