Stop The Traffic

This song is by Andy Mineo, features Co Campbell and appears on the compilation Stop the Traffic (2013).

(Verse 1 - Andy Mineo)
Yeah, there's so many things I wanna address
A cosmic issue, I'll do my best
These tracks are written in blood
We still buyin' people, slavery never left
There's 20+ million women and children
These are not numbers, they are souls that we're dealing with
I'm feeling sick thinking 'bout the innocent
Girls that got caught up on the strip making money for a pimp
See the game so slick, but it happens all the time
Before he broke her body, he had to break her mind
And he talkin' in her ear, all the stuff she wanted to hear
Stuff her daddy should've told her, but he probably wasn't there
She 14, bought her candy and a teddy bear
Bought her clothes, got her anything she wanted to wear
He got her nails done, told her that he loved her
But he said he'd love her more if she went and made him money

(Chorus - Co Campbell)
When is it all gon' change? Slavery still remains, yeah
Their minds, their hearts, all torn apart, yeah
We must remain till we see them broken chains, yeah
Your pain, your scars, we'll carry till your freedom is ours

(Verse 2 - Andy Mineo)
To all my fathers that ain't runnin'
Please tell your daughters that you love them
And if you don't, then somebody else will
Yo they need it, just to hear it they might let somebody touch them
And some use sex to get love
And some use love to get sex
And some use sex to get the bread that they need to pay rent
'Cause nobody gonna do it for the kids
So tell me what's the price of life?
Some children are learning how to pull tricks while others learning to ride bikes
And this right here been under our noses
How we didn't notice? But now that we know this
Expose the darkness, if we the light of Christ
Then we gotta stop taking our reality in doses
It's your mother, your sister, your daughter, pray you see it
'Cause heroes ain't for sale and the body shouldn't be either

(Chorus - Co Campbell)
When is it all gon' change? Slavery still remains, yeah
Their minds, their hearts, all torn apart, yeah
We must remain till we see them broken chains, yeah
Your pain, your scars, we'll carry till your freedom is ours
