Call It What It Is

This song is by Ben Harper and appears on the album Call It What It Is (2016).

They shot him in the back
Now it's a crime to be black
So don't act surprised
When it gets vandalized

Call it what it is
Call it what it is
Call it - what it is
Murder

Good cops
Bad cops
White cops
Black cops

But got to call it what it is
Call it what it is
Call it - what it is
Murder, murder, murder

Trayvon Martin
Ezell Ford
Michael Brown
And so many, many more

But call it what it is
Call it what it is
Call it - what it is
Murder, murder

Government (ain't easy)
Policing (ain't easy)
Hard times (ain't easy)
Oppression (ain't easy)
Racism (ain't easy)
Fear (ain't easy)
Suffering (ain't easy)

But call it what it is
Call it what it is
Call it - what it is
Murder, murder

Gun control
Mind control
Self-control
We've dug ourselves a hole

Call it what it is
Call it what it is
Call it - what it is
Murder

Got to call it what it is
Call it what it is
Call it - what it is
Murder

Call it what it is
Call it what it is
Call it - what it is
