about

I wrote & recorded this song as a reaction to what happened in Ferguson & with Eric Garner. Social injustice is a deep issue that can not be ignored. We need to react, take action and help end violence of all kind. Instead of given me money for this song, I would like for you to donate to the following charities of your choice:

ERIC GARNER FAMILY (fundly.com/eric-garner-family-support-fund)
FOR THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN TO PROTECT US (tunnel2towers.org)
THE COALITION TO STOP GUN VIOLENCE (csgv.org)

Thank you.

War Is Over If You Want It!

lyrics

Our Weary Feat.

Where are you going?
Where is your gun?
Don't you know that it's a race?

When you walk around and you're feeling down
and you stop for a drink,
you sit and wonder why this officer will
tell you what to think.

Where are you going?
Where is your gun?
Don't you know that it's a race?

When you're on the streets and the city's fine
and the darkness starts to creep,
I hope you understand what I need to do
'cause you don't look like me.

Where are you going?
Where is your gun?
Don't you know that it's a race?

When you point a finger at the common man
and blame entitlement,
do you feel the same with your corporate stamps
that bails out all you spent?

Where are you going?
Where is your gun?
Don't you know that it's a race?

When you lie down and fall asleep what
dreams do you see -
the riches that you gained from your trust fund drain
or the end to poverty?

Where are you going?
Where is your gun?
Don't you know that it's a race?

When you sell peace on a borrowed lease
then deny an Other's loan,
green is the shade that keeps you color blind
except with opaque tones.

Where are you going?
Where is your gun?
Don't you know that it's a race?
