Lyrics

These are lyrical miracles poetic calls When duty calls we look to the lord outta prison Sorry it happened for a reason And am bold that I had this chance but I’ll look up to God even when am a black man with sagging pants

Chorus

Am a witness Am a witness Am a witness Am a witness look

Verse 2

In ocean’s wide domains half buried in sands lie skeletons in chains, with shackled feet and hands.

They are the black slave-ship swims, freighted with human forms whose fettered fleshless limbs are not the sport of storms.

These are the bones of slaves; they glean from the abyss, they cry from yawning waves, “we are the witnesses!”
