Black Beauty Lyrics – Ben Harper

Ben Harper

beautiful so beautiful
i am an astronaut
i am a president
i am a revolutionary
i’m your neighbor
we are black
we are beautiful
so beautiful
i’m a son and i am a daughter
a teacher and a farmer
a race car driver
a poet and an astronomer
we are black
we are beautiful
so beautiful
from the creator is all of creation
reimagine your imagination
in the balance the fate of a nation
evolution without revolution
breeds a racist institution
part of the problem or the solution?
don’t pretend not to see and expect absolution
i’m not what you think i am
i’m not what they say i am
i rise up and i take my stand
i am whatever i dream to be
we are black
we are beautiful
so beautiful
