Lyrics A Place In This World – Common

No justice or justification
We trust in God but can’t trust in a nation
The cusp of generations searching for a ventilation
If 2020 vision is any indication of where we are
Where we’ve been, where do we go
American ain’t legible

My rights are being left behind
In questioned times they say invest in nines
Trying to rest my mind
The press be pressed to find
Stories ’bout my kind
A suggested crime

Though many, many holler ’bout justice reform
But won’t put dollars where the hustlers born
You know how politicians they love to perform
Acting and singing that government song
How they love America, well you loving it wrong
We the people are becoming reborn

Get knocked down and stand up
I still believe
That there’s a place in this world
For people just like me
People all around the world, stand up
I still believe
That there’s a place in this world
A place for me and you

Get knocked down and stand up
I still believe
That there’s a place in this world
For people just like you
People all around the world, stand up
I still believe
That there’s a place in this world
A place for me and you

Elastic winter in America
There’s more content than there is character
Truth is we qre staring at a derringer
Old ways is the barrel that’s daring us
We bear the cross and cross rivers
Of stolen souls and lost figures told by Doc Rivers

Movement of the people, we take God with us
And recreate equal that will out live us
Delivered to this earth with authority
Never thought of myself as a minority
Cordial invites to alt-lefts and alt-rights

I’m from the Bob Marley party
Everything will be alright
You say all live matters
But you’re paying no mind
When Black lives shattered
I know there’s light at the end of the struggle
Revolution and love is like a couple

Get knocked down and stand up
I still believe
That there’s a place in this world
For people just like me
People all around the world, stand up
I still believe
That there’s a plaсe in this world
A place for me and you

Get knocked down and stand up
I still believe
That there’s a place in this world
For people just like you
People all around the world, stand up
I still believe
That there’s a place in this world
A place for me and you…
