lyrics

These kids are having a hard time trying to like you, or even caring if you live or die. Too many cousins, too many uncles lives ruined just doing your job: Top-down terrorism for the maintenance of a racist empire. “Fuck the police” is the only time I hear them say “fuck.” They’re trying to sound tough. Mumbled like a prayer, soft and sacred. A spell to give them strength. Tensions rise when you come around (relax, be cool). Their mamas taught them to keep their heads down (Yes sir, No sir). Instruments of torture pass at eye level and they know not to give you a reason. They’re living a life sentence, born guilty. Any passing glance in the bathroom mirror serves as that reminder. How long can their hate and fear keep them safe?
