IAMSMBDY   ( I Am Somebody) by Michael Burnz 

V1 - What it do my brother  
God ain't cool with how we treat one another 
 I am somebody I'm a son I'm a brother  
I'm a father I'm a nephew I'm a soldier I'm a lover  
I'm a man G*tDam*t  respect my life  
and I know who I am can't lie to me twice  
educate over hate let love leave the debate 
 the future is its taking the clock is ticking away  
the light is shining a blaze the truth is taking the stage  
some people been wearing masks before the first covid case  
we in the streets let it be known  
Wailing  like Bob Marley them revolution  
fist in the sky a million strong /  another 10 waiting for word to get it on  
black and white locking arms yellow, tan , brown palms  
it just feels like the storm 

Chorus: 
We been asking for attention 
But aint nobody listening  
Our daughters coming up missing, can anybody tell me why 
I show love like im suppose to be  
But no love is shown back to me 
I thought we were one family hey, can anybody tell me why  

V2 - all lives matter that makes sense 
 but black lives don't get the same treatment 
 I am not lesser I'm 100% 
 I'm the descendant of kings and Prophets 
 Royal blood of the royalist continent  
my lineage is warriors doctors and scientists but 
 that's easy to forget when they treat you like a slave  
don't dismay I'm going to bring it back like a DJ  
what you're talking about, y'all sound cray 
Let the  love in it'll take the pain away 
 we shine the Light put it on display / for the people them lost in the disarray 
 unity is all we need every generation every color every creed  
if one of us oppressed then none of us is free 
 you can hear us down the street just as loud as we can be 

Chorus  

Bridge: God Bless humanity / i just hope they include me / one blood we all bleed/ one love one community

V3- Organize my brother ,power is with the people when we tight with another 
 it's divide and conquer like a mother /they some suckers trying to keep the truth wrapped in undercover 
 make room for the lovers no filters no buffers  
we loud we proud and we down the cause of ruckus yo 
 from the usher to the governor 
 respect color

do it for the culture!
