Liberamente ispirata da una frase di Martin Luther King

quote1
Backbiters and haters talk behind my back 
And you sit there while they attack 
Maybe you agre/or don't know what to do, 
But when your back is turned they’ll talk the same about you 

I like it when people can get along, 
Like understanding words to a song 
When you know the truth you can’t pretend 
I don’t like the silence of my friends 

You talk about women like pieces of meat 
You think I should laugh but I can’t agree 
Wait a minute brother don’t go no further 
What if I said that about your mother? 

I like it when people can get along 
Like understanding words to my song 
When you know the truth you can’t pretend 
I don’t like the silence of my friends. 

Don’t sit and act like you don’t know 
Your silence helps evil grow 
You kill evil at the root 
‘Cause people will do what you let ‘em do 

They say all lives matter between me and you 
But when look closely it don’t seem true 
So we protest to say what’s on our minds 
While you sit there quiet on the sideline 

I like it when people can get along 
Like understanding words to my song 
When you know the truth and can’t pretend 
I don't like the silence of my friends 

I don’t like the silence of my friends 
I don’t like the silence of my friends 
I don’t like the silence of my friends 
If you say you’re my friend you better speak up right now

Quando ho letto il nome di Toronzo Cannon ho pensato a un chitarrista blues del delta del Po, tra Goro e Porto Tolle... immaginate la delusione di scoprire che è un nero di Chicago...
