H.e.r. Bloody Waters

H.e.r. Bloody Waters

With esteemed producers like Hit-Boy and Mike-Will-Made-It garnering credits through the lengthy, near-eighty minute project, the Thundercat and Kaytranada-assisted “Bloody Waters” is reminiscent of the smoothest 70s soul and sultriest 90s R&B. It’s bewildering to think that in 2021, YouTube comments can surface about a brand new song honing similarities to Marvin Gaye; now, while that’s a stretch, there are parallels in there if you listen closely enough. From the swaying vocals to the pitter-pattering hi-hats, it’s hard to not come out and say something so bold about a song so damn engaging.

Lyrics

[Intro: H.E.R.]
Can we try for a moment?
Ooh (Can we try?)
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Ooh
No, no, no, no, no

[Verse 1: H.E.R.]
Bloody waters
Drowning every day
Every day
Feels like I’m runnin’ in slow-motion
And I’m losing the race, oh-oh

[Pre-Chorus: H.E.R.]
Ooh, so frustrating
Ooh, you keep on taking
Ooh, corporate racists
Ooh, got me praying
‘Cause all I hear is sirens from every way
Every way, yeah

[Chorus: H.E.R.]
Can’t make no sense about it
Tired of hearing about it
We ain’t talking about it
We don’t wanna see
Can’t make no sense about it
Get so anxious about it
We keep talking around it
Reassess it, yeah
Speculate caution signs
Incriminate people’s minds
War and love don’t combine
Destiny doesn’t roll the dice
Watch your back, save me mine
Under attack, spiritual kind
Where you stand, you decide
Destiny doesn’t roll the dice

[Post-Chorus: H.E.R.]
Ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh (Oh)
Ooh-ooh (Yeah)
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh (Oh)
Ooh-ooh (Ooh)
Ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

[Verse 2: H.E.R.]
Bloody waters
Baptize me
Can’t stand the rain
Yeah, yeah
Oh, Lord
Please come save me
From all of this pain, pain, yeah

[Pre-Chorus: H.E.R.]
Reparations
Ooh, no conversation
Ooh, insensitive maybe
Ooh, times ain’t changing (Times ain’t changing)
No, people marching, no one’s there to lead (Uh)
Someone give me somethin’ to believe, yeah

[Chorus: H.E.R.]
Can’t make no sense about it (No, we can’t)
Tired of hearing about it (Oh, baby)
We ain’t talking about it (Oh-oh)
We don’t wanna see (We don’t wanna see)
Can’t make no sense about it (Can’t make no sense)
Get so anxious about it (Oh-oh)
We keep talking around it (We keep talking)
Reassess it, yeah
Speculate caution signs (Caution signs)
Incriminate people’s minds (People’s minds)
War and love don’t combine
Destiny doesn’t roll the dice
Watch your back, save me mine
Under attack, spiritual kind
Where you stand, you decide
Destiny doesn’t roll the dice (No, it don’t)

[Post-Chorus: H.E.R.]
Ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

[Outro: H.E.R.]
Waters
