Lyrics

At the river
Where the water´s red
They gave us different names
To justify the ownership

Rules are still the same
Chances we don’t get
Still we´re showing love
To everyone that shows respect

At the river
Is where they used to trade
Our ancestors
How can we not relate

The story goes so deep
Not looking for revenge
Looking for solutions
Till the day we´ll smile again

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about them good ol’ ways and who shall wear the robe and crown
Good lord show me the way
Ooooh Brothers
Let’s go down
Ooohhh Sisters
Let’s go down
Oooohhhh sinners let’s go
Down
Down in the the river to pray

At the river
Nothings gonna be the same
You took us away
But karma has a different game plan

Yeah
Till this day we’re having slaves man
You don’t see it in the news
But it happens everyday man

At the river
Expose so we can change
No more others you should blame
That’s the price you gotta pay for peace
Nothings gonna be the same
Because history is made
But black people still ain’t safe

As I went down in the river to pray
Studying about them good ol’ ways and who shall wear the robe and crown
Good lord show me the way
Ooooh Brothers
Let’s go down
Ooohhh Sisters
Let’s go down
Oooohhhh sinners let’s go
Down
Down in the the river to pray

Too many of my people tired
10 million souls but you can never handle 45
Martin Luther had a dream and died
300 years after the very first boats arrived
Too many people asking why
Oppression is the reason you see pain
Inna Black Mans eye.
Too many of my people died story goes so deep
That you can never ever close your eyes
They never called it Genocide
Even when they learned about equality and humans’ rights
They even planned to justify
2020 is the outcome cuz we‘ve stayed
Too quiet

The energy might shiver
But positivity is what we need more than ever never
Story’s Must be remembered
The truth is we’re stronger and better
Together
