Black lives matter
Justice for George Floyd
Black out Tuesday

I stand with you

With respect for your birth, 

Because it's the right thing to do

For we share the same Earth

I stand with you

Though I can't understand, 

What it's like for you

But I'll hold your hand

I stand with you

Against discrimination, 

And racial injustice

From any nation

I stand with you

So less lives shatter, 

I stand with you

Because black lives matter
