What the Eye Can See

Minneapolis, Minnesota

Stanford Thompson visits George Floyd Square on election day to experience everything through his own eyes.

Lyrics

Last week I was restless
I wanted to visit the square
Where George Floyd was murdered
Something calling me there_____

I want to see what the eye can see
I know I need to make peace_____
With what the eye can see

My father would tell me
For him it was all real life
In Jackson, Mississippi
Not in black and white

I want to see what the eye can see
I know I need to make peace
With what the eye can see

Bridge:

Since the start of 2020
Hundreds of lives were lost
Hundreds of names were painted
Up there on the block
And George Floyd’s name
Was right there at the top

I broke down when I got there
Like a faucet I started to cry
I’m a tough guy, kind of, but
So many lives
I want to see what the eye can see
I know I need to make peace
With what the eye can see

And pushes the potato cases
I resist against the cases
I silence my children
Thank god, they don’t find us”
