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
death 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
nigga 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?
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/maraza/-/black-skin-pick-and-pay-the-price.html]
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 nigga 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
