Intro 00:04
2.
Needless, posturing Singled out The only person in the thick of it Palatable like your favourite exotic dish, not white but just right Representation Is not justice Visibility Doesn't mean we're done Until we are free We're none of us free
3.
Deranged as a box of frogs You have no say In what guides our Oppression You owe me you owe me you owe me you owe me you owe me You owe me You owe me Pay back your debts Guilt costs nothing Rack up a line, the wretchedness of your lineage leaves a trail You owe me you owe me you owe me you owe me you owe me You owe me You owe me Guilt costs nothing Guilt costs nothing Guilt costs nothing Trauma lives forever Trauma lives forever (Guilt costs nothing) x2 Trauma lives forever Trauma lives forever Guilt costs nothing
4.
My self through your skin My self through your eyes The dots don't connect Selfhood through a throw of the dice x3 Subject to a broader Understanding of liberation Praxis under scrutiny Actions under lock and key I'm free: me; I'm free: me Object to a lesser Understanding of existence My being under attack Face and name present stereotypes I'm unfree: me; I'm unfree: me My self through your skin My self through your eyes The dots don't connect Selfhood through a throw of the dice x3
5.
Bleak times Rife with Misery Leaving me With nothing to hope for Creature of habit Creature of change Hoping for a brand new day Nihilism is not a force for betterment But I have Nothingness Nothing, nothing to give Fading, fading away Nothing, at bay Nothing in me Naught
6.
Living amongst a status quo Feeling excluded, on the margins Only way to survive is assimilation But I know it's not the way Assimilation = Elimination One less of the likes of me Makes white supremacy stronger Hierarchies of power Fighting one another Who is whiter? In the end we all lose Survival tactics But who ends up surviving Cognitive dissonance Remind me: for whom? Assimilation = Elimination One less of the likes of me Makes white supremacy stronger Stay together The only way I can think We can fight this
7.
Disassociate 02:09
Disassociation Disassociation Disassociation Disassociate Please, I can't see myself Disassociate I can't recognise me Losing track of myself Vague as a cloud
