Lyrics

You wanta get where you’re going, Gotta know where you’ve been
Or you’ll repeat the same mistakes and wind-up right here again
Just fumbling in the dark, without finding a light
to guide you through it

You gotta look for the truth to make things right
In uncomfortable places the truth is the light
Scared of facing the facts, Just fragile and white
What are you gonna do?

CHORUS
Come on get Uncomfortable …. Stop hiding in your privilege
Come and be vulnerable …. Take a long hard look at this scrimmage
In the name of race, There’s been way to much pain
In spite of all that’s been done, The status quo still remains
Quit your running, quit your hiding, Break those cultural chains
Uncomfortable … That’s the way we’ve gotta do it

Verse 2
Don’t know where to start, I’ll tell you one place to look
The Warmth of Other Suns is a real good book
You won’t wanna believe it But you know that you should
Cause a lot of folks know that its true

And if that’s not enough to get you up off your ass
Google “gator bait”, It’ll wake you up fast
The way it is right now Is because of that past
Put your courage on friends…… And let’s get to it
CHORUS
Come on let’s get Uncomfortable …. Stop hiding in our privilege
Come let’s be vulnerable …. Take a long hard look at this scrimmage
In the name of race, There’s been way to much pain
In spite of all that’s been done, The status quo still remains
Quit your running, quit your hiding, Break those cultural chains
Uncomfortable … That’s the way we’ve gotta do it

Bridge
Conversations where you really don’t know what to say,
Just keep on listening, Yea keep on listening
Ask the question what would progress look like today?
Then hear what folks of color say and start witnessing

CHORUS
