Live From The USA
Live from the USA, Another black boy was born today
Dropped in this world from god Up against all odds from his first born day
Plenty of smiles he was born to play Till education board took his soul away
Not knowing the Tv controlled what the owners say
Doomed to presume faith in one candidate consumed by the media landscape.
Confused by the what path to take
Looking into a pond for answers beyond An online database
Too many sources to validate
Right-click, copy-paste Click-bate provided by a conglomerate
His hands shake he might break
Easy to see the world in monochrome
Little is known especially the opinions of his own
Pockets full of stone
Groupthink so he don't feel alone
Victim of remote control in his own home Aches from the carpal tunnel syndrome
Provided by his phone
Not hearing the clocks metronome.
Headaches from no breaks
His time waste he might break
Lost in a maze with a daze from the haze
Slaving to pay for a place to stay
Food and water in the same plate
Juggling his mental state while trying to get a stake in this rat race
Uncle Sam never lends a hand so Damn for his fams sake
The future seems so opaque For black and browns in the united states
Know they get the shortest take It's not hard to articulate
What the people say, Hoping someday it will change But until then he remains
A pond in the game Correction a slave with no chain
Collecting spare change
Life in the USA, is this his fate?
He might break.
