A Prayer To Whoever's Listening (ft. Cherno Biko)

the problem is that we all think we know just what the problem is

if you go and look for answers, the first thing you find’s bound to look like it

and eli, eli i wish for once

that you could just exist

right now i don’t think i believe in much of anything

there we were waiting for the rain to come, but none of us could see that we were the rain

 

and i was choking back my tears in hopes that nobody would see that i was crying

while you were watching all that spectacle you didn’t notice people dying

and i pray st. audre lorde

that your words won’t be ignored

there’s barely room upon this altar

for the names of all the martyred

there we were waiting for the rain to come, but none of us could see that we were the rain

 

it was the summer of my discontent

and i don’t know where it went

it’s just it was the first year that i didn’t see the mountains

and i’d like to think that in the end

we did more than just pretend

but all those things we did, well i have my doubts about them

there we were waiting for the rain to come, but none of us could see that we were the rain
