Semana Gil Scott-Heron: "We Almost Lost Detroit"

Written by , Posted in Música

Pra lembrar a essa grande perda, uma música do grande Gil Scott-Heron por dia durante essa semana.

It stands out on the highway
Like a creature from another time
It inspires the babies’ questions (“What’s that?”)
For their mothers as they ride
But no one stopped to think about the babies or
How they will survive

And we almost lost Detroit
This time
How will we ever get over
Losing our minds

Just thirty miles from Detroit
Lies a giant power station
It ticks each night as the city sleeps
Like a creature from another time
But no one stopped to think about the people or
How they will survive

And we almost lost Detroit
This time
How will we ever get over
Losing our minds

The sheriff of Monroe County’s got
Sure ‘nough, disasters on his mind
But what would Karen Silkwood say to you
If she was still alive
That when it comes to people’s safety
Money wins out every time

Almost lost Detroit
This time
How could we ever get over
Losing our minds
