Testo Can't put it in the hands of fate di Stevie Wonder

Can't put it in the hands of fate

It's the R-A-P-S-O-D-Y
Yo

History say don't repeat her
Many years a slave, took notes from the Peter
You should marvel at the fightin', feel like Anitta
Apologize, you denied my people
Made our death legal, we all paralegal
Gotta defend ourselves when the laws ain't equal
Cops aim lethal, death in cathedrals
Bang, bang boogie, you could die wearin' a hoodie, bow

Yeah, uh
Alright, sometimes we gotta find our creator
If I defeated Father Time, was raised by Mother Nature
In the projects, tenement walls, sudden withdrawals
A true rebel is easy to spot the government flaws
Mass confusion, people in power commit collusion
Indoctrinated students, I'm the leader of the movement
Take lifetimes, tryna duck the school-to-prison pipeline
Disenfranchised, amazin' I'm in my right mind
Create change, survive, struggle to maintain
So many lies within the campaign, a damn shame
I'm thinkin' how will we survive
When the freedom that we have's a façade? Yeah

You say you're sick and tired of us protesting
I say, "Not time enough to make a change"
You say, "Just keep holdin' on"
I say "No, way, 'cause we can't put it in the hands of fate"
Can't put it in the hands of fate, now baby
You say that you believe in all lives matter
I say, I don't believe the fuck you do
You say, "All things in time"
I say, that's why I'm not gonna put it in the hands of fate

Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Not gon' put it in the hands of fate now, baby
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
No, no, no, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Can't put it in the hands of fate now, baby
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait

[?] tomorrow
[?] will sing your lullaby
But I've seen too many of our generations
Live and die for that high in the sky

You say, "Those innocent lives should've not been taken"
And I say, "For them, it's why we take a knee"
You say, "Is that the right lane"
I say, "First Amendment everyday"
'Cause we can't put it in the hands of fate

Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Can't put it in the hands of fate now, baby
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
No, no, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
We can't put it in the hands of fate now, baby
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Come on


[?] tomorrow
[?] will sing your lullaby
But I've seen too many of our generations
Live and die for that high in the sky

Yeah, we went from fields into a field
Bodies hit the ground, and so we gotta take a kneel
Mothers missin', kid's attorneys say they oughta take a deal
They determine that the prize of life is just a couple mill
And bricks are meant to build, and fires meant to light
And souls are meant to rest and living soldiers gotta fight
We don't need no politics to try to justify the plight
It's a problem of the people, it's no longer black and white

Look
So, we ain't talkin' no more, we gettin' to it
Can't put it in the hands of fate, this how we do it
Now let me go and get with all of my people, you know I have to get
That'll show me sacrifice just like my brother Colin Kaepernick
Opportunities that I get to talk, you know I have to spit
Breonna Taylor turn in her grave, you know we have to get justice
And stay in your place, we still focused on the outcome of George Floyd case
While you out here doin' the minimal, hah
Everything about us still live by the principle
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait

You say now you really truly get it
I say, "How much you do will let me know"
You say, "I'm so ready"
I say, "Let's do this, and not just put it in the hands of fate"

Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Can't put it in the hands of fate now, baby
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
No, no, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
We can't put it in the hands of fate now, baby
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
No, no, no, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
No
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
No, no, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
No
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
No, no, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Oh, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Oh, no, no, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Oh, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Oh, no, no, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
No, no, no
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait
Can't put it in the hands of fate, ain't nobody got time to wait

Si, lo riconosco, sicuramente il titolo è eccessivo.
