lyrics

I was formed; I grew to be a man
Before I saw, I came to understand:
My brother’s skin is such a richer shade
He wears the earth, his hair a pitch-black mane

I’ve waited long enough
How long will it be?
Before they look at him
The way they look at me

I can hide behind my bluish eyes
My olive skin I wear as a disguise
The desert air is in my breath
The longest river in my chest

I’ve waited long enough
How long can it last?
I’ve heard it all before
Leave your hatred in the past

Brother Lion, would you use my voice to share your roar?
Together we can reach them tethered to a line worth pulling forward
Together we can reach them

We were raised on hope and forged in fire
The world is ours; a future we’ll inspire
My brother lion roar with me
We’ll make them hear what they can’t see

I’ve waited long enough
How long will it be?
Before they look at you
The way they look at me
