chains, stakes and thangs
why can't you just tell the truth
too scared of whips and chains from watching these roots
listened to too much billy during holidays to go out and be with
scared to be strange fruits
BB king in the background
and your tv blaring the news
what are you learning if you keep turning to get the blues
glad you watching the upshaws
but you can't be listening
cause you ain't up naw
you still sitting
deciding between the remote and the game
to control a fake life with a fake name
that's mine
why u using it if you don't wanna
stake claims?
