Wait For It (Song, 2016)

Wrists – back / body – black
Blood – red / fear dries tears /
Hands – whip / hearts – trip
Troubled – souls / lash for fear

Wait for it, hang in there
Like a fruit, strapped in fear
Wait for it, hanging there
Backlash, we’re still here…
We’re still here…

Whip away the tears, they
Whip away the tears
Blood sweat, back wet
Now we’re mad, everybody
Whip away the tears, they
Whip away the tears
Blood sweat, back wet
Now we’re mad, everybody mad

His-story, your story, or mine
I don’t know if they don’t care
But I’m mighty, I am fine…

Would the sugar we eat
come from a place where we can’t breathe?
If we’d go back in time, vibrate high?
A soul flies, high
From his-to-ry, my oh my

Wrists – back / body – black
Blood – red / fear dries tears /
Hands – whip / hearts – trip
Troubled – souls / lash for fear

Whip away the tears, they
Whip away the tears
Blood sweat, back wet
Now we’re mad, everybody
Whip away the tears, they
Whip away the tears
Blood sweat, back wet
Now we’re mad, everybody mad

Do you feel free? Or outlawed
Do you feel me? Oh, Lord…
Race is not about color, can’t you see?
Can’t we dance, ‘till blue turns indigo, maybe?
Who are ‘they’? Who are ‘we’?
Who am I, does skin define me?
I think we are perfectly imperfect and divine

Wrists – back / body – black
Blood – red / fear dries tears /
Hands – whip / hearts – trip
Troubled – souls / lash for fear

Whip away the tears, they
Whip away the tears
Blood sweat, back wet
Now we’re mad, everybody
Whip away the tears, they
Whip away the tears
Blood sweat, back wet
Now we’re mad, everybody mad

[Outro Spoken Word]
Who am I if I am just a fruit on a tree?
Can I be reaped? Will I be raped? Do you see?
They made one dear to thee your harmful enemy
Ready to make you bleed…
Wait for it, I still breathe
Like a fruit…
On a tree
