Stephen Speelman Big fan of this band. A nice contrast to their last song, "Letter's from the Skipper" - which was awesome in it's own right! This one has a nice rocking edge to it. Great melody and vibe - you'll want to listen over and over!

lyrics

i’m trying to fathom
how we claim to have progressed
become more civil and kind
when rights are stripped from the wronged
proving time and again
that justice is blind

tens, hundreds, or thousands of years
don’t seem to matter that much today
when a man is still measured
and assigned his worth
by the skin in which he is born

i’m trying to relate
in a place i don’t feel a part
more than willing to enact change
- once it appeared so black and white
now I see how totally strange
it all is…

tens, hundreds, or millions of lives
aren’t given their equal say
when a woman is still measured
and assigned her worth
by the skin in which she is born

all these millions and billions of tears
don’t seem to matter that much these days
when we are all still measured
and assigned our worth
by the skin in which we are born

honey-tongued right to your face
and poison behind your back
they’ll do anything to win the race
a bitter pill stuck inside your throat
and bile in your gut
stand your ground or be erased
