SONG FOR JUSTICE

I Cant Breathe is the powerful combined effort of award winning music collaborators Jettison Bloom and Eldraco Price. A poignant song written in response to the murder of George Floyd and so many other men and women of color; in a nation deemed the land of the free there is a entire community of people marginalized and suffocating under oppression and racism. We Cannot Breathe.

VERSE: Threw my hands up to the sky Drop to my knees don’t wanna die Heed direction, I complied You’re crushing me please tell me why? You prostate my body so? Cleave my neck and won’t let go? Mindful evil takes its toll But you care not for my soul CHORUS: You won’t Let me be Can’t you Try to see In the land of the free In this land of the free I can’t breathe Bring me to me feet You are Killing me In the land of the free In the land of the free I can’t breathe VERSE: Onyx fractals buried in Black pavement rapes my skin Stench of bile start to blend As I lay chained down by him Fodder dusted in the wind Just wanna make it home again To my loved ones and my friends Don’t let this asphalt be the end CHORUS: You won’t Let me be Can’t you Try to see In the land of the free In this land of the free I can’t breathe Bring me to me feet You are Killing me In the land of the free In the land of the free I can’t breathe BRIDGE: Systematic Demonizing Automatic Race profiling Bureaucratic Ostracizing Suffocating All for nothing CHORUS: You won’t Let me be Can’t you Try to see In the land of the free In this land of the free I can’t breathe Bring me to me feet (Automatic Demonizing) You are Killing me (Systematic Race Profiling) In the land of the free (Bureaucratic Ostracizing) In the land of the free (Suffocating all for nothing) I can’t breath
