Testify
Lyrics
Testify

I see mothers sons, their hearts ripped in two with so much regret for what they can't do
Fathers who've failed misplace their hope children so lost resorting to dope
Grandparents with nothing just love in their hearts grandkids surviving through fits and false starts
Love so strong while ceasing to wait, righting the wrongs melting the hate
Truth so real (it) burns in my eyes flushes out memories deceptions and lies
Hurt and pain (that) devours us whole keeps us downtrodden diverting our goals
Families uprooted lost all they got chase just those dreams endangered to rot
Brothers and sisters blank stares in their eyes beg forlorn heroes to tell them no lies

CHORUS
THIS IS NOT THE WAY
THIS IS NOT THE WHY
NOW IS THE DAY
THAT I TESTIFY
I STAND BEFORE GOD
I STAND BEFORE MAN
WE'LL FIX THESE THINGS
I KNOW THAT WE CAN
I'M UP ON MY FEET
MY FISTS WAVING HIGH
I'VE FOUND ENOUGH COURAGE
NOW I TESTIFY

I see prophets and poets pointing at signs (and) gasping for breath as our futures unwind
Hatred so fierce with its venomous face (while) the interests rule on with inhuman disgrace
(I seen) things so wrong that they spark my unrest (as they) give me the strength to pound on my chest
(With a) wind so cold that it builds inner strength (as it) tightens it hold now held at arms length
(Under a) sky so dark with its thundering sounds as we're told to believe in madmen and clowns
Earth so scorched (and) smoke so thick from humanity's torch (that) it makes me feel sick
With jails so full of innocent lives injustice is served over lambs mesmerized
(Us) regular folks seeing death come so near must summon our strength to overcome fear
CHORUS
BRIDGE
I'm spilling my guts
I'm screaming my list
This madness must stop
We're better than this
