Dedicated to George Floyd and all victims of brutality in hope that we may yet find our way to a more just and less cruel world shared in our walk of humanity. Marvin Gaye would probably be rolling over in his grave in the scorching war of Antifa and other radicals going on when we should be embraced in our common bonds over an unjustified homicide that has happened.
We need to find better answers, not more loss and death and hurt that painfully leaves its scars on the streets and souls of America. (Yes it does sound a bit better with my guitar in the background.. but this is what I have to share, I hope it will be forgiven.)
21 Century Goings On by Michael Doyle Brother, brother, brother You say you're tired of dying Mother, mother, mother I hear you sadly sighing Grown so weary from despair Certain that the world is uncaring Father, father, father Dr. King was certainly right When he said we'd get no farther If we never see the light Rioting is not a good answer Lawlessness eats away like cancer You see, only love can conquer hate I swear that it's not too late Together we can find a better way To bring more love to our day We need to rid the world of its brutality Talk to me in terms of our humanity Tell me now, what's going on Do you think this is really being strong For God's sake, what's going on Put down your rage and brick We both know it won't do the trick Let's walk together in the light Together we can make things just and right Brother, brother, brother We all know hate is wrong Locking arm in arm with each other It's only just that we all belong And you know have to find our way To find some understanding here today Burning down the streets of our city Only brings to us all more brutality Come on and talk your truth to me Tell me you can see our shared humanity Please dear God tell me what's going on We got to be strong, tell me now... …What's going on?
