Verse
If it wasn't for the colour of my skin I'd have have so many things
It doesn't matter if its day or night I'm on my knees
I had to watch Muh momma struggle for some decades I hardly sleep but I still got a dream
I still remember when I had to go to sleep with empty stomach
Muh momma gave me she said its gonnah be alright
I look up to the sky forgive me but I see nothing
Somebody tell the mother earth its time to give birth
They put us on the front while they taking sit back
Let's start the world afresh and this time please man no Adam, Eve
I was this close man to see Muh closet going down
I'll never try to be somebody else, and if another ass ain't nothing like Muh skin man I swear to God won't even try please it
Those years he went to prison
I see a human being inside a beast belly
I think this world would be a better place without a leader
Just look at how they lead us
Where does it leave us
Now the y'all act as if they know Jesus
I see em niggas drinking holy water but I just wanna know who's been praying for it
Man if u could wear da same shoes on Muh feet you wouldn't even stand still
I see em sisters bleaching skin they wanna look like them
Uh black is beautiful don't wanna talk about what's common
I got some old wounds and yet they still bleeding
Muh heart is on the ground and yet its still beatin uh
What else do they wanna take Muh case I'll put it into rest

Hook
Is it because I'm black
They throwing dirty on Muh name
Is it because I'm black
Uh is it because I'm black
Should I blame it on the colour of Muh skin man ey
Freedom is what I never had now they wanna take our land ey
Its been the same mistake and oh God I never learnt ey
Oh God I never learnt

Verse
Time is going but we ain't
The position is still the same
The motion is pain
Still got ice covering our hearts there's no hope it will break
Hoping for hope in faith ,holy praying
God free us from these holding chains
A planet of peace ,to get there love is the only way
It's so possible if we march as a human race but in reality its so
Impossible cause they still feel superior than us ,continuing to do everything in their power to see us down ,like we dont matter ,look at em streets its murder ,education, keeps to benefit the privilege most ,still wonder why
Some in the ghetto no longer see it as a ladder to use for succeeding ,no education certificate proving we do qualify to living better ,not all of us get them,some get the popular one of death that our parents accept ,tear up,looking up to the sky hoping the lord can hear us,no fam no Law can help us ,our colour skin is seen as a sin,now how the hell can we have love for saints ? While we're being labeled as sinners father these killers kill us cause by colour we differ, be smart and check what we bleed up there ain't no difference, they should know better cause they the reason hope that's getting sweep down the street of grief
By out tears ,in our hearts resides a lot of fears why is it because we black ? A threat to the white so they got the world extremely cold ,not fair to our sons ,these cops kill them showing care
In two countries history's suddenly repeating its self currently in SA a white farmer forcefully put a brother in a coffin alive I wonder is it because he black !? Obviously yeah
2016. Was such a painful hardening year
Police eliminating brothers in the US
I see annihilating the Culture they trynna do that
Teachers don't touch on the topic of race
Well aight little ones coming after us
We'll be the ones to school them

Hook
Is it because I'm black
They throwing dirty on Muh name
Is it because I'm black
Uh is it because I'm black
Should I blame it on the colour of Muh skin man ey
Freedom is what I never had now they wanna take our land ey
Its been the same mistake and oh God I never learnt ey
Oh God I never learnt
