Ben Harper – We Need To Talk About It Lyrics


Slavery

We need to talk about it

(We need to talk about it)

I say Black Lives Matter

‘Cause history says we don’t

You’re either a Christian or a racist

You can’t be both

Slavery

We need to talk about it

(We need to talk about it)

What does it say about America?

What does it say about Africa?

And what does it say about all of us?

Whoever said time heals all wounds

Wasn’t a slave, I’m guessing

(I’m guessing)

Hundreds of years

That’s just too long of a lesson

(We need to talk about it)

What does it say about the buyer?

What does it say about the seller?


And what does it say about all of us?

How does a ghost forgive?

(We need to talk about it)

How are we supposed to live?

(How, how, tell me how)

(We need to talk about it)

With 12 million taken

Not one single reparation

(We need to talk about slavery)

What does it say about forgiveness?

(We need to talk about it)

What does it say about compassion?

(We need to talk about slavery)

About justice

And about fairness

(We need to talk about slavery)

And about the law and the land

(We need to talk about it)

And about then

What does it say about now?

(We need to talk about slavery)
