about

This song was written following the death of George Floyd. It captures the myriad of emotions during the chaotic time of hate, fear, racism, and violence. It gives a voice to the victims whose lives were stolen from them. It commemorates and honors their lives, and sheds light on the sad truth of systematic racism, police brutality, and injustice. It was written to give people the courage to stand up and fight for equality.

lyrics

“Say Their Names”
Kevin Rogers

Say Their Names, Say Their Names
Say Their Names
Say Their Names

Knee to his neck
They stole all his breath
A black man fades

Lives ruined and wrecked
Who will be next?
Taken away

Because of
Pride and prejudice
Spiteful violent fits
Police on power trips

8 and 46
No
He did not resist
8 and 46
No
He did not deserve this
Say His name, say His name
Say His name
Say His name

The devil in blue
Took a flower in bloom
Through fire and flames

A young noble grace
A medic so brave
Her home is her grave

‘Cause
Pride and prejudice
Spiteful violent fits
Police on power trips

8 rounds of bullets
No
She was just 26
8 rounds of bullets
No
No She did not deserve this
Say Her name, say Her name
Say Her name
Say Her name

We hear all your cries
We see all their lies
We stand by your side
Stand up we rise, stand up we fight

I cannot breathe
I cannot breathe
I beg and I plead
Why can’t you see I cannot breathe

We cannot breathe
We cannot breathe
Why can’t you see
We cannot breathe
No

Hate and blue devil bullshit
No
They did not deserve this
Hate and blue devil bullshit
No
Nobody deserves this
Say Their names, say Their names
Say Their names
Say Their names
WE CANNOT BREATHE
WE CANNOT BREATHE
