Break the Silence.

Thank you to Piero Peluche for inspiring me with his instrumental. Here’s the full mix.

And thank you to my wife, Katie, for saying the phrase “it’s a perfect storm,” while we were learning, discussing, and processing. She also gets serious props for helping me with the lyrics.

The vocal stems in the zips are dry.

LYRICS
Feels like the perfect storm
Swirling in a vortex of catastrophic wrong
Feels like the perfect storm
Chaos all around, pushing us down
Feels like the perfect storm
Global pandemic inflames our deficiencies
Feels like the perfect storm
Climate crisis, unemployment, mass poverty
Feels like the perfect storm
Economic, ecologic, civic calamity
Feels like the perfect storm
Doomsday Clock marks our instability

See the clouds
Hear the thunder
Lightning strikes
Across the sky

Feels like the perfect storm
Pay attention now, we’re running outta time
Feels like the perfect storm
Confronted by the truth, society breaks down
Feels like the perfect storm
Fragility, denial, and complacency
Feels like the perfect storm
Break the silence now, end racist policy

Rain pours down
We can’t hide
Must take shelter
Floods will rise

Hold on, hold on, hold on for dear life
Hold on, hold on to dear life
Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for dear life
Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for your rights
Hold on, hold on, hold on for dear life
Hold on, hold on to dear life
Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for black lives
Fight, fight, fight, fight, fight for black rights

Feels like the perfect storm
Another black man murdered by police brutality
Feels like the perfect storm
Systemic racism upholds inequality
Feels like the perfect storm
Profiled, jailed, can’t post bail, forced to take a plea
Feels like the perfect storm
Mass incarceration is masked slavery

Feels like the perfect storm
Reparations owed to atone for history
Feels like the perfect storm
When Black Lives Matter, everyone is free

Rays of light
In the streets
Fight for justice
On one knee

Break the silence now, end racist policy
When Black Lives Matter, everyone is free
Break the silence now, abolish the police
When Black Lives Matter, everyone is free
