Swindle ft. Maverick Sabre and Joel Culpepper - No Black, No Irish

Official audio for No Black, No Irish by Swindle featuring Maverick Sabre and Joel Culpepper. A gentle acoustic guitar and soulful vocals from Joel and Maverick bring a surprisingly light feel for such a message. The new album The New World is out October 29th.

Lyrics

Verse: (Joel)
So black I’m blue
Trying to talk to you
What I’m going through.
A story about my case
My skin, my race
Feeling displaced.
The sun may shine
For you my friend rain fills my eyes.
There are all these signs
All across the wall, so tall
Can’t get over it

Chorus: (Joel)
No black, no Irish
No black, no Irish yeah
No black, no Irish
No black, no Irish

Verse: (Maverick Sabre)
Break bread
Take a butter my brother
They mark us down as another
So they can teach they’re above ya
Now from the writings on the walls
To the signs on the corner shop
Built an empire off of us
Now they label us foreigners.
As we try brother
We can only just believe
That every time brother
Their words are to deceive.
Just you and I brother
That’s all that they can see.
They’ll never know what we can be.

Chorus: (Joel)
No black, no Irish
No black, no Irish yeah
No black, no Irish
No black, no Irish

Bridge: (Maverick Sabre & Joel)
And I know that the signs may change
Still the times ain’t paved in gold
And I know, you’re my friend until that time we’re not alone
So we roam, every land, every place, every corner that we call our own.
For our own, we still got so far to go

Chorus: (Joel)
No black, no Irish
No black, no Irish yeah
No black, no Irish
No black, no Irish
