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)
