Maraza - Black Skin (Pick and Pay The Price) lyrics

Pick and pay the price yeah Pick and pay the price yeah pick and pay the price yeah pick and pay the price yeah all my people in the Southside won't you go and raise your hands up high all my people in the Northside won't you make sure you touch the sky all my people in the Eastside, let the sun rise on the inside all my people in the Westside, stay blessed a'ight Mama told me there'd be days like this i know my daddy hoped i never witnessed days like his see days like this are the hardest to choose between being an artist and a man who's still angry about the d**h of Chris Hani they took away our honey but we feel the bee stings I'm try'na get this money not the burden it brings but more than these things, i want my dignity somebody witness me, Amen Amen can no longer save men Amen, black skin ain't enough to detain men Amen, tell me who changed the rules of engagement? the same men who made me suffer their entertainment you follow me 'round the isle, you stalkin' me from the back[?] but tell me are you looking for a thief or you're looking for a black man? yeah, funny how being black can give a n***a the blues a trolley full of food became a trolley full of clues "We know you stole something 'cause that's all you folks are capable of" if you see a black man, know there's danger involved "now show me that reciept, i'm immune to your deciet" "you people deserve defeat, that's all you deserve to eat" "your 'pant-sagging' black self could'nt get this money the right way" 'cause the right way is the 'white' way all my people in the Southside won't you go and raise your hands up high all my people in the Northside won't you make sure that you touch the sky all my on the Eastside, let the sun rise on your inside all my people on the Westside, stay blessed i found myself a Pick'n' Pay asking what if i was white, what if my hair was bright, my eyes were not as black as night what if my past was leaden with victories not strife and if my name was Jaden would i need to prove i'm right? would i be searced against my will? aye! can i pursue my happiness without reminding you of constitution hill what's the deal? what's the deal? the [?] i'm living in come from me as a black king i'm settling the settler like Dinuzulu i knew that i'd be thrown to the sharks i degraded Great Whites i never thought one of the sharks would be Sisulu (God damn) bheka chief you see, it's not that i didn't hear you make a mockery of my abuse at the hands of racial inequality It's just that the sound of your grandfather turning in his grave was harder for me to ignore and i don't mean to be spicy, but i hope Robert Sun calls the sun 'ilanga' it shines brighter that way and i hope that he'll grow to call his son 'indodana' he'll be a fighter that day 'cause MarazA and Sphamandla may not be the coolest names but atleast they were not forced upon me for the convenience of Hellen Zille's colonialist cronies so claim your name Black Child and own it! all my people in the Southside won't you go and raise your hands up high all my people in the Northside won't you make sure that you touch the sky all my people on the Eastside, let the sun rise on your insides all my people on the Westside, stay blessed a'ight i know that the oppressor wanna see me go inside but i don't wanna go inside my haters wanna see my failures and my victories [?] they know my heart gold, they don't know what's cold inside they wanna see me down, they don't wanna see me winning they hate i make my money and i feed my next-of-kin and i make my mama grin when i give her bit of green and she keep my concience clean and my mama garden green my n***a told me i was the talk of the whole town [?] i said "what you mean?" they said there's another scandal that the media need to handle i said "that was not a scandal" he said "what's your Twitter handle?" so we searched it and the the talk had moved away from that debate i mean it's 2017 ain't nobody talking race comrades by face, but only white face but if it's a black man then you judge him by face we can do better one day, day, day, day one day we can do better one day, day, day, day one day
