It’s gotta be fiction, when I wonder why we work against each other,
It’s gotta be the love that we lack for one & other
I thought someone said we was brothers,
But your skin color seems to say otherwise
& the differences between us prevents us from seeing eye to eye.
Man, sometimes i get to thinking about it & I start to cry,
I’m tryna be a man, but rushing the process because I think I might die,
It’s gotta be fiction,
out here on adventures,
exploring the land it’s so extra,
miles on these nikes, so much pressure
I’m really just worried about high blood pressure
how dare ya?!
educate, appreciate, that’s how u levitate, 2
higher grounds, more vibrant sounds, we gotta elevate, they tryna’ keep you down, it’s frustrating how, the type of love we take, for granted now…
i wonder why they don’t make a few changes now,
vacation time, that’s how i spend my mine…
i see we in space now.
breaking through society’s canopy’
hanging on to this little light inside of me”
i got this hot fiyahh’ on me…
it’s so hot, on my block.
I feel your ways rubbing off on me…could you please stop?!
just tryna’ stay shaded under this tree yeah, yeah,
& be one with the breezee, it’s all I can feel,
they say, slow & steady wins the race,
but i’m down on my luck working at a faster pace,
my love, i don’t need no more space…
i been lost
i been found
sometimes within the same day
do you feel the same way?
i just want everyone to make it home safe,
so they can rest & reflect
pray & prepare for obstacles that may interject
that peace of mind that we strive for,
my love for life
starts to drift away,
the shade of my skin seems to dictate my days
thoughts of a better tomorrow seem to slip away,
but I stand my ground hoping today is the day’
out of the box
casted with the rocks
a dime a dozen,
& strike nerves
