Scream

Scream

by Brother Dash

Beautiful one
Your pain reverberates
Suspended emotion
Is it love? Is it hate?
Admit you’re to blame?
Is there really a choice?
Your bail is denied
No freedom of voice
In a cell, In a hole
Even thoughts are confined
Tell her how can you think?
When the world sees your mind?
Oh beautiful one
Make the world feel your dreams
Jump on the stage
Grab the mic and just scream

Scream to the room filled with juries and judges
Scream to perfection they won’t get rid of their grudges
Scream to the heavens when you’re thirsty for rain
Scream long and bitter not short and sweet make it plain

That lump in your throat you can swallow with pride
But don’t let it run, hide or fester inside
That emotion of fear
The accusation of guilt
When your world turns cold wrap yourself in a quilt
Each thread, each square is a moment in time
Over time, they combine to block the doubts in your mind
The liberation of pain, the affirmation of you
You’ll rise from the ashes of the false and the true
The world becomes known through this battle of opposites
Posit this…you can’t know strength without fear
The inner voice is a jewel but silence ain’t gold
Put the pen in your hand and let your story be told!

Scream to the room filled with juries and judges
Scream to perfection they won’t get rid of their grudges
Scream to the heavens when you’re thirsty for rain
Scream long and bitter not short and sweet make it plain

Beautiful one
You trust in The One
And The One ain’t the one to leave you broken and battered
Shattered and scattered
Is your heart made of glass?
If it is here’s the glue
Look inside see the you
See the hue
See the color
Touch the texture of life
If you listen you will hear the funky jazz of your soul
Grab your and just play
Play, play plaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay play
Make ‘me feel the pain that you feel
It’s so real
It’s so true
Speak for you
Speak for you
Just scream
To the room
Filled with juries and judges
Scream to perfection
They won’t get rid of their grudges
Scream to the heavens
When you’re thirsty
For rain
Scream long and bitter
Not short and sweet
Make it plain
Just scream
