Stih 1:
Ne nitko ne želim čuti našu bol
To je kako se osjećam kad sam prelistao ih twitter komentare, Sve što osjećam je kiša
Oni govore da prebolim to je stara
Da stvari ne postoje više
No, to ne zvuči istinito kada pogledam u tim ulicama
Dakle, to je stvarna kad se osjećam kao da me coulda bio

Kuka:
Čovjek ti mogu reći kako se osjećam upravo sada
Ah da želim znati kako se osjećam upravo sada
Osjećam se kao da me coulda bio
Osjećam se kao da me coulda bio
Mi smo svi stvoreni su na Božju sliku znaš
Svi naši životi smeta, Naša vizija je razbio
Mi osjećamo bol jer smo bili ovdje
Tko je nevin ne znam
Ali to me coulda bio
Osjećam se kao da me coulda bio

Stih 2:
Nisam znao Mike Brown
Nisam znao Trayvon
Nisam znao Sean Bell
Ali ja znam su otišli
Nisam znao za Oscara Granta ili Tamir Rice
Nisam znao da Eric Garner
Ali znam da život
Vrijedi više nego što govori na zaslonu TV
Mrzim sam dobio dugačak popis, što finna me vidjeti vrištati
Uzrok Osjećam se kao da ne vidimo kraljevi
Napravljen vladati poput njega, Misle da smo u potrebi maila
Nisam bio tamo kad su pucali na čovjeka
Ja ne mogu riješiti slučajeve, neće reći da ja mogu
Ali znam da život kao mladog crnca
Pretpostavljam da ne mogu biti ljut što neki ne razumiju
No, možda bi
Ako ste pogledali moj život i da je stajao gdje sam stao
Koristite oči gledati na ovim ulicama
To je previše stvarna kad se osjećam kao da me coulda bio

Kuka:
Čovjek ti mogu reći kako se osjećam upravo sada
Ah da želim znati kako se osjećam upravo sada
Osjećam se kao da me coulda bio
Osjećam se kao da me coulda bio

Stih 3:
Slika mi je kao tinejdžerka
Branje iz pića u dućanu kad sam vidio
Blagajnik me gleda, onda on vrišti
Ukazuje na bok i govori mi da sam vidio
Ali držite se, Nisam znao da sam to zastrašujuće
A ja ne znam da sam mogao pucati s kupina
vrlo čudno, that he saw me as a thug
Kad sam nikad ne bih uhvatio slučaj, Nikad ukrao ili kupio drogu
Ili kako djelovati u vrijeme kada sam letio na predstavu
Pun radosti, finna rap za sobu punu ljudi
Izvan onda mislim da je to pištolj u lice
Lisice na rukama, mazite se u struku
To je isto ol, isto ol
Ja odgovarao opisu jednog kriminalca koji znaju
Pokazali su mi slike, ajde
Šališ li se? Ne izgleda kao
Well the cops thought we did if you looking right
Svaki crnac znam
Imaš priče poput onih, žetva onoga što se ne siju
Kad su ti preuzeti ubojica iz skoka
To ne smeta ako strapped s pumpom
Gle ja ne znam da li je Mike Brown je podigao ruke
Ali Pišem govoreći Homie Ja sam ustati
A Ja sam vam reći imam osjećaj da gledati u tim ulicama
A kažu da je stvarna kad se osjećam kao da me coulda bio

Kuka

Stih 4:
Skies osjećaj siva, oči su crvene
Crno-bijeli sukob, oblaci iznad glave
Koliko dugo dok ne čuje ono što smo rekli
Koliko dugo dok ne čuje što sam rekao?
Poručite svim dobrim policajcima
Borba negativci, čineći dobra prestaje
Mrzim to na haubi blokova
Na kraju bi mogli pokušati strpati u sve lopove
Želim reći svim mojim mladim crni ljudi
Znam da je osjećaj kao da mi jednostavno ne možemo pobijediti
No, u svom gnjevu ne griješi
Ne potvrđuju ono što su mislili
Ne dopustite da nam nitko reći da nije dobio vrijedno
Neki će nas pokušati ugasiti neće raditi
Znam da nije fer, ali znamo da On brine
I jedan dan on će obrisati suze

drugo
Gdje ti je nada u? Moj je u njemu
Gdje je tvoja nada na? Moj je u njemu
Dobili smo posao za napraviti, ali moja je nada u njemu
Oni su dobili posla previše, ali moja je nada u njemu

    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: “Ne nitko ne želim čuti našu bol”. Pretty sure I know what it means. The word “naše” 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, “Mi smo svi stvoreni su na Božju sliku znaš”. 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. Putovanje, 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.

      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, i to je dobra stvar! 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, itd. 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. Međutim, we are different, i to je u redu! I’m half black, half white, and have a ton ofblack traits,” i “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.

      • NateOdgovor

        Tori,

        Your words have inspired me to write a song using a variation of your words: “We are all created in the Imago Dei, however, we are different and that’s more than OK”. Thank you for your initiative to speak and spark wisdom. The rest of the song has turned out to prove itself as purely an undeserved gift of words to express our unity in diversity and in Christ.

        Milost i mir,
        Nate

    • TaevanOdgovor

      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!

    • JoshOdgovor

      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. Hvala ti.

    It’s saddening reading all the events going now in the world. Right from NYC to Kenya. Painfull issues yet we don’t learn from them and keep doing the same things. It’s time we truly became our brothers keepers

  4. RichardOdgovor

    really sad to hear, still can’t really imagine how y’all feel but I see that a lot of black ppl just get just really to fastfeel sad for u al, I feel powerless at all

  5. ToddOdgovor

    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. (Jordan) 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!! Zašto? 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.

    Putovanje, this is good.
    My heart is hurting because there is still a reason to write songs like this. There is still a fight for black lives.
    Maybe one day we can make it right.

    Keep up the good work Trip! Your words and your witness are powerful! May the Lord bless you, keep you, make his face shine upon you!

    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. buraz. 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. Da, 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. Putovanje, 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.

  12. DanielleOdgovor

    As a biracial, Color blind(Da, 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.

  13. AnthonyOdgovor

    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.

  14. JohnnyOdgovor

    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.

  15. JonOdgovor

    Do all my brothers, sisters, disillusioned, and hurting. I am sorry. I am a part of this as an American. But I am listening. I hear your pain.
    I am sorry.
    The word is getting out. No criticism, only love.
