Protect the Future!

lyrics

Dont look at me different cause the color of my skin
(straight up)
Cause what you see on the outside is not within
it’s a sin, to judge and hold a grudge against your kin
And your friends, we trying to make some ends
When does it end, they killing on CNN
We protest and do it over again
And we can’t win
I’m getting tired of it, finna bend
around the corner with my friends
With weapons breaking em in yeah
And anybody need help, take em in
You worried bout it, you try to come save em then
You aint gon do it, you protecting and serving you gotta prove it
Hurry up skip skip lets get it, come on, move it
Straight up cause the clock still ticking
The cops still killing and a lot of real ones feel it
Gotta kill it, or we gone be trippin at any minute
Without a care you can tell em that we did it
Yeah


Chorus
We must, provide
And protect, the life
Of yours, and mine
The black, future
2x

SkyBlew
I Paint The Sky,Blew!!! But still a black boy
comfy in the skin that I'm in, you think we lack joy?
NOPE!
Breaking stereotypes through soundbites
Africa to Crown Heights
there's black, light, brown types
Chocolate boy & proud, my spirit is not destroyed
my kind you can not avoid!
We still here
and beautiful like the woman who adopted me
an Ebony Queen, who Dreams properly
Black as Gladys Knight on that midnight train
du-rag over the dome, soundwaves in the brain
Mind of Huey with the swagger of a Riley
came from the boondocks, raised off the Tribe & Isleys
Inventors, the soul is within us
I ain't talking sunday dinner
melanated on the surface & the center
Some view us as sinners, but we're winners
no pretenders, the original vendors of black splendor
remember?


CHORUS
We must, provide
And protect, the life
Of yours, and mine
The black, future
2x
Mega Ran

Hold fast to dreams, for if they Die
Life ain’t nothing but a broken winged bird
And I wanna fly
Past the racists who frown when they see brown faces
Smile at em, cause hate can’t drive out hatred
Love is the weapon, that I choose to wield
We been fighting tooth and nail, every day I hear another gruesome tale
About a black death, for infringing on they privileges
Stay limited, or I soar like Mae Jamison
Black like licorice, Unapologetically
Genetically, I can’t hold back or let it be
Black like the fist on my Afro pick
It’s why my naps so thick, why my cap don’t fit
Or Why when I walk by cats activate they car locks,
Blackness is acceptance to the School of Hard Knocks
cap and gown In the back of the crowd
Hear me rappin it loud, that Im black and I’m proud
Come on

CHORUS
We must, provide
And protect, the life
Of yours, and mine
The black, future
2x
