lyrics

You said that I could be anything
Accomplish all my dreams
Like you was on my team
Can’t understand why you always be taxing me
Make it so hard for me
Why ain’t the law for me?
After I pledge my allegiance to Stars and Stripes
You see me as nothing more than a stereotype
You see my people in the most negative light
We just want a fair chance and a dog in the fight

After the rallies and activist efforts
Perceivable progress that looks like it’s better
Throughout history, it’s been no mystery, it’s been so plain to see that you’ll never

You'll never love me
No, no, no, you'll never love me

It’s like 400 years was a mere misunderstanding
You don’t like em dark but you love to go tanning
Ask your plastic surgeon to make you a copy
Put braids in your hair change the way you be talking

Wealthy plantation for us and our figures
So no matter how high you still just a "NIGGA"
News flash for all of y’all hope someone told ya
Without us you do not have one ounce of culture

Everyone wants to be but they don’t want to be
The most hated and the most imitated
Throughout history
It’s been no mystery
it’s been so plain to see that you’ll never

You'll never love me
No, no, no, you'll never love me

You'll never love me
You'll never love me

Well, well, well
Would you believe that they tried to tell me
That they was concerned about my well-being?
Mentality they tried to jail cell me
On the subtle tip without the yelling

Broadcasting on the tv screen
Be a democrat and not the other thing
Interest rates
We can’t wait
To spend cake
And handshake

With the ones that wish to harm us
Like cattle used to farm us
Dangling the carrot in front of our face
That’s the way that they disarm us

From being all that we could ever be
That we could ever see
That we could ever dream
Got the light skins and the dark skins arguing, "Who got the better genes?"

You can ball harder than LeBron but you don't really need to own a team
Why you wanna own your masters when we paying you enough just to sing?
The Most High been calling y’all
That’s the definition of letting freedom ring
Left a voicemail, told the same tale, just like you no they’ll never
Love me
