We out here Believin
Trying to Achieve all the dreams
We've been schemin
Open your eyes and mind
Maybe you'll see what we seein
Maybe you'll stop asking why
Stop the lies and recognize
That our lives are lives
They deserve news coverage
Justice and all the country's cries
While you just cashed your check on the corner of Wall Street
Another black baby just died
From lack of clean water and food to eat
The Country of opportunity
Unless you black like me
Amerikkka where every second
More And more kids are born into poverty
But Na you rather pretend
What we feel isn't real
Make us bend to blend
Say we have nothing
Then poke and probe us for trends
We create it
You take shit
What is this game
What does it take to win
Is it about brains?
About the strength you hold within?
What about the pain?
Or is it simply about skin?
You say the past is long gone
But your hate remains
We're just your pawns
Modern day slaves
Only now your words are the ones
keepin us chained
Trying to keep us tamed
"You did this to yourselves"
"if you work harder you too can build wealth"
"Everything cost money though, even ya health"
"A college education can free you"
"But you gotta pay for that too"
"White lives and black lives are equal"
"Why are we still talking about slavery"
"Oh that cop just shot that black kid?
I call it bravery"
"No one said it was easy, we've all been there"
You try to keep us down by not being around or showing you care
This eruption was your vision
Black destruction was the mission
