Brother's Keeper – Why Are We Waiting lyrics

Bombs exploding—holy wars
Freedom summer ‘64
What if the whole world stops hating
Why are we waiting?

Feast or famine—pressure’s on
Baby’s hungry, money’s gone
One more empty stomach aching
Why are we waiting?

We seen kings and queens and presidents
Who said their cure was heaven-sent
Guess we should’ve kept on praying
Poets, preachers, prophets tell us love can only stop it
Why are we waiting?

Never gonna give up

Gangs are bangin brothers down
In the city streets, country towns
Another mother’s heart is breaking
Why are we waiting?

Television shows it all
Free speech—is it for us all
What kind of world have we created
Why are we waiting?
