Be the change you wish to see
Set trends and allow others to lead,
young and Black in America thats two strikes against me
But, I keep moving as if my skin was light
Keep pushin' against all odds
Shootin' against the moon just to land among the stars
Predicted to be another statistic
I got a plan that seems unrealistic
If your dreams don't scare you, then you not dreaming big enough
I'm from a place full of lies and deceit
People will do anything just to eat
They will push you down, so they can live worry free
Hard to sleep at night when you not livin' right,
Have you ever went to bed stress free?
Is freedom really free?
Am i really the only me?
Another me, could it be?
Is being a number better then being free?
Is freedom a dream or reality?
