New Age Noose

by 144Play


Lawd, Lawd, Lawd
I lift up my faith to you
My trust given to thee even more
Though my accusers crowd around to view
Teary eyes and a nervous twitch
New age noose placed around my neck
Ainít this a bitch
As the laughter and name-calling increases
All because of my blackness
Paranoia never ceases
Where is the justice
Dreams snapped
The noose tightens
Gasping from the lack of knowledge
Promises flicker in the wind
Battling to maintain my composure
Emotionally I flip and flop
No longer able to control my bodily functions
Released
My eyes bugged wide open
Ignorance is all I see
While hanging from this racist tree
There are many in the white manís house behind locked gates
As our future dissipates
