“I Can’t Breathe” Song

It’s been awhile since I’ve written a new song, but desperate times call for desperate lyrics. So with that, here’s, “I Can’t Breathe,” which is one of those God-perspective-type songs.

VERSE 1
How many times
Must the ground open up
To drink the blood of innocent skin
How many times
Will Lamech get his way
And claim that I embraced his sin

CHORUS
And they can’t hear you calling out
I. Can’t. Breathe.
But Abel’s blood screams out to me
And they can’t hear you calling out
I. Can’t. Breathe.
But baby I haven’t missed a thing

VERSE 2
How many times
Must tongues be lifted high
If the lesson learned is set aside
One God for all
In every language, every tribe
The Church is diversity as Bride

BRIDGE
I knit you in the womb
As an image of myself
And I see you in the tomb
And your blood cries for itself
