You think you can stick cuffs on my back
Because of my classification by your kind
You think because you see the pigments of my skin
You can see what's on my mind
The labels you bring
Only produce hate and slang
Your “upholding of the law”
Only brings these feelings of shame
Shame to be who I am because of my peoples' past
Making us deterred if only you saw the world through these
Eyes of mine
Then you'd understand what you bring into my world
