"Shades of Blue"
[Verse 1: Vic Mensa]
Color of morning pee coming out of the sink
It's 2016, who would think
Kids in America don't have clean water to drink?
Like they cut the EBT, took 'em off of the link
I read a story about a woman with her daughter in Flint
She got lead poisoning from showers in the morning
When the governor switched out the pipes to bring the water in
To the city river 'cause he said they can't afford to get clean water
So now the poor people get the shorter end
Of the stick, ain't that some bullsh*t?
Shorty thirsty, he just bought his fourth fifth
It's lead in the water gun, he dying from a full clip
Now you've got toddlers drinking toxic waste
While the people responsible still ain't caught no case
I don't get it man, I just ain't wit it man
They got Damn Daniel distracting you on Instagram
Back again with the all-white media coverage
They do it over and over like remedial subjects
The people with the least always gotta pay the most
We the first to go when they deleting them budgets
Can a n***a get his basic human rights?
Is that too much to ask? Should I say it more polite?
And everybody broke so we in the same boat
But would they let that b*t*h sink if we was white?
It got me shades of blue
