​Sad And Beautiful World

This song is by Danny Michel & The Garifuna Collective and appears on the album Black Birds Are Dancing Over Me (2012).

In these times, these dangerous times
The world held down by backwards minds
With closed eyes, and hearts shut, blind
It's a sad and beautiful world
It’s a sad and beautiful world

What's the use in nations and borders?
Lines and walls that just divide.
I would love it for you to come over
but we were born on the wrong side.

Water's rising - knee deep and climbing
Politicians go rowing by
Photo albums float by me, broken
Dreams leaking out, all their memories die.

Would we feel the ending, if it all started again.
This time with new faces, our lives trading places
in this sad and beautiful world.

In these times, these dangerous times
A world held down by backwards minds
There’s a baby born on a cold winter’s morn
In a sad and beautiful world
In a sad and beautiful world.

(guitar solo)
I could sing this same song over
I could sing it again and again
I won't be the first and I won't be the last
But the Clash poured the gas on me when I was a kid
Young minds, a new generation
The revolution is in your hands
Take the reins back, step on the kings, Jack
Don't look back, just take a stand.

All these sensitive colors,
Still we all bleed red
We're all born, we die
We live life, and cry
In this sad and beautiful world

In these times, these gluttonous times
A world held down by selfish minds
There’s a baby born on a muggy hot morn
In a sad & beautiful world
In a sad & beautiful world
(Let’s go)
(guitar solo)
Till every bullet is melted
For every boy & girl
The sun will come up in a new town each morning.
In a sad and beautiful world

In these times, these dangerous times
A world held down by fearful minds
Shots ring out, church bells chime
In a sad & beautiful world

In these times, these dangerous times
A world held down by backwards minds
I was born on a cold winter's morn
In a sad and beautiful world
In a sad and beautiful world
In a sad and beautiful world
In a sad and beautiful world
