Delta Rae Release Song In Response To Charleston Shooting

delta rae

Delta Rae have responded to the horrifying events in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday by doing what they do best: penning a song. The event hit home for the group, seeing as they’re based in Durham, North Carolina. In protest to tragedy, they wrote and recorded a protest song, “All Good People,” as a means of expressing their “outrage, sadness, and insistence that things must change.” You can view their statement, stream the song, and check out the lyrics below:

“Our hearts and prayers are with the families of those killed in Charleston, SC last night. These tragedies have got to STOP…It’s time to push our leaders to act. All good people must raise their voices. We need to protect every member of our community from hate and racism. And we need to stop so much of this violence by limiting access to guns…This is not the country we want to be. These actions do not represent our values.”

All Good People

There are dogs in the yard

Howling at the moon

There are sinners like me

Our judgement’s coming soon

And I stand at the bottom

Of this dark and lonely well

Saying please give me answers

So I might escape hell

I watched from my window

As they gunned down unarmed men

Tried to say it’s not my problem

Couldn’t happen to my friends

But the truth is they’re my brothers and they’re my countrymen

And if we lose our better angels

We won’t get them back again

Come on and raise your voice

Above the raging sea

We can’t hold our breath forever

When our brothers cannot breathe

All good people, won’t you come around

And defend your brother

All good people, won’t you come around

Hold up each other
