SYLEENA JOHNSON lyrics - Chapter 4: Labor Pains

Is It Because I'm Black

Original and similar lyrics
The dark brown shades of my skin only add color to my tears. That splash against my hollow bones, that rocks my soul. Looking back over my false dreams that I once knew. Wondering why my dreams never came true. [Chorus:] Is it because I'm black? Somebody tell me what can I do.. Something is holding me back, is it because I'm black? [repeat] In this world of no pity I was raised in the ghetto of the city Momma she worked so hard to earn every penny..Oh lord Something is holding me back Cause..Is it because I'm black [repeat] Like a child steeling his first piece of candy. That cost..Even in my corner somewhere I got lost Something is holding me back..I wonder..Is it because I'm black? Somebody tell me what I can do. [Bridge:] Will I survive or will I die. Keep on holding me back Keep on holding on Keep on picking on me Keep on holding me back Keep on holding on, keep on holding me back Keep on holding be back, I wonder why you do me like that But you keep on putting your foot on me But I've got a break a way, some how, some day, Cause I wanna be somebody so bad, So so bad, I wanna be somebody. I wanna be somebody so bad. But something is holding me back Is it because I'm black? Is because I'm because I'm black Something is holding me back, I want diamond rings and things

Dance Or Die

JANELLE MONÁE "The ArchAndroid (Suites II And III)"
Cyborg, android, d-boy, decoy, water, wisdom, tightrope, vision, insight, stronghold, heartless, ice cold, mystery, mastery, solar, battery Some will pull the gun because they want to be stars Snatching up your life into the blink of an eye And if you see your cloning on a street walking by Keep a running for your life cause only one will survive War is in the street and it's an eye for an eye Run on for your life or you can dance you can die She's praying in the sand like she's the last samurai It's a stick up stick up and a pick up pick up Telling lies and telling lies will put your face on fire Run and tell your friends to never dream, never win Ghettos keep a crying out to streets full of zombies Kids are killing kids and then the kids join the army Rising and a waking, yes sir here comes the sun March into the war and with the kick of the drum The wiser simians have got the bombs and the guns So you might as well keep dancing if you're not gonna run A long long way to find the one We'll keep on dancing till she comes These dreams are forever Oh these dreams are forever And if you wanna wake the sun Just keep on marching to the drums These dreams are forever Oh these dreams are forever Now I'm not saying it's better to bailar (Spanish for dance) You can pull the trigger or you can build you an ark My words are rather kind you keep them held in contempt Looking for a nine and then a droid you can tempt Zombie, zombie, zombie, where do dreams come from? A little bird is chirping and she's singing a song She's shaking em and waking em and giving em mas As the clock tick tocks and the bodies drop I'm gonna lay myself so far way down right in your chops Modern day example of the wolf vs flock Freedom necessary and it's by any means Frozen they were stolen all the kings and queens Sudanese and Congolese who put the roll in the rock From here to Sudan, Metropolis to Iraq It's a minute to the dawn and yet the sun ain't back It's still a war in all the stress and yes freaks will dance or die A long long way to find the one We'll keep on dancing till she comes These dreams are forever Oh these dreams are forever And if you wanna wake the sun Just keep on marching to the drums These dreams are forever Oh these dreams are forever Angel, blossom, gunshot, dodging, dream, bright, beat, light, breathe, live, help, give, focus, trance, wake up, dance! I'm praying for the man sitting without much time May he understand the clock will never rewind Wisen him and sharpen him and give him a motto hate no more, said he must hate no more You see the daylight comes into the kingdom But the kingdom's full of ignorant men Just keep rebelling away, you gotta dream it away Because the weatherman on TV ain't creating the weather This man wants to see another jubilation And that man wants us in emancipation And then there is the man who wants a stronger nation You see we really got to and i think that we ought to Protect the mind from degradation Sow in the seeds of education They run from us, are we that dangerous? There's a war in all the streets and yes the freaks must dance or die!

Gettin' It On

Common pull up a chair I want you facing me Your a long way from home now You've got your hand on my heart and its pumping up something stronger Can you feel it? And its me who will kick it and let it slide What i need is to hit it I can't let this pass me by Chours: We both keep playing where we don't belong Cuz everytime you keep turning me on We both believe what we need to But way down deep we know that all along So we just keep on gettin it on We're hanging out and yea i wanna play And im goin crazy Cuz im hangin on and i can't wait for you well i wanna rock you baby And its me who will keep it bottled up inside I try to pretend but i can't help the feeling inside Chours Im slipping down, and yea im sick and fast but i like it, i like it, i like it Chours (2x)

Mojo Pin

(J. Buckley/G. Lucas) I'm lying in my bed The blanket is warm This body will never be safe from harm Still feel your hair, black ribbons of coal Touch my skin to keep me whole If only you'd come back to me If you laid at my side Wouldn't need no Mojo Pin to keep me satisfied Don't wanna weep for you, I don't wanna know I'm blind and tortured, the white horses flow The memories fire, the rhythms fall slow Black beauty I love you so Precious, precious silver and gold and pearls in oyster's flesh Drop down we two to serve and pray to love Born again from the rhythm screaming down from heaven Ageless, ageless and I'm there in your arms The welts of your scorn, my love, give me more Send whips of opinion down my back, give me more Well it's you I've waited my life to see It's you I've searched so hard for

Black Crow

JAMIROQUAI "A Funk Odyssey"
He sees the stormy anger of the world And wants no part of it at all And as the weeping leaves of Autumn curl He feels the savage winter call See far below the dust of conflict settles on the hill Where there was no escape before And as he spreads his wings and soars up to another level He brings the icy prophecies of war Black crow, black crow, tell me where you really go When you fly into the sunset, high in evening sky, Black crow, black crow, tell me what you really know Will we flourish in this hurricane, or will we fall and die While children lose their souls and so much more To ragged armies of the field A vicious fanfare cries appeasing hungry savages To trigger that their fate is surely sealed I wonder if that black crow sleeps as day beckons the night Or if he even sleeps at all I wonder what he thinks of all the human traffic passing far below That's sturggled on the road for so, so long

Black Session

I sense infliction in the air It's only me I'm fucking up old times It's a remembrance Oh this Black session in my mind Oh the black I was too weak to fight Once more I let go It is a black session An invitation of sorts I keep on living in this my only wish That life will be good someday I keep on losing my sleep because of this Seems so hard just to stay So if you come by just this last time I'll be here And I will talk to you like If this had never been Oh this Black session in my mind Oh the black
