Dignity

“Many people think that police brutality only happens in America, but it’s everywhere, ... This song is against brutality, but it’s also about how we need to treat each other with dignity, treat nature with dignity, and treat ourselves with dignity. Because if we can’t see the dignity that Mother Nature gave to all of us, then how can we walk tall”

Angelique Kidjo

A glimpse of hope in humanity
The last frontier of our own sanity
Spread your love to all equally
And plant the seeds of radical beauty
The wind will blow
A light will show
Real Beauty
On a brand new day
The wind will blow
A light will show
Real Beauty
On a brand new day
It will glow
On a brand new day
A clear way
On a brand new day
It will glow
On a brand new day
We'll get down
On a brand new day

Walk with your head straight
Respect is reciprocal, is reciprocal
Stand with your head straight
Respect is reciprocal
Walk with your head straight
Respect is reciprocal, is reciprocal
Stand with your head straight
Respect is reciprocal
