Your silence is violence, while we disappear. Sit on your thrones while we’re incarcerated. These rose colored glasses enhance your vision, While we are under your feet, in disbelief. Sketch me a future,where I belong, Living and breathing,without any fear, No we’re not asking,asking too much, Give us a taste of that privilege, in your veins. We’ve had,we’ve had enough,we've had enough,we've had enough of this.

Don’t you look the other way! We’re swimmin’ in an ocean of poverty. Born and raised in the jaws of anguish We’re the poster boys of inequality. Born and raised in the jaws of anguish. What doesn’t kill you,makes you wanna Look the other way,look the other way, Even if it kills,you wanna look the other way. We cannot do this ourselves, We need the strength in numbers, We’ve seen the same results over and over, We need your eyes and ears, We need the strength in numbers, To shatter rose colored glasses,shatter rose colored glasses. What doesn’t kill you,makes you wanna Look the other way,look the other way, Even if it kills,you wanna look the other way. It’s getting harder to breathe We’re born, we’re raised, in the jaws of anguish.

High Horses 03:30
Take us away, to a better place, Where we can be free from all of this. They want our heads, they want our heads. We need a place, free from all of this. (The evidence is here) The future’s forecast is not looking great for us. We can do so,so much better than this. Oh it must be nice, To live with such arrogance ,such ignorance. Your patriotism is just a mask for your racism. This is not a drill, this is the ultimatum, this is not a drill. (The evidence is here) The future’s forecast is not looking great for us. We can do so, so much better than this. Get off your high horse and tell me the difference between the colors of skin pigmentation. We can do so much better than this. Expiry dates, they’re on our foreheads ,they’re on our foreheads. This is not a drill, this is the ultimatum, this is not a drill This is our refusal, this is our refusal, this is our refusal.

Nauseous 02:51
This little bubble,that you’ve been living in, guilt and rent free, I wanna see it crumble. It’s a lesson that you can’t seem to learn, what’s it gonna take for you to crumble? Do you have the ccc-capacity in your head to understand our suffering? Don’t help me understand, this sickness, in you, BECAUSE Your ignorance is making me nauseous, Your vile existence is nothing but a nuisance. This little bubble,that you’ve been living in, guilt and rent free, I wanna see it crumble. It’s a lesson that you can’t seem to learn, what’s it gonna take for you to crumble? Don’t help me understand, this sickness, in you, BECAUSE Your ignorance is making me nauseous, Your vile existence is nothing but a nuisance. Your ignorance is making me nauseous, Your tunnel vision is an act of violation. You’ve introduced new ways of torture, Patronized our mere existence, We don’t need anymore surveillance, Don’t you undermine our resistance. Your ignorance is making me nauseous, Your vile existence is nothing but a nuisance. Your ignorance is making me nauseous, Your vile existence is nothing but a nuisance. Your ignorance is making me nauseous, It’s making me nauseous, it’s making me nauseous, it’s making me.

They’ll sell you adverts to whiten your skin, Darken your thoughts,dampen your spirits. Profits are there to be gained, when we’re forced to live in such shame. I’ve fought the wars of my mother, I’ve learnt to diminish my voice, They’ll tell you this is normal, and extinguish the light at the end of the tunnel. I’ll sing this song,if it helps to ignite the flame. (They’ll sell you adverts to whiten you skin) (Darken your thoughts ,dampen your spirits) (Profits are there to be gained, when we’re forced to live in such shame) (Your silence is violence while we disappear) (These roses colored glasses enhance your vision)
