Mason Jennings Lyrics: Black Panther

Black Panther
from Birds Flying Away


Black Panther defy the power
Fight the violence with nonviolence
What good is justice if the scales are bent
By a criminal government

Think of the dead in Vietnam
Think of the dead in Birmingham
Think of the freedom we don't understand
Asleep in bed in a stolen land

Responsibility to understand
Responsibility to take a stand
Responsibility to know your place
In the struggle of the human race
