Did You Hear?

by Profound

What the fuck are you talkin' about?
Yeah, I'm American
But I have no clout!

Just because I'm American
Doesn't mean I'm free.
Look at all the shit I deal with 
Just because I'm Black me.

Being American and being Black
It's all about 
What you stand for -
And that is a fact.

It's 2003 and you say
"I should be glad."
Motherfucka you just don't realize
What it's like to be "Had."

Just because there are no "Signs",
Saying, "Colored", or "Only white"
Does not mean
I don't have to fight.

Doctor, lawyer, scientist,
Yeah, this is true.
But all I am is a "nigger"
When it comes to you.

You pull the strings,
You control the flow;
In the near future things will change,
I just want you to know.

I will be free
The full meaning of the word.
The time is upon you - 
Oh, you mean you haven't heard?
