lyrics

I dressed myself in black today
Without thinking why
Too many people who I love
Are watching people they love die
And every step they take
It feels so wrong wrong wrong
They’re almost gone

Everybody get together and we’re strong
Everybody get together and we’re strong
Everybody get together
We will always do it better
When we’re moving all together
Pushing on
Everybody we are strong


Every day in this America
Another Black life is wiped out
At the hands of a policeman
Who thinks he knows without a doubt
That every breath they took
Well it was wrong, wrong, wrong
And now they’re gone

Everybody get together and we’re strong
Everybody get together and we’re strong
Everybody get together
We will always do it better
When we’re moving all together
Pushing on
Everybody we are strong

Oh the dead, make no noises
Yes, the dead they make no sound
But the living left behind them
Rend and thrash the air around
For all the cries we make
Oh death is long long long
And they’re still gone

Everybody get together and we’re strong
Everybody get together and we’re strong
Everybody get together
We will always do it better
When we’re moving all together
Pushing on
Everybody we are strong
