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!
