Nahko & Medicine For The People - We Shall Overcome




Published on Jun 16, 2016

I created this video because I wanted to share the positive message from Nahko Bear and Medicine for the People.

I do not own any copyrights on the music, and I do not make money from my YouTube video's.

Just trying to make the movement move!


Lyrics:

I'm on the verge of everything
Been lookin to be surrendering so honestly
Tiptoe to the edge of my destiny
Free fall backwards great mystery
Speakin to me, the pain of the youth
The confusion of the people and their struggle for truth
Yeah, regroup and renew
Time to regroup, renew the ambition of a nation
Zombies treadin on decaying foundation
Wasting, creating hostility among us
Turning our back on our mother
We're turning our back on our mother

Look at what we've done
I remember...
I remember...
I forgive
I remember...
I remember...
I remember...
I forgive

These people are relentless, senseless, violent and racist
Providing installation in my day to day, endless
Positivity can definitely be contagious
Persuasive, 'cause I'm speaking my truth
I got my pennies in my pockets, but I'm picking fresh fruits
Yeah, picking fresh fruits
got my pennies in my pockets, but I'm picking fresh fruits
Yeah, whoaoh
'Cause I live in a land of abundance
Where the rain off my roof is sacred and precious
And then we get the work to be found while riding horses (?)
we all must split the courage of we locked to front (?)
Bringin it back to the land when there was food to hunt
And yeah, when there was food to hunt
And yeah, oh 

I got one last thing on my mind
I remember...
I remember...
I forgive 
I remember...
I remember...
I remember...
I forgive 

I'm learning the language of the planet
We inhabit and stab it with 
The chemicals that we practice
And I've had it with habits, it's tragic
This trajectory course that we're on
Separated from the dirt, from ourselves, from the song
Every robot sings, with his hand to his heart:
"I will kill for god, and I will hit my mark
And I will stand, like a fool, for free cuz of the treason"
Nobody's bothering me, but other countries are weeping
Choppin the mountains in half
Can't you hear the earth screamin?
Whoaoh, can't you hear the Earth screamin?
Oh
Blood oil for dinner, better have an appetite 
Yeah, Cuz we rape, pillage and plunder

So you can heat your house tonight
I remember...
I remember...
I forgive 
I remember...
I remember...
I remember...
I forgive 
I'm learning the language of the planet
We inhabit and stab it with 
The chemicals that we practice
And I've had it with habits, it's tragic
This trajectory course that we're on
Separated from the dirt, from ourselves, from the song
Every robot sings, with his hand to his heart:
"I will kill for god, and I will hit my mark
And I will stand, like a fool, for free cuz of the treason"
Nobody's bothering me, but other countries are weeping
Choppin the mountains in half
Can't you hear the earth screamin?
Whoaoh, can't you hear the Earth screamin?
Oh
Blood oil for dinner, better have an appetite 
Yeah, Cuz we rape, pillage and plunder

So you can heat your house tonight
I remember...
I remember...
I forgive 
I remember...
I remember...
I remember...
I forgive 

All my empowered people, put your ones up!
Recognize our tribes are independant and restless
Searching for purpose beneath the rubble and wreckage
The message: Forgiveness starts with me!
Yeah! With me!
Stop blaming other people, take on the responsibility 
Of generations to come
May they live in a world without governments and guns
Without governments and guns
Hey
Whoaoh
Your people who killed my people
My people kill your people 
But our people are all one people
United by compassion for humanity's sake
We wake and meditate on the light of a new day
New chapter in the book of a thousand tongues
Yeah, a thousand tongues 

We shall overcome
I remember...
I remember...
I forgive

Yeah, we shall overcome
(We shall overcome)
Yeah, we shall overcome
(We shall overcome)
I remember, I remember
(We shall overcome)
I remember, I remember
(We shall overcome)
Yeah, we shall overcome
(We shall overcome)
I remember, I remember
(We shall overcome)
Ooo yeah, I forgive
(We shall overcome)
I remember, I remember....
