Brother Ali - Mourning In America Lyrics




I don’t usually use those big words
Cause I don’t usually deal with big people
I find you can get a whole lot of small people
And whip hell out of a whole lot of big people

Murder murder murder kill kill kill
Cannibals walk the earth and get ill blood spill
Eyes sunk deep in their skull their bone chill
Few for survival most for the thrill

Terrorism is the war of the poor
Hold up a mirror so the script get flipped
Cause when it’s in reverse it ain’t wrong no more
Warfare’s the terrorism of the rich

Who’s the true guerilla
When the bomb on your body killing innocent civilians
But a life is a life and a killer is a killer
You’re at a desk chillin’ push a button kill a million

See the anguish of the parents
When they’re carrying the body of the baby that they cherish
When innocent people perish
It’s a very thin line between a soldier and a terrorist

Murder murder kill kill kill
Death and destruction a cap get pealed
Harm or heal destroy and rebuild
Shots still ring out the blood still spill

Murder murder kill kill kill
Death and destruction a cap get pealed
Harm or heal destroy and rebuild
Shots still ring out the blood still spill

Overseas we can mutilate and mangle
Let me give you an example what our troops are coming back to
Cold cities where the youth are getting strangled
The community in peril and our future looking narrow

Your school already failed you

The boys in blue will nail you they salute you with a barrel
The streets are a certified dead zone
Decorated with chalk lines and headstones

All the way live and every night the bullets flying
Even if you ain’t dying you a traumatized survivor
When you grow up in a climate of overriding violence
You will never get beyond it it’s always alive inside you

And death just surrounds you
Fallen classmates’ ghosts haunt you
Crime just calls you cause you look at what you walk through
Ain’t certain if you’ll make it ain’t sure you even want to

Murder murder kill kill kill
Death and destruction a cap get pealed
Harm or heal destroy and rebuild
Shots still ring out the blood still spill

Murder murder kill kill kill
Death and destruction a cap get pealed
Harm or heal destroy and rebuild
Shots still ring out the blood still spill

[Choir:]
Tears and sorrow block the sunlight
Head low heart broke eyes closed tongue-tied
Waters raise the tide is climbing
Speeding time the sky is crying
Shots are fired bombs and sirens
War and riots mourning in America

Now that society forgot you
And they locked you in an obstacle course where nothing’s possible
If you slip up and they caught you
They got boxes where they lock you make a million dollars off you

They rule you too rude to school
They screw you in a booth shoot electricity through you
Or inject death into you
On a television set and let it ooze through you

Every time a leader tries to stand up for our freedom
Someone claps them with the heater their brain and back leaking
A shame their family grieving the only way to see them
Is a displaced dream displayed in a museum

They say they built our nation for a reason
Then they stained it with the bleeding of the slaves that never seen it
I ain’t hating I still want to believe it
And I’m not trying to leave it I just call it how I see it

Murder murder kill kill kill
Death and destruction a cap get pealed
Harm or heal destroy and rebuild
Shots still ring out the blood still spill

Murder murder kill kill kill
Death and destruction a cap get pealed
Harm or heal destroy and rebuild
Shots still ring out the blood still spill

They haven’t got anything to lose
And they’ve got everything to gain
And they’ll let you know in a minute
It takes two to tango. When I go, you go

    HERE WE GO AGAIN

  2. noofalata

    it's a very thin line between a soldier and a terrorist ...

  3. LRShark

    If you're against ALI you're against the PEOPLE, This man is the truth!

  4. xBLiTZxKRiEGx

    everyone went hype for 'This Is America', but it was mostly flashy symbolism and shocking gun violence.
    this song and video are so much more aggressive assaults on the problems that plague our country

  5. John Allen

    How the hell have I never heard of this guy before?

  6. Yusuf Sahin

    Your at a desk chilling push a button kill a million
    Im shivering that line was powerfull

  7. Immortal Ideas

    S●LID 👈✔✔✔✔
    Heros a perspective.

  8. Gail Jackson

    💯💜☮️

  9. Prison Mike

    No one survives when freedom fails, The best men rot in filthy jails, And those who cry 'appease, appease' Are hanged by those they tried to please.

  10. allseeingI5

    Too bad he's just another Muslim that hates America

  11. Aydin Ismail

    666 dislikes, because only a devil would dislike this song.

  12. Viking Born

    Anyone who follows a religion is the enemy of free people and must be wiped out.

    AMERIKKKA needs mourn nothing but the TRUTH and the TRUTH shall set you FREE and have a REVOLUTION against the ZIONISTS who blew up the World Trade Centers(see Larry Silverstein) and these same ZIONIST Jews who made up the majority of African Slavery within the United States! Modern Zionism was created in 1897 by a White Supremacist name< Theodor Hurzl!

  21. Screaming Mime

    I'm Islamophobic because I want to rip away Muslims religious rights to oppress women and homosexuals. Ali, I love you, Allah, suck my uncut dick, Allah, pull the foreskin back a lick the tip, bitch.

    Siddhartha

    Rip and oppress yourself Islamophobe. Wtf kind of a comment is that man?

    Screaming Mime

    @Siddhartha it's a comment from my heart, I'm now considered islamophobic because I won't tolerate Islams oppression over women, homosexuals and atheists.

    Siddhartha

    Screaming Mime maybe more well directed thought portrayed in your words would suit u

  22. Swift Justice

    one path....

  23. K J

    Everything mentioned in his lyrics has been twisted . American soldiers fight to protect innocent lives abroad..We fight against everything mentioned..You'd like nothing more to twist the mind's of our youth.. As we will continue to pray for you and EDUCATE your youth...... Say no to Drug's.!

  46. Cugel The Not-So-Clever

    Brother Ali speaks the truth. God blessed this man with a talent for expressing the problems with this evil country, that's why they try to silence him. Rise up and be the change. "The different parts of a body work selflessly to serve one another and keep the body healthy. Similarly, a healthy society is one in which the different sections serve each other instead of selfishly trying to enjoy it by themselves."
