They Put Kids In Cages

They put kids in cages…

I might as well tell the truth because I already know they going to come for me.

They put kids in cages in the land of the free, home of the brave. They tell you these great propaganda lies to your face.

I know death is promised but why must we dig our own grave?

They put kids in cages…

They shoot teens in schools…

They shoot us in these streets…

We lost humanity

We lost empathy

Everyday it’s getting harder and harder to find the light.

Fuck my potential if it’s ever a threat to a woman’s current safety. Fuck my mental if it’s ever in agreement with putting children in cages.

Hear no evil

See no evil

Speak no evil

I hear this evil

I see this evil

So I gotta speak up on evil

There’s so much to care about and it’s difficult and draining to care about it all at once.

We are surrounded by evil

I want to be the light.

It’s getting harder and harder to find myself.

They put kids in cages

This is multiple generations of history repeating themselves.

In classrooms they rewrite the history that they teach. That’s the benefit of wealth.

They put kids in cages…

They shoot teens in schools…

They shoot us in these streets…

I make myself feel the pain.

I never want to become numb to it.
