Gil Scott-Heron 1949-2011

Now, more than ever, all the brethren must be together
Every brother, everywhere, feels the time is in the air
Time and blood flows through common veins
And in the common eyes all see the same
Now, more than ever, all the family must be together
Peace go with you, brother
Though I ain’t so proud anymore
Peace go with you, brother
Recognition don’t come cheap anymore
You my lawyer, you my doctor, yeah
But somehow you forgot about me
And now, now when I see you
All I can say is, peace
Peace go with you, brother

—Gil Scott-Heron, “Peace Go with You, Brother”
