How can the absence of pigmentation separate people from the same mother Life bribed the hell out of us, it took your only brother And now hell we bring to those who deserve it not And this fight the people who are suppose to be fighters a quiet All we need is a riot, a silencer to mute this awful song Pink eyes, Purple eyes, doesn't make one less African It doesn't take the humanity that we all bare Because the thought of you being black enough, you act as if you don't care People dying because we think less of them, claiming that life ain`t fair -And still we ask why God never calls back It's not because of what we have but what we lack, Humanity lacked by an human, and yet you stand proud People may never change how they look at you But you can how you look at you, and maybe you can change how they glare Regardless of what people spit on you, no venom can penetrate your confidence The world will never shut its mouth, be you, be proud, be arrogant To the world that only sees you as a separate, You just have to open up your mouth Let your tongue roll wild to whatever direction east west north or south And be loud and proud as you increase the sound.
