A Walk In My Shoes

Written By: Prophesee

Intro

I need you to close your eyes and open up your mind
I’m gonna need all of your imagination on this rhyme
I need you to close your eyes and open up your mind
I’m gonna need all of your imagination on this rhyme

Verse 1

I need you to sit still and pretend as if you can’t move
Ya negative one day old and haven’t been told just what awaits you
You’ve been given no voice or given no choice of what ya name is
But more importantly, you’ve been given no choice of what your race is
(Welcome to the world)
So right now ya mind is just an empty seed
And they say before the age of three, you’ll have no memories (Ain’t life grand)
But then you hear this hype about this white man, so frightin’
He comes and tell he controls ya life and ya trifling
Ya worthless, Your purpose on this earth is just to serve him
Says God won’t acknowledge you so I’m who you should worship
So now the world you know is a world of hatred, a world of suffering
There’s a darkness growing inside of you cause you never asked for none of this
The hatred displaces the rage as he shamelessly
Beats the sh** out you so he can tell you that you ain’t sh**
You’re thirsty but you can’t get no water till he say so
Life was the sh** when you was negative one day old, but now ya grown
You survived the beatings from the heathens, being cheated
All the screamings and the teachin that your life has no meaning
Being taken from ya family knowing you’ll never ever see ‘em
Though your wounds will heal in time, inside you’ll never stop the bleedin
Through the raping of your wife and the taking of your kids
Through the taking of your life and then he tells you, you can live
You’re free to go even though you haven’t one bit of education
No true knowledge of the world but now a monster’s been created
Could you possible have raised a loving family and loving kids
NO, love turned its nose up cause you was like them other kids
If apples don’t fall far from trees, and through all of these seasons
The harvest repeatedly freezes, and no one intervenes to help the farmer with his grievances
Then ya just part of the problem, The world is better without ya
So instead of downin’ someone, start asking how you can help
Cause everytime you point a finger ya pointing three back at ya self

Hook

Somebody tell me why they blamin me
They can’t see they just the same as me
I can’t believe that…
They keep on watchin my every move
But it’s ok because I’m watching you too

Come take a walk in my shoes

Somebody tell me why they blamin me
They can’t see they just the same as me
I can’t believe that…
They keep on watchin my every move
But it’s ok because I’m watching you too

Come take a walk in my shoes (6 x’s)

Verse 2

I got a butterfly effect from a mile high perspective
It ain’t summer time yet so why am I sweatin
What the next man, best man, rest of them getting
I’m still wrestlin but hey, I will not let it
Happen again, see breezes in the wind
Carry past, present, future, inhale, breathe it in, yeah
They say the flutter of a butterfly’s wings in the east
Cause storm in the west so I guess all things
Are connected through this domino effect
That this hailstorm called life brings, I see it, I scream
Like wakin up, havin flashback and realize that you’re in the wrong dream
Come see what I see, As my soul’s born on African Plains
Where the storm come after the rains gone, ok
I see the psyco born, that’s my brother named Ken
Came home and he left me blood stained, huh
That was the birth of envy; Murders, just the first of many
Economics is your brother’s purse of pennies
In pursuit to make em yours, will arouse the words of many men
Different skin, different faces, different cases, same dream
When we realize we’re all the same, we’ll realize that we’re all to blame, huh
The present is but a ripple of the past on this pond called life and so I ask
Who’s skippin the stones huh, Say who’s skippin the stones
And why won’t they leave me alone, huh
The present is but a ripple of the past on this pond called life and so I ask
Who’s skippin the stones

Hook

Somebody tell me why they blamin me
They can’t see they just the same as me
I can’t believe that…
They keep on watchin my every move
But it’s ok because I’m watching you too

Come take a walk in my shoes

Somebody tell me why they blamin me
They can’t see they just the same as me
I can’t believe that…
They keep on watchin my every move
But it’s ok because I’m watching you too

Come take a walk in my shoes (6 x’s)

Verse 1

Woke up Friday morning 6am, I’m feelin’ right
Made it through another week of work without losin’ my mind
Come on high five; Wait till tonight, We gone get live
Have a good time, I know that’s right
So I step off into work, my boss is tryna kill my vibe
Ain’t gone let you get the best of me, It’s best you step aside
I made it through the day, let’s celebrate
Another after work occasion, Phone is ringing, Where we meeting
First rounds on me, what ya’ll drinking

I’m zonin’, we on it, we gone get, get toasted

Verse 2

I’m feelin’ nice and my buzz is on, The dj’s playin’ them jumpin’ songs
Said we gone party like nothing’s wrong, The night is young and we just begun
Un, Un, Un, Hey, Hey, Yeeeaaaah, Yeah
(Sippin’ on this magic potion, got me feelin’ so macadocious)
Switch up, jump off on the smooth tip, Gotta find me a honey I can groove wit
She move it like she gone lose it, Bartender another round for cupid
He got me so into you, Another shot of this pimpin’ juice
And ain’t no tellin’ what we gone do, Said grab ya girls and I’mma bring my crew

Bridge

The club’s closin’, we ain’t through, The party’s just beginnin, true
Tell a friend to tell a friend, The afterparty’s at my crib
We ain’t finished, we just chillin, ain’t nobody trippin
We gone kick it till the sun comes up

I got some Crown & some Remy, Patron and some Henny
Gray Goose with the cran, I got that juice and that Gin, Some brews in the fridge
And you ain’t gotta leave, I got them red bulls if you need em
We gone kick it till the sun comes up

Hook

I’m feeling so, you can’t touch me, I’m invincible
All my problems, I’mma let em’ go

Sippin’ on this magic potion, Got me feelin’ so macadocious

All my problems, I’mma let em’ go

Verse 1

They say there’s a reason for everything in every dream
They say there’s a way to explain things we’ve never seen
They say there’s a right & wrong, but they’re the ones who write the law
We don’t stand up and fight at all; sometimes I think we never think
For ourselves; how can you go and kill a stranger
Aren’t we all God’s children, when did you become his favorite
Did the colors on that flag or that country that you fight for
Promise you something after death that you would trade your life for

Hook

Take me to your leader, introduce me to your preacher
I’m your student, teach me teacher, danger: someone’s trying to reach us
Take me to your leader, introduce me to your preacher
I’m your student, teach me teacher, danger: someone’s trying to reach us

Sleep, Sleep, Now Sleep, Sleep
Sleep, Sleep, Now Sleep, Sleep,

Verse 2

They say get your education, they teach us so well and all
Then how come most people can’t learn to think for themselves at all
If knowledge is power and power lies in the hidden truth
Then all of the power lies in the hands of a hidden few
Through 12 years of programming, obey with no questions asked
Deceit is removal of your desire to understand
The product of institutions, tell us what to think and do
Looks like we have a problem Houston, it’s time for another plan

Hook

Take me to your leader, introduce me to your preacher
I’m your student, teach me teacher, danger: someone’s trying to reach us

Bridge

It’s been said that I’m just slightly off my rocker, got some problems
And this vodka just don’t seem to be causing me to resolve em
I’ve been following footprints in the sand, leading me to the ocean’s shore
Tempted to test the waters, voices saying come in and close the door
Confused and I don’t know for sure just where this trail is leading me
Reading the writings on the wall, only meant for me to see
I’m tuned into a frequency much lower than that of which is human
I can sense the aroma, but don’t know just what the witch is brewing
It’s been proven blissful moons make Christians move to institutions
Who’s to say the few insane aren’t gifted since they’ve seen the future
This would truly mean that all is lost once the darkness falls
And all of yall’d be locked behind the walls inside the monster’s ball
Time is calling me, offering reparations for my impatience
Telling me he can resurrect me where fate no longer affects me
We’ve been expecting a blessing, waiting patiently under the shade tree
But keep that between me and you cause they might think we’re crazy

Hook

Take me to your leader, introduce me to your preacher
I’m your student, teach me teacher, danger: someone’s trying to reach us
Take me to your leader, introduce me to your preacher
I’m your student, teach me teacher, danger: someone’s trying to reach us

Sleep, Sleep, Now Sleep, Sleep
Sleep, Sleep, Now Sleep, Sleep,
