New Song: Branded

Een jongen met kroeshaar vertelde op tv: ‘We kunnen maar beter niet hollend proberen de bus of trein te halen, want ze zien ons al gauw voor vluchtende dieven aan.’ Zo ontstond de song ‘Branded’.

A boy with frizzy hair told on TV: ‘We better not run to catch the bus or train, because they quickly mistake us for fleeing thieves.’ This is how the song “Branded” was born.

Songtekst Branded – Pieter Tak

Marked from the nest
 where you were born
 marked from day one
 The only thing that seems to matter is
 where you are coming from
 As a kid he was curly and cute
 the youngster cast a shadow ahead
 No longer a promising star
 possibly brutal and bad

Branded
 Branded
 Branded
 for what you are
 Branded
 Branded
 Branded
 for what you are

Thrown out by the colour of your skin
 known for being with a lot
 The sound of your name is depending
 on whether you get the job or not
 If you drive a shiny car
 you are suspicious in their eyes
 Don't run to catch your bus or train
 only thieves run in their lies

Branded
 Branded
 Branded
 for what you are
 Branded
 Branded
 Branded
 for what you are

Branded for life
 if we don't fight it
 Branded for life
 if we stay blind
 Branded for life
 if we take this shit
 Branded for life
 in your mind
 Branded for life
 again and again
 Branded for life
 if we don't change
 Branded for life
 if we have no plan
 Branded for life
 it's insane

I can let it slip and slide
 'cause I'm white up to the bone
 I'm guilty from an historical point
 but awareness comes alone
 It is pinned on my every days list
 my failures come from the deep
 We are branded by our fellowmen
 and the slope is running steep

Branded
 Branded
 Branded
 for what you are
 Branded
 Branded
 Branded
 for what you are

Mooi lied, passend in deze tijd van ‘black lives matter’. Helder gezongen en helder gitaarwerk, met een fijne sax ertussendoor!
