8 Minutes 46 Seconds

8 minutes 

46 seconds 

After centuries of injustice  

is that really what it took?

8 minutes 

46 seconds 

A video no one will ever forget  

The whole world is shook.

8 minutes  

46 seconds  

So short in the scope 

Of all the years of injustice that’s been done.

8 minutes 

46 seconds  

But for 1 man,

that time proved to be too long.

8 minutes  

46 seconds 

The world is finally starting to take notice 

Finally starting to see

8 minutes  

46 seconds 

I’m almost afraid to begin to hope, 

Afraid to begin to believe

Did it really take  

8 minutes  

46 seconds 

For them to finally feel our pain?

8 minutes  

46 seconds  

We can’t let his death be in vain.

We can’t let 

8 minutes  

46 seconds 

Be all of his story that is told.

8 minutes  

46 seconds  

We will keep saying his name because 

His life was so much more

than

8 minutes  

46 seconds  

We will honor him  

Stand up

demand change.

8 minutes  

46 seconds 

Because of you, George Floyd,  

Our country,

our world,

will never be the same.
