Στίχος 1:
Μην κανείς δεν θέλει να ακούσει τον πόνο μας
Αυτό είναι το πώς αισθάνομαι όταν είμαι ρίχνεις μέσα από αυτά twitter σχόλια, όλα νιώθω είναι βροχή
Μπορούν να μου λέει να το ξεπεράσεις είναι παλιά
Αυτά τα πράγματα δεν υπάρχουν πια
Αλλά αυτό δεν είναι σωστές, όταν κοιτάζω σε αυτούς τους δρόμους
Γι 'αυτό είναι πραγματικό, όταν νιώθω σαν να coulda μου ήταν

Άγκιστρο:
Ο άνθρωπος μπορώ να σας πω πώς νιώθω τώρα
Αχ αυτοί wanna ξέρουν πώς νιώθω τώρα
Νιώθω σαν να coulda μου ήταν
Νιώθω σαν να coulda μου ήταν
Όλοι γίνονται κατ 'εικόνα του Θεού ξέρετε
Όλη μας τη ζωή πειράζει, όραμά μας είναι απένταρος
Αισθανόμαστε αιτία του πόνου που ήταν εδώ πριν
Ποιος είναι αθώος δεν ξέρω
Αλλά coulda μου ήταν
Νιώθω σαν να coulda μου ήταν

Στίχος 2:
Δεν ήξερα Mike Brown
Δεν είναι γνωστό Trayvon
Δεν ήξερα Sean Bell
Αλλά ξέρω ότι πάει
Δεν είναι γνωστό Oscar Grant ή Tamir Ρύζι
Δεν ήξερα Eric Garner
Αλλά εγώ ξέρουν τη ζωή
Αξίζει περισσότερο από ό, τι λέει στην οθόνη της τηλεόρασης
Μισώ Πήρα έναν μακρύ κατάλογο, Σας Finna δείτε μου ουρλιάζουν
Αιτία Νιώθω σαν να μην δούμε εμείς οι βασιλιάδες
Φτιαγμένο για να κυβερνήσει σαν Αυτόν, νομίζουν ότι είμαστε ενδεείς φίλες
Δεν ήμουν εκεί όταν πυροβόλησε τον άνδρα
Δεν μπορώ να λύσει υποθέσεις, Δεν θα πω ότι μπορώ
Αλλά εγώ ξέρω ζωή ως νεαρός μαύρος
Μαντέψτε δεν μπορώ να είμαι τρελός ότι κάποιοι δεν καταλαβαίνουν
Αλλά ίσως θα κάνατε
Αν έχετε κοίταξε τη ζωή μου και στάθηκες όπου στάθηκα
Χρησιμοποιήστε τα μάτια μου για να δούμε αυτούς τους δρόμους
Είναι πάρα πολύ πραγματικό, όταν νιώθω σαν να coulda μου ήταν

Άγκιστρο:
Ο άνθρωπος μπορώ να σας πω πώς νιώθω τώρα
Αχ αυτοί wanna ξέρουν πώς νιώθω τώρα
Νιώθω σαν να coulda μου ήταν
Νιώθω σαν να coulda μου ήταν

Στίχος 3:
Εικόνα μου ως έφηβος
Διαλέγοντας ποτά στο κατάστημα, όταν έχω δει
Το ταμείο κοιτάζει, τότε κραυγές
Επισημαίνει στο ισχίο μου και εγώ είμαι δει λέει
Αλλά κρατήσει ψηλά, Δεν είναι γνωστό πως ήταν ότι τρομακτικό
Και εγώ δεν ξέρω ότι θα μπορούσα να σας πυροβολούν με ένα βατόμουρο
πολύ περίεργο, that he saw me as a thug
Όταν Ποτέ δεν είχα αλιεύονται μια υπόθεση, ποτέ δεν έκλεψε ή αγοράζονται φάρμακα
Ή πώς αγώνα τη στιγμή που μου πέταξε σε μια επίδειξη
Γεμάτος χαρά, Finna ραπ για ένα δωμάτιο γεμάτο από παιδιά
Έξω από τότε θεωρώ ότι είναι ένα όπλο στο πρόσωπό μου
Χειροπέδες στα χέρια μου, pat κάτω στη μέση
Είναι το ίδιο ol, ίδια όλης
Θα ταιριάζει την περιγραφή της ποινικής που ξέρουν
Μου έδειξε την εικόνα, ελα
Αστειεύεσαι? Εμείς δεν κοιτάξουμε σαν
Well the cops thought we did if you looking right
Κάθε μαύρος ξέρω
Πήρε ιστορίες όπως αυτές που, αποκομίζοντας ό, τι δεν σπείρουν
Όταν αναλαμβάνετε ένα κακοποιό από το άλμα
Δεν πειράζει αν δεμένο με μια αντλία
Κοίτα δεν ξέρω αν ο Mike Brown είχε τα χέρια του επάνω
Αλλά Γράφω λέγοντας homie Είμαι σταθεί
Και είμαι να σας πω αισθάνομαι ματιά σε αυτά τα δρομάκια
Και να πω ότι είναι πραγματικό, όταν νιώθω σαν να coulda μου ήταν

Άγκιστρο

Στίχος 4:
Skies αίσθημα γκρι, μάτια κόκκινο
Μαύρο και άσπρο σύγκρουση, σύννεφα πάνω από το κεφάλι
Πόσο καιρό μέχρι να ακούσει τι είπαμε
Πόσο καιρό μέχρι να ακούσουν αυτά που είπα?
Φωνάζει σε όλα τα καλά τους μπάτσους
Καταπολέμηση κακούς, κάνει καλό στάσεις
Μισώ ότι στο μπλοκ κουκούλα
Στο τέλος θα μπορούσαν να προσπαθήσουν να σας κατ 'αποκοπή με όλους τους απατεώνες
Θέλω να πω σε όλους τους νέους μαύρων ανδρών μου
Ξέρω ότι αισθάνεται σαν να απλά δεν μπορεί να κερδίσει
Αλλά σε θυμό σας δεν αμαρτία
Μην επιβεβαιώνουν αυτό που σκεφτόμαστε
Μην αφήσετε κανέναν να μας πει ότι δεν πήρε αξίζει
Κάποιοι θα προσπαθήσουν να μας κλείσουν δεν θα λειτουργήσει
Ξέρω ότι δεν είναι δίκαιο, αλλά γνωρίζουμε ότι Αυτός νοιάζεται
Και μια μέρα θα σκουπίσει τα δάκρυα

άλλος
Πού είναι η ελπίδα σας? Η δική μου είναι σε αυτόν
Πού είναι η ελπίδα σας? Η δική μου είναι σε αυτόν
Έχουμε δουλειά να κάνουμε, αλλά η ελπίδα μου είναι σε αυτόν
Πήραν δουλειά να κάνουμε πάρα πολύ, αλλά η ελπίδα μου είναι σε αυτόν

    I see some of the points made in the lyrics, and I know this song is personal, but it feels like it’s a song that’s giving in to this chaos.

    The second section of the 3rd verse, talking about being patted down because hefitsthe description of the criminal. I’ve been patted down before, on the side of the interstate after being tailed for 3 miles, because I wore a beanie and a sweatshirt that made me look like I was from the harsher side of town. Not just that, but I was driving my grandfathers Impala with my dad in the passenger seat, and they checked our stories about us heading back from the local Apple store where I dropped off my Macbook to be fixed. Call it profiling, call it whatever, but it was anything but the color of my skin. One officer was white, the other was black. That was me.

    First line of the first verse: “Μην κανείς δεν θέλει να ακούσει τον πόνο μας”. Pretty sure I know what it means. The word “δικός μας” in that phrase, to me feels like alienation from the song, like I won’t understand what the struggle is, or how you feel. I may not be able to understand, but God gave me the means to support, through Prayer.

    Continuing on that thought, “Όλοι γίνονται κατ 'εικόνα του Θεού ξέρετε”. There’s the whole counter to the song. God created us in His image, and no color, disabilities, gender or origin of nation has ever made God look at any individual He created any differently, so why should we? Why should I look at myself any differently from you, and vice versa?

    I could get further, but I feel I’ve said enough. Ταξίδι, as a follower of Christ we wear our faith, we don’t look at any person any differently or treat them differently. We throw away Self, and focus and put the attention on Him, and regardless of how any one of us feels, when we say we are Christians, the way we act and the things we say reflect how people see Him through us. So if it could have been you, should I look at you any differently? What if it was me?

    My point is, beColorblindin this world.

    • ToryΑπάντηση

      Brother Jordan, can I just express thatcolorblindnessis not the answer to these issues? Let me switch it quickly from race to gender. Men and women are very different, και αυτό είναι ένα καλό πράγμα! To begender blindwould be very detrimental, because it would naturally cut off the importance of our differences, and make us miss out on God. What I mean in that is that as men, mercy tends to not come as naturally as it does for women (notice the word tends!). If we only looked at men, we would miss out on the mercy of God. We would read about it, but see no tangible, human example of His mercy (I’m know I’m speaking in aggressive generalities, but only to make a point).

      Race is the same way. We are actually very different, naturally! Blacks, Asians, Whites, Hispanics, we are usually very different in our worldview, personalities, culture, και τα λοιπά. This is a beautiful thing. By looking at one cultures passion over another, we can see that God is a passionate God (passionate about the right things). By looking at one culture’sslow to anger(ness),” we can see that God is patience with us, and is slow to anger. By looking at different cultures, we actually get to see many pictures of God.

      Without question, we are all to be treated the same, because we are all created in the Imago Dei. Ωστόσο, we are different, και αυτό είναι εντάξει! I’m half black, half white, and have a ton ofblack traits,” και “white traits.Okay. That’s great! Hopefully they show us something about God! I vote for celebration and learning of differences rather than colorblindness, and a true celebration can only happen in the gospel.

    • TaevanΑπάντηση

      Well said Jordan. I will say this one thing: Instead of being colorblind, could we instead see our different ethnic backgrounds as God’s creativity? We stand together with Him under the name of Jesus. He is our bannerno matter if we’re from Ferguson, Cali, Oregon, Alabama or New York. Jesus is our focal point. And in a culture that wants to separate us intominoritiesand different groups, we stand as Christ’s body, underneath Him.

      But I do appreciate your insight on the song. Thank you for building the Kingdom up for His glory!

    • ΑστειεύομαιΑπάντηση

      trip, thanks for these thoughts. I appreciate your sharing your experience as a man of color who thinks of his identity and the tragic state of our culture through the Lens of the Gospel. May the Lord continue to build his Kingdom and fame through your work. Ευχαριστώ.

    Powerful statement, beautifully crafted. Brought years to my eyes when I least expected it. I only recently discovered your music and it has been a wonderfully inspirational discovery at the time in my life God deemed it so. Much praise to you, young brother.

    To say that God doesn’t see color is unBiblical. (Ιορδανία) The Bible says that God created different nations and tongues to showcase His majesty. We shouldn’t pretend that it doesn’t exist! If you say you want to be there for a believer who deals with these things by prayer or whatever avenue then why are you trying to argue his song? He is sharing his hurt. His pain. Stuff that black people, go through. Why do you have to feel alienated for him saying that. Why does your ONE example of a bad experience have to rule out or invalidate the hurt and frustration that many black people have to face daily. Not just that one time. My husband always has to go above and beyond to make sure he comes off as non threatening to people!! Γιατί? Why is it that he is black so he is considered scary and threatening. Why is it that he talks articulate that people feel they need to make the comment, wow you are not what I expected, or you are not like other black people. Do people go up to you and are they surprised by the way you speak? Stop for a min and just hear people out, you don’t have to agree or understand. Just show some empathy and help be a part of the solution! Thanks for sharing your heart Trip Lee.

    Trip Lee man,

    Can I just state that I have grown to love the major authenticity in your voice?! Ahh it’s so raw and real! This is a great feat. bro. Very true, I am very saddened to hear about all of the corruption in which has been shown here on the air and it is crazy how bias and upside down this world can beI’m very disappointed in my own race in which has been stereotyped and broadcasted upon. The video from Brooklyn NY is one of the most saddening things I’ve seen in a long time.

    I love what Jordan is saying. I myself am a black America, a woman, but in my opinion, gender doesn’t play a huge role, black woman can be targeted in discriminatory ways also. I have never been targeted personally for the color of my skin, but I like to think I’d never hate or wish bad things to someone who was to harm me or kill me in a circumstance like the ones we are talking about. Being a Christian, I’m constantly reminded of the verse where Jesus tells us to turn the other cheek. If someone hates you, you love them despite that. Racism will never stop happening, but if someone attacks you, turn the other cheek. You can’t make anyone accept you, stuff like this isn’t going to stop. But we need to stop thinking that blacks are the only race targeted. The only difference is, the white on black crime is the only crime being brought up in the news. What about a white guy killing a Hispanic? Or an Asian killing a black? We are all created equally. Ναί, there was a time when slavery was all black people knew, but today there’s slavery and racism happening among every race. God does not see the deaths of these black men any differently than he sees the death of anyone else. I think we are forgetting that concept, no person’s life matters more than another. And let’s also not forget that we really don’t know the exact facts of these crimes. Ταξίδι, I’m not hating on your song at all, it’s great that every person has their own opinion and this is yours. Although, I will say, yes it could’ve been you, but it also could’ve been a white man. Us black people are not the only targets. Let’s try to see each other the way God sees us, 100 percent equal.

    As a biracial, Color blind(Ναί, because my heritage and culture include too many different races to start focusing on one at a time. I celebrate THEM none the less) woman I can’t imagine anything that a black man is going through. Especially when people jump straight on race and leave God out of it. But I’m glad that you put God in it where he belongs. He belongs in this situation, He belongs as the Justice giver. We belong and trust in Him.

    I played this song for a room full of people trying to hear their brothers and sisters cries yesterday. There were about 18 of us and 6/8 were white. Your words cemented things.

    Know that your words are reaching people in deep, beautiful ways. Thank you for your honest reflection.

  10. JohnnyΑπάντηση

    If you are making this about yourself or about a specific race then it has nothing to do with God. Your song only shows why the racism issue continues the way it does because no one is willing to change the cycle only cry about how they are treated poorly white, Mexican, Asian, people die in the same ways all the time by committing crimes and being stopped by someone we have accepted as a protector. Your either for justice completely or you aren’t there is no fine lines or excuses. You bring up fears and anger, Gods not in those yet you choose to be. You put God in this so g just so Christians keep listening to you rather then making the right stand for God instead your our lyrics say your gonna stand up for racism that your going to make tis song about racism and not God. You can’t sit at 2 tables you either sit at the table if the Father or you sit at the table of the fallen. Either way you’ve lost a fan. I hope you can come to terms with your fear and see how simple respect would change fear into shared respect and working together. If it coulda been you, then maybe you need to rethink your life choices.
