Pretend We Do Not See (The Killing of Michael Brown)

Variation on The Hanging Tree by Suzanne Collin. Lyrics (copyright Jerroll Sanders). Vocalist is Kimberly Baker.

Are you, are you, Coming to the streets, Where they shot up a man, Surrendered on his knees, Strange things did happen here, No stranger would it be, If we close our doors, Pretend we do not see. Are you, are you, Coming to the streets, Where dead men call out, It’s justice that we need, Strange things did happen here, No stranger would it be, If we close our doors, Pretend we do not see. Are you, are you Coming to the streets, To lift up your voice, So we can be free, Strange things did happen here, No stranger would it be, If we close our hearts, Pretend we do not see. Are you, are you, Coming to the streets, An agent of change, Locked hand-in-hand with me, Strange things did happen here, No stranger would it be, If we close our doors, Pretend we do not see.
