Track Name: Normalized Death
It happens day after day after day
I'm not sure what more i can say
I question why no one chooses to talk about this
But I figure it's been embedded into our lives

I am no longer safe
Normalized death
I am no longer safe
Normalized death
Track Name: Pipeline
School to prison
Raised to fail
How do you escape
The poverty that you're in when nothing can change status?
The government doesn't help
Look at your surroundings
There is no other choice

Product of the environment
That couldn't care less about you
Where does the pipeline end?
When does the pipeline end?

Rely on 12
In the schools
Why are they there?
To maintain discipline
Rather than the admins
Criminalize the children
Subject to school based arrests

Inadequate resources in public schools
Overcrowded classrooms, insufficient funding
No child left behind?
Just push out the weak

Track Name: Respectability
You go to school, you get a job
But you cant escape the constant paranoia
The constant fear of black and brown

People want you to be respectable
But it's all bullshit, they'll still hate you
No matter how much you change yourself
You are what they fear

No suit. No dress.
Will ever change their perception of you
So stop trying
Track Name: Lost Child
You hate yourself and the skin that you're in
You want to fit in with a group of people
You can't relate to, only to realize it's impossible

Lost Child

You turn your back on your own
Make fun of your people
Only to impress a group of fools
Who don't give a shit about you
You're a lost child

Will you ever learn the error of your ways?

Lost Child

Regardless of what you do
You will always be seen as what you are
Lost Child
I hope you find your way
Track Name: Slander Me
We get killed with our innocence
Yet you claim we were no angels
Mass hysteria & public outcries
What did we do to get treated like this?

Slander me
Slander me
Tell the world you're better than me
Slander me
Slander me
That's the lie you want to believe

You gun down police
Yet you're gentle
You're quiet. You're misguided.
Your privilege protects you from the truth

Driven by racism
Driven by misogyny
Victimized from birth
Don't look down on me

When will brown bodies get the respect we deserve?
Track Name: Agents of the Machine
Track Name: White Silence
I know you see this unjust
You just walk by 'cause it doesn't affect you
You don't see color but you would deny the chance to be of color
You stay silent because talking about it would be tiresome

White silence is compliance
White silence is violence
You claim you're for equality but only when it affects you

I know you don't want to be bothered
So quit the fucking act
The new racism is the denial of racism
