lyrics

When chains are wrapped to your ankles strapped
So you can’t walk straight or present your hat

Your boss is clear he wants to build that track
But the whip that hits you should slaughter his back

See this is the thing that I don’t comprehend
Is it ‘cause he’s white that he’s got the upper hand

Skin colour don’t tell a shit about man
Put this in your head you’ve got to understand

You may think this comes from another time
But let me remind you that the world ain’t fine

You may think this comes from another time
But let me remind you that the world ain’t fine
(X4)

People get shot in the United States
For wearing a hoodie wrong time in the day

Don’t you think this is absurd, observe
They get hurt they don’t deserve that for sure

Straight forward you gotta change you thinking
Be partners and friends ain’t a sin

Skin colour don’t tell a shit about man
Put this in your beard you’ve got to understand

You may think this comes from another time
But let me remind you that the world ain’t fine

You may think this comes from another time
But let me remind you that the world ain’t fine
(X4)

(Ol’ dollar mama sequence)
(Guitar Solo)

You may think this comes from another time
But let me remind you that the world ain’t fine
(X4)
