about

Inspired by the killings in Charleston, SC and the recent wave of deaths of unarmed black people in the news, Outrage is a frustrated reaction and a call for peace and understanding fueled by a heavy drum beat that underscores the urgency of the lyrics.

lyrics

OUTRAGE
(Spain)

When I read the news I get angry
When I read the reviews, madder still
How can we defend brutal actions
When we know that it's not right to kill?

My outrage won't fit on your front page
When I see our world burning down
My outrage won't fit on your front page
It's not a black or white thing
It's just a wrong or right thing
And we all fall down

Pay attention to our history
Can't you see that a change has to come?
How long can we live in blindness
While they die through the sights of a gun?

White man, don't feel so threatened
The black man won't steal your corn
There's one simple thing you're forgetting
There's plenty of room for us all

My outrage won't fit on your front page
When I see our world burning down
My outrage won't fit on your front page
It's not a black or white thing
It's just a wrong or right thing
And we all fall down

People, don't let hate defeat you
Gotta build up this world torn apart
With your eyes and your ears and your mind
And the love that resides in your heart

My outrage won't fit on your front page
When I see our world burning down
My outrage won't fit on your front page
It's not a black or white thing
It's just a wrong or right thing
It's not a left or right thing
It's just a wrong or right thing
It's not a black or white thing
It's just a wrong or right thing
And we all fall down
