I am the black man and you are the white
I am the deviant and you're always right
I am the darkness and you are the light
I am the black man, you're the white
Yeah I go, I'll be good living only if I'm dying, hide your head in your hand
You hear no, see no, speak no no no, don't understand
I am the blackness, I am the dark
I am the alcoholic beast in the park
I am the girl who sold her body to the dark
I am the truth of it, you are the hypocrite
I am the dirty and you are the clean
I live in places where you've never been
I eat the garbage and you eat the cream
I am the dirty, you're the clean
You kick me in the bus, get away of me and have been to me
You hit me, kick me, tell me I am the grey Shirley
I am the blackness, I am the dark
I am the alcoholic beast in the park
I am the girl who sold her body to the dark
I am the truth of it, you are the hypocrite
I am the white man and I paint you black
I am the traitor, but I put you on the whack
I am the coward and I shoot you in the back
I am the white man, I paint you black
Yeah, I am the good living only if I'm dying, hide my head in my hand
I hear no, see no, speak no no no, don't understand
I am the blackness, I am the dark
I am the alcoholic beast in the park
I am the girl who sold her body to the dark
I am the truth of it, you are the hypocrite
I am the blackness, I am the dark
I am the alcoholic beast in the park
I am the girl who sold her body to the dark
I am the truth of it, you are the hypocrite
Blackman!
