Pounding headache
Balled up fist
Swingin into a new day
Cuz the same old shit exist
Efforts not recognized through others eyes
Gotta get up
Kiss another ass just to survive
Sick of tryin for nothin
Wearing a fake ass smile
Just to get in good with the man
Can't come as I am
Cuz that's just too hood
Too much attitude, too hip-hop
Matter of fact, I'm just too damn black
To be anything other than
What they think I'm supposed to be
But I gotta take it and face it
Rearrange it my own way
Hateful things they say,
Just motivation to exceed 
Beyond thier expectations
Disrupting thier stereotypes
Distorting social class
Cuz I won't be satisfied
Till a white man is kissin my ass!
