The color I have worn

Was it the day I was born 

Or the color I have worn

Was it the day I was born 

Or the color I have worn

Said the man

Make America great again

Wasn’t America the place where a innocent black boy was hang down the tree

Wasn’t America the place where a black pregnant woman was hang down the tree

Man why he acting like his history teacher was absentee

Disagree disagree the people who voted for him made disagree with me

But I will let they words be 

It won’t hurt me  

Isn’t and wasn’t America the place where freedom is said but you don’t see

Was it the day I was born 

Or the color I have worn

Was it the day I was born

Or the color I have worn

Was it the day I was born

Or the color I have worn

Every day I wonder

What makes him different from the others 

How is he allowed to curse out my color 

Lies has no age

They told me America is the best place in this stage 

Came to see things for myself guess what I’m a nigger in a fucking cage

Was it the day I was born 

Or the color I have worn

Was it the day I was born

Or the color I have worn

Was it the day I was born

Or the color I have worn

My Nagger my nagger be in a cage like gorilla 

Where I’m from I’m a killer 

Better understand temptation it’s in my blood forever forever 

Remember remember  

I’m not brilliant or clever

I’m a nigger who finds prison peace and pleasure

Don’t show me no tender 

Send me to my chamber

Unite me and my cage to be together together

Me not surrender surrender 

Should not be your splendor 

Trump fuck all your members

I’m a nigger who walks on embers

I will see myself to the river 

Come after me you will be sever

I will pray for your coming it’s so cold but why weather

I will tear your face then add it in to my jacket leather 

Or the color I have worn
