Life Song Lyrics

Life Song Lyrics


Life is taken from the BLEE EP

INTRO

Yo talk to me,
I feel your pain brother walk with me
Don’t take it too awkwardly
If I tell you that I love you

CHORUS

Life’s a little harder when you’re black
But I ain’t got a problem with that
I’m in love with the skin that I’m in
And nothing in this world is gonna change that

VERSE 1

Eleven month’s of mystery
Now here have one for your history
Still got that slave ship misery
But I guess that’s my choice though silly me
Keep getting them barefoot flashbacks
Look at that, we still can’t get that cash
After all that was raped and was stolen
What happened to that rule that was golden
You wanna let the past be the past but
Too many industries profit from that
So when you try to apply those blinders
Hollywood goes and distributes some new reminders
And if you talk about it it’s a bag of noise
Everybody’s like stop being paranoid
Why you trying to be a victim, enjoy life
Yeah, it should all be so simple right

VERSE 2

Apparently we fit profiles of most criminals
And when we get time, it’s never minimal
See nowadays the oppression’s subliminal
Why, coz of the size of my genitals?
Or is it that bounce in my walk
That fills you with genocidal thoughts
I mean that sacrifice on the cross
Was for all of us right or am I lost
You feel like you’ve gotta shout to be significant
But as soon as you shout you’re a militant
Then you’re left with no choice but to suppress you
Until that point the only channel to express through
Is the angry one, middle finger to em all
They never loved me so I don’t give a f… who falls
Yeah, that’s the game that we can’t escape
They don’t even make a move and it’s check mate

VERSE 3

We could front but the residue still remains
The crack of the whip yo it still stings
We still crying out for pain
Looking at the soul man it’s still stained
It just gets manifested in different ways
See nowadays we see success in getting paid
No longer looking out for each other
No longer looking out for our sisters, our brothers
But it’s not just the black community
It’s worldwide there’s no pride in finding unity
How did so much fear and hatred get injected
Into our state of mind we need a new perspective
This temporary matrix called life
Is wasted if spent caught in strife
When happiness is so easy to achieve
a true understanding of love is what we need but

OUTRO

A little harder when you love
You feel like the only one who does
Everybody’s caught up in their careers and making money
No time for a smile or a hug
