RECOGNIZE OUR BLACK LIVES

 
Everyone wants to march
But not everyone will stand

Everyone wants to
But not everyone can

Everyone wants justice?
But it seems thatís JUST US

Everyone wants to march,
But most times we canít

WEíRE TOO BUSY TRYING TO CATCH OUR BREATH!!!
TOO BUSY HAVING TO RUN!!!
TOO BUSY TRYING TO STAY ALIVE!!!
NOT HAVING TIME ENOUGH TO LIVE!!!
BECAUSE YOU WONíT SEE THE VALUE OF OUR LIVES!!!
YOU WONT RECOGNIZE THE TEARS THAT WE CRY!!!
WHEN WE VOICE WE'RE ANIMALS!!!
YOU WONíT RESPECT A SILENT AND PEACEFUL PROTEST!!!
WHEN WE PLACE MONEY INTO YOUR POCKETS THEN YOUR SATISFIED!!!
THATíS WHY YOUíVE CALLED BLACK UGLY, BECAUSE YOU CANíT HANDLE THE LIGHT OF THE TRUTH!!!
SO WE MARCH AND STAND UNTIL ALL BLACK LIVES ARE RECOGNIZED!!!
