Matthew Mayfield – Still Alive lyrics

Birmingham 1963
Blue eyed boy on safe ground just like me
Can you hear the screams coming over that mountain
The sound of supremacy forced on thousands

[Chorus:]
Can we we recall
When hearts haven't changed at all
It reigns and rings of fire
And genocide is still alive
Alive

James Bird can you hear me crying
White boy in Alabama head down tryin'
To figure out why they might do it to you
Three up front prowling like animals too
String him up behind the truck
Forty miles an hour
And run it red so the nigger can feel your white power

[Chorus:]

Soon and there's a west end fire burning
The child's eyes are wide watching the barrels turning
They stake claim inside of your wife and daughter
A bullet in the head for the cover man's honor

Can we we recall
Our hearts haven't changed at all
It reigns and rings of fire
And genocide is still alive
Still alive(x3)
Alive
Still alive(x2)
