Watchers Watch

They are watching
No movement unseen
Fear is breeding
Total surveillance
A prison of our own making

The bricks of freedom
Chipped away
Right before our eyes
Used to have a voice
Now silenced by the watchers

Running on empty promises
A little hope
Is more destructive
Than no hope at all
Cell door slightly ajar

Wave goodbye
To any rights
You thought you had
Believable lies
Have brought us here

Don't shoot

I live in a world with blood stained memorials of young black men,
There is blood on our government's hands, and they don't give a damn.
While there's thousands of us dying in the streets, crying justice and peace,
They're getting richer and sending in swat teams.

George Floyd, Bothom jean, Those men were innocent,
George was shopping, and Bothom was eating ice cream.
There will never be peace for us, and justice is a fever dream.
If there is no justice, there is no peace.

The president wears a crown of thorns and sits on a throne made of the dead,
And the police would rather spread violence and bloodshed.
There is no peace left in this dried up carcass of a world, and we've known that.
It is less dangerous to be white than it is to be hispanic or black.

The government sits on candy coated doped up lies while we are dying,
And the virus is killing us by the thousands in a day.
America has always been corrupt, home of the free, land of the brave.
There is blood on our streets, staining women and children.

We will never truly be free, so we must burn it all down.

Trump's America

I live in a world where it is better to be white than it is to be black,
And a city that condones putting babies in cages.
I want to cry, and tell everyone not to look away.
I want to scream until my throat is full of blood, force them to look at what they've done

They will support babies in cages, and black men being shot,
because they looked like the suspect.
But once they can no longer get haircuts, or go to church,
They say that they are imprisoned, They riot.
If black people were to protest they would be met with rubber bullets and mace,
But white people are met with kind police and an occasional disapproving face.

I live in a world where Mexicans like me are seen as lazy, and uneducated,
And told that I am illegal, even though I was born right here.
I am spit on, and called a wetback.
This is not my world, nor my society.
I do not belong in this fucking place, filled with hate.
