You may write me down in history With your bitter twisted lies You may trod me down in the very dirt And still like the dust I'll rise.
I'll Rise, written by Ben Harper and Maya Angelou
Every time feels like my first time. And I just find that the process of it feeds into one's own self-obsession.Ben Harper
My band is the best band in the world, period. So, I insist on every song being better then it is on the record. So by the end of the tour, we have to be playing the song better then how it’s recorded.Ben Harper
You see mama don't watch your damn football And your beer drinkin' just won't do You're just stayin' out late And you're preachin' the hate And you never have been true You see mama she want her somebody Who will let her be herself So she's leavin' you And your stinky damn ways Cause she's found somebody elseBen Harper
I can change the world With my own two hands Make a better place With my own two hands Make a kinder place.Ben Harper
The world awakens on the run And will soon be earning With hopes of better days to come It's a morning yearning.Ben Harper
