Fine Apple - Just Bring It lyrics
This is for my sisters that were raped and smacked
This is for my brothers that were stoned to death
For years now the coloured man has undergone oppression
Just because his is not the same as your reflection
Yeah, you think it's written to bring us all pain
Well where does it say to bring the Holocaust again?
I feel disgusted by your bloody lies
Any excuse to kill a bunch of black guys
You're too engrossed in anger yet you don't realise
THAT OUR HEARTS ARE THE SAME
AND WE BLEED THE SAME COLOUR!!!
We hide beneath the shadows avoiding persecution
Our women and children all fear the execution
We go to the law and ask for assistance
(Huh!) They just increase the damn resistance fool
The Ku-Klux Clan all runnin' from the FEDs
'Cos they slaughtered every Black and put bullets in their heads
So who do we turn to other than these frauds?
I'll tell ya- one person and his name is God!!!
Why? I'm asking,
'Why make us shudder?'
'Why should we lock our doors and close all the shutters?'
'Why don't you treat us like your sisters and your brothers?
'COS OUR HEARTS ARE THE SAME
AND WE BLEED THE SAME COLOUR!!!'
WHY DON'T YOU TREAT US LIKE YOUR SISTERS AND YOUR BROTHERS, 'COS OUR HEARTS ARE THE SAME...OUR HEARTS ARE THE SAME...OUR HEARTS ARE THE SAME...OUR HEARTS ARE THE SAME AND WE BLEED THE SAME COLOUR!!!
JUST BRING IT!!!
