A Tribute to Gil Scott-Heron


Underneath the bridges sit the men
In the shade. They are low, they get high

Crack, tequila, meth-ampthetamine
On the run
(From the shit they've seen)
On the run
(From the shit they've done)

When i'm lonely I go sit with them
But some cans
(watch the tide come in)
Many times
(they have said to me)

Stay strong
Let the river take you to the sea
the truth alone will never set you free

Stay strong, when your knees and shaking and the ground is breaking
Stay strong, when the stakes are high and your soul is aching
Stay strong, when you can't get the damned monkey of your back
Stay strong, when your feet and jumping and your fists are pumping
Stay strong, when your head is spinning and your blood is thinning
Stay strong, when the heat is on but your wits are gone

Be safe, be strong, be free
