La’-Trice Anderson See the video for Good Trouble; it’s outstanding!

28 Hours skillfully done! And Brave raps up the the two parts for me in an exhilarating way!

Message in the music. I look forward to the upcoming tour. Favorite track: 28 Hours.

Track Name: Good Trouble
Think that I'm violent? Watch me make Good Trouble.
Track Name: 28 Hours
We're on a battlefield
Every sunrise
We were not trained to kill
How do we survive?
Bullseye stays on my face on my back on my hands on my feet on the track ahead of me on my eyes as I dream on everything

28 Hours

We're on a battlefield
In plain sight
Fighting a war we didn't wage
But either way, we gotta fight
Unarmed against an enemy of guns
Feeding hate for fear's lifeblood
Shave your head, bleach your skin,
change your name- still won't win.
Any moment you know it could be you-

28 Hours

There ain't nothing
You can do
To change them from seeing you
So you may as well love yourself
Who knows how long you will be--

28 hours
Track Name: Brave
Stand on the bridge while it burns
You'll wait for change
Walk into the storm your turn
You've seen worse rain
You can fight it from the sidelines
Or you can take it head on
You can try it - and see for once
You've always been that strong

To be brave - to say the unsaid to trod uncharted seas
To behave as if you know just what your world needs
To embrace the undone the unsung the danger of what you can't see
To misbehave and be brave

Call out the war for its war
It has a name
It's time to know your own sword
No time to waste
Others try it and deny it
Some stand in light and get burned
So when you rise
Let the sunshine be the fire you deserve

Be brave to say the unsaid to trod uncharted seas
To behave as if you know just what your world needs
To embrace the undone the unsung the danger of what you can't see
To misbehave and be brave

Ain't no corners
Ain't no borders
Ain't no Warriors made of words
Lift those fears now
If tears come down
You won't be deterred
