Story behind the song
This song is the story of our times. We, as a people, must confront our demons and do whatever we can to bring an end to the nightmare of inequality, hatred, injustice, lies... This song was sparked into existence by the same forces which sparked people all over the world to begin the process of change via protest.
Lyrics
Burn It Down 2020 Reggie Miles All rights reserved We heard his last words, I can't breathe A knee on his neck caused the world to grieve Everyone watched the latest blue snuff show White hate unchained via viral video And people cried out in every town Burn it down, burn it down They shouted from the streets No justice, no peace Burn it down, burn it down And people began to chant and march They stood united from morning till dark In cities and parks they made their stand Their truth was heard through this land Burn it down burn it down People cried out in every city and town Bury racial hatred six feet underground Burn it down burn it down Murdered in the street Right before our eyes Defund the police Is our battle cry break Segregation hate Endless oppression This is not our fate End all this aggression Burn it down burn it down People cried out in every city and town Bury racial hatred six feet underground Burn it down burn it down We're waging war against inequality In a desperate fight to be free After hundreds of years and an ocean of tears To build a better life for you and me Being terrorized Evry single day Injustice hate & lies Have got to end today Burn it down burn it down People cried out in every city and town Bury racial hatred six feet underground Burn it down burn it down Burn it down, burn it down
