lyrics

I'm here looking in this mirror saying that I want a change.
It's what I want.

I'm here looking out the window saying that we need a change.
It's what I want.

(Don't tell me, "listen to your song" because it isn't the same.
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting-)

Mouths full of roaches, poison in our Folgers.
It's hard being hopeful, when everybody's hopeless.
Lies on the TV, but everybody's watching.
"I don't write these stories sir I'm just tryna clock in".
The media has boxed in, all of us we're falling for.
All the trash we're taking in, it's Jesus Christ I'm calling for.
But won't nobody listen. Do you still believe news?
Do you still believe the schools, when they do not believe in you?
And all these grown men in the capital don't represent us.
And though I love my country, half our lies I can't defend 'em.
You ever thought, it's the land of the free,
But we live in a system that enslaved our minorities?
I don't want to alienate us, 'cause the issue isn't race.
The issue is keep the problems at a distance place.
The issue is we're living, but we don't purpose.
If nothing's really worth it, then does that mean we're worthless?

(Don't tell me, "listen to your song" because it isn't the same.
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting-)

Game.

(Don't tell me, "listen to your song" because it isn't the same.
I don't wanna say your love is a waiting-)
