Jamison Young: songz

empty house

brid sky

the white man took from the black man in this land

dammed the river and fenced the land

built a home for me to live

gave me words to understand

now i have more than i can eat

i do not share i keep and keep

have no woman to keep me warm

this soul’s a desert and the fridge is full  

cast a cloud on the light

empty house without an exit sign  

to know the shadow and smile in burning coals

be the victim and move along

the moment yet have a plan  

cast a cloud on the light ...
