Lyrics:
Every day I wake and,
Everything is broken,
Turning off my phone just to get out of bed.
Get home every evening,
And history’s repeating,
Turning off my phone cuz its hurting my chest.
And heaven knows I’m not helpless,
But what can I do?
I can’t see the use in me crying
If I’m not even trying to make the change I wanna see
I can’t sit and hope, I
Can’t just sit and pray, that
I can find a love, when
All I see is pain
Falling to my knees
Though I do believe
Oh, I can’t just preach baby preach (woah oh oh oh oh ohhhh)
I can’t just preach, baby, preach
All I hear is voices,
Everybody’s talking,
Nothing real is happening, cause nothing is new.
Now when all is tragic,
And I just feel sedated,
Why do I feel numb, Is that all I can do?
And heaven knows I’m not helpless, yeah
But I’m only human.
Can’t see the use in me crying,
If I’m not even trying to make the change I want to see.
I can’t sit and hope, I
Can’t just sit and pray, that
I can find a love, when
All I see is pain
Falling to my knees
Though I do believe
Oh, I can’t just preach baby preach (woah oh oh oh oh ohhhh)
I can’t just preach, baby, preach
And heaven knows I’m not helpless,
What can I do?
Can’t see the use in me crying
If I’m not even trying to make the change I wanna see
I can’t sit and hope, I
Can’t just sit and pray, that
I can find a love, when
All I see is pain
Falling to my knees
Though I do believe
Oh, I can’t just preach baby preach (woah oh oh oh oh ohhhh)
I can’t just preach, baby, preach
Falling to my knees
And though I do believe
I can’t just preach, baby, preach.

Separation at the border is kind of needed you don’t know if the kids being trafficked or not it wouldn’t look like a prison or “concentration camp” if they had more funding. They are overworked and understaffed if they had more help and funding the process of helping immigrants and getting family’s back together would probably be faster. The cop shooting the kid, he was stopped because the cars was probably reported stolen or they were trying to find some suspects and he unfortunately matched the description. I don’t know why the friends was out of the car and stuff but that escalated the problem, but the biggest thing showed in the video is the kid putting his hands down it looks like he’s reaching for something 2:59 then at 2:48 I thought he was cuffed. School shooting I don’t know if he’s calling for gun control or not but if he is, gun control is not the problem helping kids mentally is the way to go. John your a good singer and meant well but there’s always two sides to every story. There are racist cops, unstable kids, corrupt border agents, and criminals; you are talking about the one percent. You can’t just pick sides and make a song about one side.

tradução Pregar Todo dia eu acordo e Tudo está despedaçado Desligo meu celular, só para levantar da cama Chego em casa toda noite E a história se repete Desligo meu celular, porque machuca meu peito E os céus sabem que não sou indefeso Mas o que posso fazer Não consigo ver utilidade em meu choro Se nem ao menos tento fazer a mudança que quero ver Eu não posso sentar e esperar Não posso apenas sentar e rezar, para que Eu possa encontrar o amor, quando Tudo que vejo é dor Caindo de joelhos E embora eu acredite Oh, não posso só pregar, amor, pregar (woah oh oh oh oh ohh) Não posso só pregar, amor, pregar Tudo o que eu escuto são vozes Todo mundo está falando Nada de verdade está acontecendo Porque nada é novidade Agora, quando tudo é tragédia E eu só em sinto sedado Por que me sinto entorpecido? É só isso que posso fazer? E os céus sabem que não sou indefeso Mas sou apenas um humano Não consigo ver utilidade em meu choro Se nem ao menos tento fazer a mudança que quero ver Eu não posso sentar e esperar Não posso apenas sentar e rezar, para que Eu possa encontrar o amor, quando Tudo que vejo é dor Caindo de joelhos E embora eu acredite Oh, não posso só pregar, amor, pregar (woah oh oh oh oh ohh) Não posso só pregar, amor, pregar E os céus sabem que não sou indefeso Mas o que posso fazer Não consigo ver utilidade em meu choro Se nem ao menos tento fazer a mudança que quero ver Eu não posso sentar e esperar Não posso apenas sentar e rezar, para que Eu possa encontrar o amor, quando Tudo que vejo é dor Caindo de joelhos E embora eu acredite Oh, não posso só pregar, amor, pregar (woah oh oh oh oh ohh) Não posso só pregar, amor, pregar Caindo de joelhos E embora eu acredite Oh, não posso só pregar, amor, pregar

Yo. I swear he sang the words from my soul. It fucking hurts me when people are hurt, scared, sad. I wish, I wish I could help everyone. If I'm stupid and naive then so be it. It's how I am. Why can't we just love each other? Where was this song? Just popped up in my recommendations.
