We need to talk about it

Bloodline Maintenance

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 (what) does it say (say) about all of us? (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?
And what does it say about the seller?
And what (what) does it say (say) about all of us? (all of us)

How does a ghost forgive? (we need to talk about it)
How are we supposеd to live? (we need to talk about it)
With 12 million taken
Not onе 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)
About the law and the land (we need to talk about it)
About then
What does it say about now? (we need to talk about slavery)
