I've been trying to write this for a while but it never seemed to work out in my head the right way. This is the best way I could put it. This deals with the prevalent and obvious racism in the police system and the general attitude of racism in America (if anyone is curious, I'm half-black and half-white). Hope you enjoy.

I don’t think the devil is red or lives in hell,

Or is one sentient being.

Nah, the devil wears blue and walks among us on earth.

The Boys In Blue, are sworn to uphold the law,

I guess they all had their fingers crossed.


If you have color at all,

You’re not safe.

I walk in constant fear of the police,

I could easily be next, how long will it take?

Before I’m pulled over on some bullshit,

And shot on a “routine traffic stop”.

I look em’ in the eyes and know they wanna kill me.


We’re screamin Fuck Tha Police

In the streets while they become militarized,

And think they have the right to pull the trigga,

On every single person who looks like a nigga.

There’s innocent black youths dying in the streets,

In the United States of AmeriKKKa.
