Brano da "12 Years A Slave (Music From And Inspired By)", che non è la colonna sonora del film di Steve McQueen (quella fu composta da Hans Zimmer) ma una raccolta di canzoni connesse al tema di quel film, che racconta la storia vera di Solomon Northup, un afroamericano libero del nord degli USA che nel 1841 venne sequestrato e venduto come schiavo nel Sud, rimanendo in schiavitù per 12 anni prima di riuscire a riacquistare nuovamente la libertà.

12 Years A Slave
Queen of the field
Born among cotton
Life wasted picking
Ignore the screaming

Queen of the field born among cotton
Just a little girl
A little girl forgotten
Born to cry
Born to die
Born to nothing

Once was a royal
Oh, such a beautiful face, yeah
Eat like the soil
Rich with disgrace
Oh ,oh

Now made to lie
Made to lie with a dirty man
Oh, oh, oh

Bed full of trees and a back baby
Life on a plantation

Born to die
Born to cry
Born to nothing
Oh, oh

Oh, no, no, nothing

Queen of the field
Born among cotton
Life wasted picking
Back road from whipping

Queen of the field
Born among cotton
Just a little girl
Just a little girl forgotten

Born to cry
Born to die
Born, born to scream not to dream
Lord, meant to dream not to scream
Born a Queen, cotton
How you gonna survive it?
Nuthin', nuthin'

Forgotten
