Jon Connor - True Colors

rate me

Until the day we touch the sky

Most of my niggas getting high

I feel you like

Most of my niggas getting high

We riding like

[Verse 1:]

I guess I was the one that you could call naive

The world full of smoking mirrors

World full of broken mirrors

We hurtin' like open blisters

Little brother that ain't know his sisters

World colder than the coldest winters

This world so backwards

We don't know our own potential

We could change the world

But then you say I'm in no position

Sometime you just need an ear

But ain't nobody there to listen

So I can't just hold this pencil

And be like I don't know them niggas

That's like rationalizing with the killer

Cause he ain't know his victims

Passion that I just can't hide

Hurts but it just ain't mine

Knowing my neighborhood

Ain't always looked that way outside

It's like they bored with us

Elementary schools get boarded up

High Schools getting boarded up

Instead of warning us they ignoring us

I'm living my vision with my eyes closed

My dream, struggle ain't always what it seems

I tell my people to play this song

For the days that you can't take it

But always rest assured that you gone make it

But until then

Until the day we touch the sky

Most of my niggas getting high

I feel you like

Most of my niggas getting high

We riding like

[Hook]

When the sun comes up

And the moon goes down

I'll be around

With your heads held down you can't see the light of day

Most of my niggas gettin' high we riding like

[Verse 2:]

What up lost girl, trapped in this lost world

Outside my window doesn't resemble what people have fought for

Unprepared for this to be the song you skipped

Cause we can all admit we call it quits

When we don't wanna hear we wrong as shit

Little girl all of six, living room talking shit

Mama told her shut her mouth

She turned around and called her bitch

Laughter filled the room they think its cool until she twenty-two

Dropped out of school

Cause you ain't fixed the problem that's in front of you

Fuckin' dudes having babies like it's a requirement

It ain't just her that's getting fucked its the whole environment

She intermittent with dudes she tell 'em it don't feel right

And now she pregnant before she know what sex supposed to feel like

We turn our heads to lost young men like it's the usual

Then talk about what we should have did at his funeral

Ain't that a bitch, we hypocrites

Guess with me it's hit or miss

We slaves to our own ignorance

My people feel this shit

Until the day we touch the sky

Most of my niggas getting high

I feel you like

Most of my niggas getting high

We riding like

[Hook]

When the sun comes up

And the moon goes down

I'll be around

With your heads held down you can't see the light of day

Most of my niggas gettin' high we riding like

[Verse 3:]

See I done seen too many people go before their time

That's why I can't just write no bullshit in every line

I speak my mind because it's far too many of us dying

Say it's too late to change the world but ain't nobody trying

And if I don't sell at least I'll die with a clear conscience

Too scared to take a stand, ya'll just stand around watching

This shit I'm seeing on the tube and I just can't accept it

Cause if I do my daughter will be 16 and Pregnant

And I'm aware that words can be used as a weapon

You wanna see some ass than let me see some cash

Think that shit ain't connected?

This shit is hard without a question

But talk is cheap

So the least you could do is pay attention

In this recession

I'm not a conscious rapper

I'm a rapper with a conscience

And all I want is progress

If you could help me with this process

I'm just a human I'm just famous on the side

Now let me see them hands in the sky

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah

Until the day we touch the sky

Most of my niggas getting high

I feel you like

Most of my niggas getting high

We riding like

[Hook] x2

When the sun comes up

And the moon goes down

I'll be around

With your heads held down you can't see the light of day

Most of my niggas gettin' high we riding like
