Nothing more what elese to say?
Have our days been counted?
What to do but pray?
I live a life of oppresion
And being brown is my obsession
But how has my color helped me?
I want nothing more than to be free
Free from the hate and from the ignorance
but do we really have much of a difference?
I wanted to be like the normal boys at school
but then i realized that working in the fields isn't very cool
No its not cool the heat is strong and unforgiving
But my parents continue to live the life they are living
to give me a better life to see me succeed
The land of oppurtunity the land of the free
but dont forget the brave. They deserve respect too
just like me and you
But its hard to respect a government that makes our mother earth into swiss cheese
Black gold is what they call it
but i can't deny that we are in deire need of it
But God forbid protests on sacred land
It's unamerican just get over it why can't you understand.
But i understand clearly unlike those kids in Syria
Gas covers those streets, can we allow them in? No they dont meet the Critieria
Lets help them out with bombs and guns
So that those kids can go back to have some fun
But what about our kids in Flint
Their water still unsafe but lets take a hint
59 tomohawk missiles straight from sky
$1.41 million a pieces someone is bound to die
But lets not forget our brothers stained in blood
funerals with tombstones covered in flower buds
some of them with dreams a future with no prediction
but they all have one thing in common No Conviction
I love this country that has given me so much
a school, a home, a job, and such
but so one sided this place can be
I still feel unsafe of what will happen to me
Oh how i love this coutnry, how i love it with glee
even when this coutnry may sometimes not love me.
