Say their names, sing their songs

lyrics

My body a weapon
Battleground of a nation
To bend a knee in submission
Or be the fist of resistance

How could a man bring so much hate
Into a house of love?
Leave so much pain behind
A congregation to be left
In a wake
To look into the void and wonder
How this began
A family dismantled;
Overcome!
We come together
We sing as one
Rise up and say their names

A warm rain
Raps on cold shallow graves
Solemn tongues
Will utter their names

South Carolina, Goddamn!

My brothers
My sisters
My family
My friends
In darkness, we see the light
