Byron Bank – Bended Knee lyrics

This public service announcement is brought to you by
The goodfella Byron Bank at Breakin’ Bank Records

You're crazy it is for you to kneel for the national anthem
They can’t phantom the way you feel, with your hands behind the wheel
Quick to fire from the steel, but only get a suspense
Then back upon the streets, with a slap on the wrist
It’s unfair to be judged, and categorized a nigga or thug
No matter what your skin color is, they don’t give a fuck
They burning tiki torches yet America, it’s okay
All this one sided shit is bluntly in our face
It’s a low down dirty shame, when nobody feels your pain
Won’t acknowledge there’s a difference, everybody ain’t the same
Something wrong with these days, these nights are getting hanged
It’s really injustice, we all look the other way
What more can I say through this beautiful music
Lace them up like Nikes and really go and just do it
Everyday I sit and wonder will this happen to me
Thank the Lord everyday and I be

I’m taking a knee like Kapernick
Say what you want, don’t give a shit
Taking a stand, it’s really part of the plan
And all this prejudiced shit, it makes me sick

Hate it or love it, I be the voice for the people
United we stand but still divided by people
The house and the senate, republicans and some democrats
These segregated sections, now you see it, it’s all facts
Pardon me for speaking the truth
But do you have any Grey Poupon to really go with this noose
Forget my freedom of speech, my volume change it to mute
Never heard a word I said, only what I would do
That’s ridiculous, you know it is too
But if you don’t then it’s fine, please pay me no mine
I got no time to debate, I’m just moving along
If it’s right then it’s right but if it’s wrong then it’s wrong
See the problem is, nobody listens
Only leans a deaf ear but don’t hear the difference
Everyday I sit and wonder will this happen to me
Thank the Lord everyday and I be

I’m taking a knee like Kapernick
Say what you want, don’t give a shit
Taking a stand, it’s really part of the plan
And all this prejudiced shit, it makes me sick

There’s a disconnect, call it disrespect
Blame it on the flag, that’s that simple shit
Call me ignorant, that’s a hit or miss
I’m going dumb but smart nigga don’t fear your shit
There’s a disconnect, call it disrespect
Blame it on the flag, yeah that’s that simple shit
Call me ignorant, please that’s a hit or miss
I’m going dumb but smart nigga don’t fear your shit
Wise enough to know, that everywhere I go
Things never change, through this little microscope
Often I just try to cope in this world without a coat
But these cold winter seems to carry over to summer
What more can I say through this beautiful music
Lace them up like Nikes and really go and just do it
Everyday I sit and wonder will this happen to me
Thank the Lord everyday and I be

I’m taking a knee like Kapernick
Say what you want, don’t give a shit
Taking a stand, it’s really part of the plan
And all this prejudiced shit, it makes me sick
