Political Revolution

Prince Protests Police Violence in Song

‘Baltimore’ is the new protest song against police violence recorded by Prince. It sounds soft, sweet, and surprisingly upbeat. More than a protest, it is a plea for peace, justice, and love.

‘Baltimore’ Lyrics

Baltimore

Nobody got in nobody’s way
So I guess you could say
It was a good day

At least a little better than the day in Baltimore
Does anybody hear us pray
For Michael Brown or Freddie Gray?
Peace is more than the absence of war

Absence of war
Are we gonna see another bloody day?
We’re tired of cryin’ and people dyin’
Let’s take all the guns away

Absence of war – you and me
Maybe we can finally say
Enough is enough, it’s time for love

It’s time to hear
It’s time to hear the guitar play
Guitar play, Baltimore
Ever more

If there ain’t no justice then there ain’t no peace
If there ain’t no justice then there ain’t no peace
If there ain’t no justice then there ain’t no peace
If there ain’t no justice then there ain’t no peace

We have to interrupt the regular scheduled programming to bring you up to date on a developing situation in Los Angeles…
