Just imagine being black in America
Your father Your mother Your sibling
Just another causality A week long News story One after the other in this amoral reality
The matter of Black lives is not up for debate If you disagree,
You're getting advice from those people that found 'MERICA so God Damn great
You try being me, Black in America
You try your hardest to prove who you can be. No don't use your privilege, do it just like me.
After all I Just want to be treated just like you You see?
The point is elementary
I live like them Them live like me
We try to prove our worth Knowing all we can be
They control who they pick And it ain’t us folk
In short, those luxuries are not for you and me
They tell us "it's not for you to go and get a degree"
They hate us for our skin color, just taking our lives
The war is so big,
These are our rights too, so scream BLACK LIVES
in America trying to survive
we've had enough of your senseless killing
Too many mothers, fathers, children have cried.
Not all of us brothers and sisters have been on the ground begging for our lives
The fear runs deep It's as simple this
A Mother texting her babyboy "Until you get home, I can't sleep"
They will not accept defeat, hiding behind the lies
About the black humans they've killed The culture, inventions they stole from our kind
"Shhhh, don't say that" it damages their white pride
But I'll say "If they protect "all lives" what about mine?"
They enforce the law for me, but not the whites with the TEC-9s
A broken system Abusing the power we provide to normalizing hate
Continuing to push racial divide
Too many Black lives murdered for no reason
With "MAGA" in the White House and in their heads To those people being racist is in season
Justifying someone's murder to exonerate of a "blue" life Should be considered treason
White suprematists in Blue killing us for no reason.
