Merlina Addams

Oh brother, hmm
It's still a mystery, yeah
Will you hear my cry?
Won't you hear my plea, oh?
'Cause I'll never know (I'll never know)
How it feels (how it feels)
How it feels (how it feels)
Oh, how it feels (how it feels)
To be
To be
Free
People swear they won't but they're walking in their sleep
I pray the Lord their souls to keep
Because wolves disguised as sheep patrol our streets
And we all know that what you sow, you shall reap
Those who do know, you should teach
Through every loophole, we gon' leap until you reach
A common ground and become unbound
Because when your whole town becomes a battle ground
Tears weighing down
Because it ain't fair
It's hard when you're looking for love
And it ain't there
Or try to read what tomorrow holds
When it ain't clear
Because the well is running dry
Racial tensions running high
Under 21 is far too young to die
My salvation's under fire
This marks a rising of the tide
Everyday I wear a mask like an umpire
Yes, a nigga gotta laugh to keep from crying
Tonight another friend passed on the young side
It's bad 'cause a good friend's hard to come by
Justice is never color blind, never gun shy
The one crime, you may never see the sun shine
We know of one times, giving you the finger
Round hearing me, fuck you, it's not the number one sign
I hear they turning downtown to the front line
It's something like the same place but it ain't safe
They took it from the human race to a tank chase
The Devil feeding off hate so he gain weight
There's tainted waters in the well, so we can't taste
People dazed and amazed though it ain't grace
Impossible to co-exist in the same space
Enter the black saint with the war paint face
This generation, we've forsaken all that's real
What emotions do we feel?
Is your poison called a pistol or a pill?
Some people say, "Let Jesus take the wheel"
Others say, "Thou shall not kill"
But they don't tell me that you ain't gon' pay my bills
We've come so far yet here we are
Ruthless God, presumed inferior
We ain't scared of y'all
It ain't fair
It's hard when you're looking for love
And it ain't there
Or try to read what tomorrow holds
When it ain't clear
Because the well is running dry
Racial tensions running high
Under 21 is far too young to die
My salvation's under fire
Rising, and rising ride
Arab, Israeli, Native American Mexicans
Invested in wrestling with Willy Lynch's next to kin
The rising of the tide, noose around the necks again
Look at how they try to hide proof of all inexcellence
The only tag you know me as is Holy Swag
Through any glass window, we smash, and bro we back
It's coming fast, I'm unabashed, so we have
An awareness of the only flag that's growing fast
I guess I'm tryna minimize arrests, I identify with death
That don't mean it's not an uninvited guest
I'm just tryna answer all of my requests
And express in 140 characters or less
Why I'm the best educator, re-legislated, premeditated
Dedicated, heavy weight that ever paid it with blood
Not tuition without a cop's permission
I got a pot to piss in despite the opposition, listen
Oh, it ain't fair
It's hard when you're looking for love
But it ain't there
Try to read what tomorrow holds
And it ain't clear
Because the well is running dry
And it ain't fair
No, it ain't there
No, it ain't fair
Looking for justice and it's just us
It ain't fair
There's a riot going on out there
And it ain't fair
When your protector is your predator
It ain't fair
No, it ain't fair
No, it ain't fair
Y'all just gon' turn the other way
No, it ain't fair
Turn a bloody cheek on these bloody streets
It ain't fair
It ain't fair
It ain't fair
No, it ain't fair
No, no
No, no
No, no
No, no

No hate on this version...but the NPR version is absolute 🔥!!!! Especially Bilal and and Black Thought !!!

MeMyddleton Show

@Daniel Kavuu thank you for sharing the link.

PULSE Music

Totally agree. I got to NPR Version everytime! Live is always better!

Sam Gibson

Damn right. So damned good!

Daniel Kavuu

@Elliott Gibson Jr. that’s actually the point. Questlove did an episode on the song exploder podcast where he talks about this song and how they purposely wanted it to sound like it was performed by amateurs and not world class musicians to fit the film it was made for. I’d recommend checking out the episode if you’re interested in learning more about the song: https://songexploder.net/the-roots

Matt Busby

Black Thought sounds live whether it’s live or engineered

I know it maybe a little premature to say, but this song needs to possibly get an Oscar nomination.

ibieiniid

@Paul Glover
nah Oscars does movie music.

Paul Glover

Do you mean Grammy?

Gloria Delicioso

@SnubDa Nub perfect "turn of phrase"
Dylan knows all about that too! This is a masterpiece
