I know you're blue 
Don't mean you have to shed red
I know I don't look like you
Or talk like you 
But I speak all the same
I breathe like you
I aspire just like you
To be me
To protect myself from you blue 

I know you're white
Don't mean I cannot be black, too
You tell me that y'all better
I cannot see that because I am
tired from trying to figure what's justice
