1. Better Way

Black child cries, While her daddy bleeds and dies
When bullets fly, From a lawman’s gun
for the color of his skin he was condemned
Fear was the jury and the judge

How I feel for tomorrow, I fall on my knees and pray
Lord heal this pain, this sorrow, show us the way
A better way, there must be a better way

On a Dallas street, lay five police, who will never see another day
Some say revenge is right, but it won’t bring back no life, and anger burns the heart away


I realize, I’m looking through a white man’s eyes, but I see the lies, and I feel pain
I cry for you, cause you’re my brother too
Together we can find a better way
