Artist/Band: Bilal
Lyrics for Song: U, Black Maybe
Lyrics for Album: Other Songs - Bilal



Can't come around, they gon' wanna bring you down

No one knows just what's inside, doing dope and doing time

Why they messing with your mind? Black maybe



I heard a white man's yes is a black maybe

I was delivered in this world as a crack baby

Hard for me to pay attention and I act crazy

Gotta get over from the tip, I watch the fat lady



Sing a song on how we guerrillas in warfare

And I'm the Kingest Kong, they say we dreamin' wrong

Them same strips that them older cats lingered on

Now the Walgreens is gone, hope is killed fiends are born



We leanin' on a wall that ain't, that ain't stable

It's hard to turn on the hood that made you

To leave be afraid to the same streets that raised you can aid you

What other black births came suit

The rage up in Harlem and the south side



Brothers is starving with there mouth wide open

Floating across state

Got the work, got plans so they can move weight

The fate of the black man, woman and child maybe



Can't come around, they gon' wanna bring you down

No one knows just what's inside, doing dope and doing time

Why they messing with your mind? Black maybe



Can't come around, they gon' wanna bring you down

No one knows just what's inside, doing dope and doing time

Why they messing with your mind? Black maybe



He had game since he used to hoop at chattum

Neither the ghetto, nor defenders could trap him

The stones had his back and they'd pat him

He was living a life they couldn't fathom



Colleges getting at him with all type of scholarships

Even if he went they knew he'd leave college quick

For the pros, the one from the hood that was chose

The black rose that grew in the jungle



A humble stud still had rumble in his blood

Women all around giving him trouble love

You know the love when you up they down

'Cause you wrap a ball they round, your wind is their clown



Dudes in the circle he known for years

Shared biz and cheers but chose different careers

When paper and fame came they ain't know how to react

Them same studs shot him in the back, now that's black maybe



Can't come around, they gon' wanna bring you down

No one knows just what's inside, doing dope and doing time

Why they messing with your mind? Black maybe



Can't come around, they gon' wanna bring you down

No one knows just what's inside, doing dope and doing time

Why they messing with your mind? Black maybe



When we talk about black maybe we talk about situations

Of people, of color and because you are that color

You endure obstacles and opposition



And not all the time from, from other nationalities

Sometimes it comes from your own kind

Or maybe even your own mind



You get judged, you get laughed at

You get looked at wrong

You get sighted for not being strong

The struggle of just being you

The struggle of just being us, black maybe



Black maybe

Can't come around, they gon' wanna bring you down

No one knows just what's inside, doing dope and doing time

Why they messing with your mind? Black maybe
