Don't think I see you anymore Least not the way I saw you before We're caught up in traffic The landscape changes Life is confusing and people are insane
Can we be happy for a while Can we just sit here, shut up and smile Been talking for hours Forgot what we're saying Life is confusing and people are insane Life is confusing and people are insane
Wish that I could see you smile Wish we could forget ourselves for a while But your heart is wild Or if its been tamed Life is confusing and people are insane Life is confusing and people are insane ...
Harriet Tubman (born Araminta Ross, 29. jan 1822 – 10. mar 1913) was an American abolitionist and political activist.
Born into slavery, Tubman escaped and subsequently made some thirteen missions to rescue approximately seventy enslaved people, family and friends, using the network of antislavery activists and safe houses known as the Underground Railroad.
She later helped abolitionist John Brown recruit men for his raid on Harpers Ferry. During the American Civil War, she served as an armed scout and spy for the United States Army.
In her later years, Tubman was an activist in the struggle for women’s suffrage.
