lyrics

Spirits are low and just getting by
Bereft and unsettled and a little bit high
Injustice of death - forgotten or worse
Blamed for abuses, neglected since birth

What’s it matter anyway?
These streets are filled with ghosts
But all you see are spooks

Sickle to prison - a life among cells
Derision for victims “unfit and unwell”
Ignored by physicians - reviled by the state
Dying in labor from a life filled with hate

This is one way that racism kills
Biased doctors pushing sugar pills
Assume we’re addicts and we’re just seeking meds
Or supernatural - no pain till we’re dead
Black women giving us life
Are more likely to die under the knife
Our ghosts are lingering demanding the truth
But you ain’t listening - you hear nothing but spooks
