Twenty Seven Million (Redman Matt)

See what the world’s done? Came to London She’s a nothing, a no one, she’s undone Broken dreams, stolen freedom Trapped in the night, trafficked and beaten All a part of an evil economy Nothing more than someone’s commodity A precious being like you and me A daughter, a sister, a somebody! She was drawn by the bright lights She was tied up in their lights She worked right through the daylight No voice, she’s a slave to the night 27 million like me (That’s 27 million on this cruel journey) We’ve got to rise up, open our eyes up Be her voice, be her freedom, come on stand up! We’ve got to rise up, open our eyes up Be her voice, be her freedom, come on stand up! We’ve got to rise up, open our eyes up Be her voice, be her freedom, come on stand up! We’ve got to rise up, open our eyes up Be her voice, be her freedom, come on stand up! After the man left, she’s nothing left No one, no love, no one to call her friend She’s stuck in the pit of hell She’s almost sick from the smell She’s numb, she’s dead from the inside out Her heart is screaming but you don’t hear the shout Who’s the voice? Who’s gonna break the door down? Who wakes her up from the nightmare now? She was drawn by the bright lights She was tied up in their lights She worked right through the daylight No voice, she’s a slave to the night 27 million like me (27 million need Heaven’s mercy!) We’ve got to rise up, open our eyes up Be her voice, be her freedom, come on stand up! We’ve got to rise up, open our eyes up Be her voice, be her freedom, come on stand up! We’ve got to rise up, open our eyes up Be her voice, be her freedom, come on stand up! We’ve got to rise up, open our eyes up Be her voice, be her freedom, come on stand up! 27 million, are you joking? How did we let evil get so tight a grip Watching while the world falls apart? How did we let this stuff begin? We’re not bothered if this offends Cause you got people that can depend But they ain’t got that, they got nothing Sometimes you gotta stand for something Let this be the stand against your blood running Little girl don’t cry Let me dry your eyes in the darkest night (You’re not alone) Hold on through the storm You’re not on your own Hold on, love will come We’ve got to rise up, open our eyes up Be her voice, be her freedom, come on stand up!
