Can’t Sleep

Can’t sleep and my life is cruel
Fight so I could once again sleep without being fooled
A night­mare either way I look!
Awake leave my dream and relent­lessly live the truth
Trayvon killed killer walks
Blood on street take em back
Deport­a­tions record high
Brown and black tar­get drills
Racism alive not implied
press denies
Truth and dream are too dis­tinct
So I don’t place em side by side 

Can’t sleep so I work with these tools
Arms ready keep it steady we all know what to do
I’m a go-get­ter the moons giv­ing light I get her
Get it? Night is bet­ter let her settle enter now or nev­er

Drone attack Muslims die
Queer com­munity is time
Polit­ics the same blame game see they haven’t tried
All the same rights denied
All is good in us we trust
Though though to get it right, we’re gon­na need the light of the night! 

It drops deep as it does in my breath
I nev­er sleep cause is the cous­in of death 

From Brown Is Beau­ti­ful, album released 01 August 2013
Pro­duced by Prin­cipe Cu
Fea­tur­ing Bam­bu

The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
