Scary Magicians/New Generation
Black Top Hat
Making me take my eyes off the true problems
Imaginations, sweet Candies and gummies
Chips and Alcohol on every corner
Holidays to celebrate Easter Bunnies
Pagan Rituals replaced Negro Spirituals
My White Counter Parts were taught to hate me in their hearts
But to crook a smile to me when they see me from afar
Putting their hands in the pockets with holes
While another strips me off my riches and Gold
Now mines are in their pockets.
And you tell me to prick my finger from picking on cotton
Living in houses their fathers and grandfathers were granted when they were only pheasants
So that my fore fathers and fathers before them can stay oblivious
Knowing no more than an adolescent
Earning nothing in exchange for nothing
Now you tell me that I should be appreciative
For the life I get to live
It seems they lived longer than we did
Killing ME, Her and Him
No actual reason or representation of why
Just because you have fear in your eyes
Brain tissue deteriorating, clogged from all the lies
Thinking this can be done and no one will tell a soul
This world was never fair to us
Lets get one fact told
Let me rephrase that, not this world this soil
This land you say I call my home...
Could give a Fuck if I become successful!
Could give a Fuck if I lie dead in a tomb!
Doesn’t matter if I’m educated and never hurt a soul
Doesn’t matter if Im helping raising my younger nephew
Doesn’t matter who Iam, or who looks up to me for inspiration
You think Iam of cattle, You think that Iam of sheep
I can be thrown in the Dirt, and replaced each season
Working Jobs and Shifts you want completed
But would never wish your own child to dare take
Laugh in my face for wanting a career
Talking about me to my peers
Separating me from the affluent
Like Iam not even here
I can’t go to a Gas Station?
I can’t go the Movies?
WIithought some cop trying to pursue me
Taking the chance just to find something on me
If I don’t have it, you will plant it
If I put my hands up
You say, he’s pulling a gun
I can’t even catch the Bart anymore to work?
I can’t even go see the fireworks?
I will die basically is what you’re saying right?
My rights as a black person has recently been stripped
How is it now as we have a black president
That these defenses have been happening towards are communities so quick
Every week theres a different black child that has been killed for no apparent reason
None of these children even had a track record
But these random persons no murderers harming us
keep seeming to get acquitted, no charges, it seems to be making them more famous regardless
What they seem to forget is we are a strong people
When we decide were fed up we take action
They think that we won’t rebel
And if we do, well go to jail
But you said that free speech was the 1st amendment due to us
I guess you didn’t mean to the ones who are more than pale
I don’t know what is to come to this land
The Magician begins to make waves with the wand in his hand
And he swirls it around until he thinks of another distraction
He can give to my people again
But right now I feel that we are tired of watching this same ol show
We are starting to form, and the lies told will be unfold
There’s a new generation of people coming up again
Who are willing to sacrifice all, so that our Justice can finally be implemented
