"This World We Live In"

[Verse 1: Cloud.9]:
Racism is still alive and they will never let it die
No respect for human life these humans laugh as humans cry
And as hard as we try not to feed on all the lies
The truth is hard to find and yet we're feasting all the time
Now there are blue lights flashing in the rearview
Should you let them catch you?
White hoods turned to gold badges in hot pursuit
Will I be the next hashtag?
A thought that occurs while I'm hoping that they won't shoot

Nobody is promised tomorrow today
God told me that applies only to the human race
The humans of this race are quick to take your breath away
Over something trivial such as drugs or money

Where are the people who supposed to be protecting me?
And why do I feel like they're the main ones oppressing me?
Rejecting me, subjecting me to conditions where I just cannot breathe?
Arresting me for no reason other than to fill their cemeteries?!

Nobody is promised tomorrow today
God told me that applies only to the human race
They'll kill you where you stand over where you're from
How you wear your hair or your complexion
Someday I hope to find myself in a better place
Thinking to myself "man, there's gotta be another way
A better way. Surely, there will be brighter days?"
We're waiting on the sun to shine

[Chorus]:
So rain, rain go away
Come again another day
Don't you mess up our parade
March on 'til we're finally saved
From rain, rain that you spray
From the pistols on your waist
Baptize us in our blood
How much 'til you've had enough?

[Verse 2: Cloud.9]:
Sorry that I shouted, but surely that's not a death sentence?
Oops, guess I was mistaken then what in the f*ck is happening
With this world that we're living in granted violence has always been
Around
But for stupid reasons that serve to confound me
Bullets from your guns, found their way into my back
Desperately I tried to run, yet you claimed that I attacked
I was just a citizen, but you saw that I was black
But you saw that I was black
All you thought was that he's bad to the core
You refused to see me for what I was or could be
And the woman that I love and now my family
The only thing they have of me are memories
They're left incomplete as I'm dead in the street
Gunned down with no time to mourn
Because by the next time another child is born, another soul is gone
How do we carry on? How do we remain strong?
We can't just sing this song, no

[Bridge]:
I won't let you fall apart
As hatred grows in your hearts
I'll be the light in the dark
And shine my love upon you
And I will shine bright
Just for you each night
And when we unite
The sun will finally rise!

[Chorus]:
So rain, rain go away
Come again another day
Don't you mess up our parade
March on 'til we're finally saved
From rain, rain that you spray
From the pistols on your waist
Baptize us in our blood
How much 'til you've had enough?

[Verse 3: Shiki (TMNS)]:
Ain't tryna be another statistic going ballistic
I'll teach my son that it's most important to be authentic
I'll tell him that he's not "being white" if he's a chemist
And watch your back because some people are opportunists

My views are not the newest , passed on by my forefathers
Had to watch their fam and friends slaughtered then became martyrs
With every verse I author I'm making a new charter
Burning my impression in the world yeah I gotta solder

Crushing these boulders news shocking like it's Emolga
Another brother pulled over
Shots fired they leave him smoldered
Another file in the folder care less bout his diploma
These officers drunk off that Jim Crow aroma

The only thing that matters religion and skin color
But personally I have much diversity in my brothers
And honestly I think if we really just loved each other
Instead of persecution there'd civil revolution

Let's put end to destitution, and this wicked institution
Politicians preaching their pollution
Let's work to end it right now
I will proclamate loud
My quest for equal treatment of every person around

[Bridge]:
I won't let you fall apart
As hatred grows in your hearts
I'll be the light in the dark
And shine my love upon you
And I will shine bright
Just for you each night
And when we unite
The sun will finally rise!

[Chorus]:
So rain, rain go away
Come again another day
Don't you mess up our parade
March on 'til we're finally saved
From rain, rain that you spray
From the pistols on your waist
Baptize us in our blood
How much 'til you've had enough?
