Black Rage

Chorus:
I woke up like fuck the world today
Internet stream another brother or sister slain
I feel like I'm drowning
I'm too deep in pain
I'd do anything to exchange
Black love for this black Rage
Black love for this black Rage
I'd do anything to exchange
Black love for this black pain

Verse 1:
I woke up like fuck the world
Fuck my job
Fuck my homies
Fuck myself and fuck my girl
Fuck the crooked cops
Fuck this room this couch the bird in the trees fuck your I singing about
I'm nothing to em anyway
Fuck your ur gratitude
Just another nigga with an attitude
I talk aggressive
My presence brings fear
And have purse clenching
Crossing the street
When I'm near
On a black night
In a black hoodie
Or a suit and tie
A black guy
What if he blacks out and takes my whole life
They tell I fucking ruined my own legacy
I sold my own people to the devil for weapons and drink
So I could live good and
Yeah I'm that guy in other words
What about black on black crime
A dead beat
A monster a damn creep
So you run when you hear the stomp of my damn feet

Chorus:
I woke up like fuck the world today
Internet stream another brother or sister slain
I feel like I'm drowning
I'm too deep in pain
I'd do anything to exchange
Black love for this black Rage
Black love for this black Rage
I'd do anything to exchange
Black love for this black pain

Verse 2:
Even the sister say I'm no hood
They're independent
They don't need a man for anything
So my existence is no longer essential
I'm either in prison
Switch and loving other men or lacking ambition
Or have deep seeded hate for black women
They're way too aggressive and I like my women submissive
All the hands waving constantly under interrogation
I can't take it so I just flee the situation
Now her Uncle Sam taking care of my family
And to see my children I need rights for visitation
But only if pay the state men
So they garnish my wages
Until I was put me on permanent vacation
I get behind the money gets late then
Now I have record for these child support payments
In and out court every other 30 days man

Chorus:
I woke up like fuck the world today
Internet stream another brother or sister slain
I feel like I'm drowning
I'm too deep in pain
I'd do anything to exchange
Black love for this black Rage
Black love for this black Rage
I'd do anything to exchange
Black love for this black pain

Verse 3:
My black brothers don't trust me now
He'd rather run up with pound
Than to help me out
When a brother down
Or they covet and desire
Material things that I've acquired
House, car, money or my attire
Ignorant the spiritual drain it took on my soul to get this high up to Zion
And with time can cloud 9 em
Cadillac white wall alpine and the finest linen
That's for my old players yo I ain't forget ya
Nod ya head one time when you see me
Each one teach one
Reach one because you use to be one
Be the example the youth they need one
Be the change you want to see the world it need some
Be the man your father wasn't the women they need us
Our roots deeper the new leaders
All we have to do is step up

Chorus:
I woke up like fuck the world today
Internet stream another brother or sister slain
I feel like I'm drowning
I'm too deep in pain
I'd do anything to exchange
Black love for this black Rage
Black love for this black Rage
I'd do anything to exchange
Black love for this black pain
