Lyrics

What is it like to be in my skin
You have no clue
They talk about this skin and that skin
but all they see
is black and brown
Hands up just shoot
Every color except you

Gunned down in our home
Gunned down in the street

Years later
Nothing said
Just hatred
Being distributed to black lives
That everyone seems to think
That that WE share

Land of the brave
No
Land of the Free
Is everyone free but my color when you speak
No one seems to understand what’s it like to be me

I don’t know

I’m bout to set the city on fire
I’m bout to set the city on fire


I’m bout to set the city on fire
They wanna expire a young
Black kid like me
That got the desire
To make it out alive
one day and inspire

All we needed was love
All we needed was acceptance
Now we ain’t accepting this
And we ain’t accepting that
Hands up don’t shoot
Please stop killing blacks

Ooooo

I’m bout to set the city on fire
I’m bout to set the city on fire


Say their name
Every time I open
Up my chat

Say their name
When they
Slaughter
An unarmed black

It’s a fact
The system
That we live
In protects
Every color
When videos
Give them
Proven facts

Everyday there’s
A story of a killing
And no one
Seems to
Understand
The way that we feeling

What did we do
To deserve
this treatment
Who am I
To cause such a burden
In greeting

The birds
And the beezes
Standing on our necks
I still can’t breathe
And you still ask
What’s the meaning
Do you really see me
Can you really hear me
Do you really care

We bleeding
We torched
We can get up

We bleeding
We torched
We can get up


I’m bout to set the city on fire
I’m bout to set the city on fire

I’m bout to set the city on fire
They wanna expire a young
Black kid like me
That got the desire
To make it out alive
one day and inspire

All we needed was love
All we needed was acceptance
Now we ain’t accepting this
And we ain’t accepting that
Hands up don’t shoot
Please stop killing blacks

Ooooo

I’m bout to set the city on fire
I’m bout to set the city on fire


Who am I
to believe
That possibly
Me and you
Could’ve been
Things just don’t
seem real

Growing up I hated
the skin that I was in

They wanted me
to be more like them

So I could
just fit in

Man knoll

It was never that simple
Maybe we
Could’ve existed

A long time ago
In agreeaance
Before the lynchings

Wonder why we
Keep bringing it up
Because it’s still
Going on

We see it everyday
Recorded on a phone

This Picture perfect
System
Just Not that sturdy
We don’t threaten
Your lives
We threaten
Just
Your money

Because we
Found a way
To beat the
system

You just
Don’t get it
And it’s okay

We finally getting
The picture

As an African American

Imma set this pace
Lacing up my sneakers

To outrun you up
in this race

Face to face
With these demons
I promise you
We gone be out here
Voting to stop
this game
Marching like
Martin

( like Martin )

I’m bout to set the city on fire
I’m bout to set the city on fire

I’m bout to set the city on fire
They wanna expire a young
Black kid like me
That got the desire
To make it out alive
One day and inspire

All we needed was love
All we needed was acceptance
Now we ain’t accepting this
And we ain’t accepting that
Hands up don’t shoot
Please stop killing blacks

Ooooo

I’m bout to set the city on fire
I’m bout to set the city on fire
