Lyrics

Justice, aka We Need You Here Today
© 2015 Sahlen-Starburst

Nasty scars upon her back from the whippings she's endured
Filling burlap bags through the vision sweat obscures
Her fingers dripping blood from the cotton's thorns
She searches for the hope of a chance to be re-born

(chorus)
Justice are you looking down so sweet and full of pain
In the early light of dawn following an August rain
Where are you, I can't see you, but I sense you're on your way?
You're such a long time coming, we need you here today

Marching across bridges through the history of our times
I can see your steady progress as we leave the past behind
Being dragged from luncheon counters, arrested on a bus
Paved the path toward freedom, full equality for us

(optional chorus)

Break

Bridge
Over centuries you struggle through deniers and support
Though you never have stopped trying as our history will report
Sometimes subtle sometimes bold, sometimes cautiously alone
With a hand upon your trigger life can find the seeds you've sown

(Chorus)

I enjoyed listening to this song. It has an "Old School" feel which was refreshing to listen to. The vocals, instrumentation, lyrics and production all suited this song well. The lyrics told a story, which is always a sign of a well written song.
