Better Way Lyrics by India.Arie

 

Better Way by India.Arie


Yeah, yeah
Let my people go
Let my people go
In the swamps of New Orleans
The rain came pouring down
So heavy was the water
That the walls came crashing down
Now I know a survivor
But how the hell you justify
Leaving a hundred thousand
People in water that high
Just struggling for their lives?
I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
And we've gotta find it
Stand up
(We've gotta find it)
Or fall down
(We've gotta find it)
Politicians are screaming
They say we've got a reason for war
So many people are dying
And we ain't even sure what for
Is it because he's a Muslim?
Tell me is it democracy or is it the oath?
It's on the news every day, one paycheck away
And the President's on the golf course
I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
And we've gotta find it
You got to stand together
(We've gotta find it)
Or we could fall apart
(We've gotta find it)
We've gotta find it, yeah
Sweet buttered craw dad, delta bread
Hot pepper soul, that's been sold out
Lives that were taken before they found out
What life was all about
He's a genius with the lyrics
Started young sipping syrup
And it hurts me to my soul
The way he drinks away the pain
The world's going to lose him
Another young superhero
We've gotta find it
We've gotta find it
We've gotta find it
We've gotta find it
We've gotta find it
We've gotta find it
We've gotta find it
We've gotta find it
See the children on TV
It's become a sign of the times
Glorifying their bodies
Something just don't feel right
Still we keep pretending
That boys and girls are men and women
We watch it and we call it entertainment
And everything is okay
As long as somebody's getting paid
I know there's got to be a better way
I know there's got to be a better way
Hey, there's got to be a better way
And we've gotta find it
We've gotta find it
We've gotta find it
