Liner Notes: 

Reflecting on a few things. And these words are not about racial biases. It's much bigger than that.

Lyrics: 

My eyes done seen
My ears done heard
My mind's done wonderin'
I don't have no words
4 all that is here today, today
Still ain't nothing like yesterday

Your laws have changed
Your ways have 2
Everyone needs 2 count 4 something
Yet your heart's not new
4 all that is done today, today
Still it don't erase what was yesterday

Yesterday
What is yesterday
Is it still saying no today
2 where I can walk where I please
2 be where I am with ease
2 live in a country tis of thee
Without all the violence against me

My eyes done seen
My ears done heard
My mind's done wonderin'
I don't have no words
4 all that is here today, today
Still ain't nothing like yesterday

Very powerful lyrics and so true, they speak about issues we all experience regardless where we live and what colour of our skin is. Looking forward to hearing your lyrics in your amazing and highly inspiring song Craig.

Strong pointed sociopolitical message in the lyric that is made even more powerful by the personal intimate feel of the first person POV. The use of language has a poetic feel like a Gwendolyn Brooks poem. Really well crafted.

can feel the blues in those lyrics, there is a sad tiredness in them.
