lyrics

[James Baldwin]

REFRAIN
I'm terrified at the moral apathy, the death of the heart, which is happening in my country.

These people have deluded themselves for so long they really don't think I'm human. I base this on their conduct, not on what they say, and this means that they have become in themselves moral monsters.

It doesn't matter any longer what you do to me: you can put me in jail, you can kill me. By the time I was 17 you'd done everything that you could do to me. The problem now is: how you gonna save yourselves?

How you gonna save yourselves?

REFRAIN
I'm terrified at the moral apathy, the death of the heart, which is happening in my country.

There are days, one of them, when you wonder what your role is in this country and what your future is in it. How precisely are you going to reconcile yourself to your situation here, and how you're going to communicate that you are here?

The country has arrived at a place where it can no longer contain revolt. Human beings are not by nature non-violent, you know? You can only survive so many beatings, so much humiliation, so much despair, so many broken promises before something gives.

Before something gives.

REFRAIN
I'm terrified at the moral apathy, the death of the heart…

[Alice Walker]
We are being killed by people who don't feel – if we get down to that, that is the problem.

[James Baldwin]
I'm terrified at the moral apathy, the death of the heart…

[Alice Walker]
If you don't feel it you kill it because you think it doesn't feel either…

REFRAIN
I'm terrified at the moral apathy, the death of the heart, which is happening in my country.

[Alice Walker]
So away with that, we don't want that.

[James Baldwin]
I'm aware that something terrible has happened, which is very hard to describe.
