about

Look I'm tired of being quiet
Tired of being bigger
Tired of blacks dying
Our murderers get acquitted 
Ain't tired of being woke
I'm just trying of having hope in a 
System that won't let me cope

I'm tired of injustice
I'm tired of being bitter
I'm tired of thinking
If I'm killed I'll be a villain
Ain't tired of being woke
I'm just trying of having hope in a
System that won't let me cope

lyrics

Man I'm so tired
I mean, I've been woke so long that I'm wired
Both eyes open for so long they on fire
Red lines few with a hue of sapphire 
Don't know if it come from rage or from crying
Felt so strong for so long I'd be lying
To say every verdict ain't hurt me like I'm fine
You could put my pain on loop like I'm Vine
The Media got noose to use and you buying
I scream out "Black Lives Matter" you say "Nope."
Ambrose meme like you think it's all jokes
"But what about black folks killing off black folks?!"
Even when that happens then "All  Lives" is ghost (All lives is...)
Politicizing my hope
That one day I won't exist within a scope 
They say it's a hate group. Hate who?
If white supremacy ain't hate...

Look I'm tired of being quiet
Tired of being bigger
Tired of blacks dying
Our murderers get acquitted 
Ain't tired of being woke
I'm just trying of having hope in a 
System that won't let me cope

I'm tired of injustice
I'm tired of being bitter
I'm tired of thinking
If I'm killed I'll be a villain
Ain't tired of being woke
I'm just trying of having hope in a
System that won't let me cope

Folks say Deuteronomy explains the curse
The reason why black people been chasing the hearse
Get back to The Lord, I have faith that that works
But might that imply that cops doing The Lord's work?
It hurt too dealing with friends that want debate
I feel like a fool cause it's cool they don't relate
But if they don't hear my fears about my fate
Are they really real or am I the one who's fake?
Backlash from my country really annoys me
Trash bag all my folks then cry loyalty
Don't matter if you're a drug dealer or royalty
Get shot before you can provide lawyer fees
They fear for their life
At the same time I'm fearing for my rights
My right to live. My right to be. My right to love. 
It's obvious that I can't have none.

Look I'm tired of being quiet
Tired of being bigger
Tired of blacks dying
Our murderers get acquitted 
Ain't tired of being woke
I'm just trying of having hope in a 
System that won't let me cope

I'm tired of injustice
I'm tired of being bitter
I'm tired of thinking
If I'm killed I'll be a villain
Ain't tired of being woke
I'm just trying of having hope in a
System that won't let me cope

Either I'm a genius or I'm highly delusional. I think it's the former, which probably proves the latter.
