taludtod 1:
Huwag nobody wanna marinig ang aming sakit
Iyan ay kung paano ko pakiramdam ako kapag ako flipping sa pamamagitan ng mga ito nerbiyos komento, ang lahat ng pakiramdam ko ay ulan
Sila ay nagsasabi sa akin makakuha ng higit sa ito ay lumang
mga bagay-bagay na hindi umiiral ng hindi hihigit
Ngunit iyon ay hindi magri-ring totoo kapag tumingin ako sa mga lansangan
Kaya ito ay tunay na kapag nararamdaman ko tulad nito coulda naging akin

kawit:
Man Maaari ko bang sabihin sa iyo kung paano ako pakiramdam ngayon
Ah sila Nais mong malaman kung paano ako pakiramdam ngayon
Pakiramdam ko ay tulad nito coulda naging akin
Pakiramdam ko ay tulad nito coulda naging akin
Namin ang lahat ng ginawa sa imahe ng Diyos alam mo
Ang lahat ng aming mga buhay mahalaga, ang aming paningin ay nakabasag
Nararamdaman namin ang sakit dito'y kami dito bago
Sinong walang-sala hindi ko alam
Ngunit ito coulda naging akin
Pakiramdam ko ay tulad nito coulda naging akin

taludtod 2:
Hindi ko alam kung Mike Brown
Ko ay hindi alam Trayvon
Hindi ko alam kung Sean Bell
Ngunit alam ko sila nawala
Ko ay hindi alam Oscar Grant o Tamir Rice
Hindi ko alam kung Eric Garner
Nguni't talastas ko ang kanilang buhay
Ay nagkakahalaga ng higit pa kaysa sa mga ito sinasabi sa screen tv
hate ko ang nakuha ko ng isang mahabang listahan, mo Finna makita ako mapasigaw
Cause nararamdaman kong hindi nila nakikita natin hari
Made upang mamuno katulad Niya, sa tingin nila kami mapagkailangan fiends
Ako ay hindi doon kapag sila pagbaril sa tao
Hindi ko ma-malutas kaso, Hindi maa-sabihin na maaari kong
Ngunit ko alam na buhay bilang isang batang itim na tao
Hulaan hindi ko maaaring maging galit na galit na ang ilan ay hindi maunawaan
Pero siguro gagawin mo
Kung ikaw ay tumingin sa aking buhay at ikaw ay tumayo sa kinatatayuan ko
Gamitin ang aking mga mata upang tumingin sa mga lansangan
Ito'y masyadong tunay na kapag nararamdaman ko tulad nito coulda naging akin

kawit:
Man Maaari ko bang sabihin sa iyo kung paano ako pakiramdam ngayon
Ah sila Nais mong malaman kung paano ako pakiramdam ngayon
Pakiramdam ko ay tulad nito coulda naging akin
Pakiramdam ko ay tulad nito coulda naging akin

taludtod 3:
Larawan ng akin bilang isang teen
Pagpili out inumin sa tindahan kapag ako tumingin sa
Ang cashier nakatingin sa akin, pagkatapos ay siya screams
Puntos sa aking hip at nagsasabi sa akin ako nakikita
Ngunit hold up, Ko ay hindi alam na ako ay na nakakatakot
At ako ay hindi alam na maaari kong shoot sa iyo ng isang blackberry
very kakaiba, that he saw me as a thug
Kapag hindi ko gusto ay nahuli ng isang case, hindi kailanman estola o ang binili ng droga
O kung paano labanan sa araw na aking nagsakay sa isang ipakita
Puno ng kasiyahan, Finna rap para sa isang silid na puno ng mga tao
Sa labas pagkatapos ay hanapin ko ito ay isang gun sa aking mukha
Posas sa aking mga kamay, Pat pababa sa baywang
Ito ay ang parehong ol, parehong ol
magkasya ko ang paglalarawan ng isang kriminal na alam nila
Ipinakita nila sa akin picture, come on
Nagbibiro ka ba? Hindi namin hitsura ng isang tulad
Well the cops thought we did if you looking right
Bawat itim na tao alam ko
Mayroon ka bang mga kuwento tulad ng mga, pag-aani kung ano ang kanilang ay hindi maghasik
Kapag akala mo sila ng isang masamang-loob mula sa jump
Hindi ito ay mahalaga kung ikaw strapped na may bomba
Huwag mong tingnan ko alam kung Mike Brown ay ang kanyang mga kamay up
Ngunit ako ng pagsulat sinasabi homie tumayo Ako up
At Ako ay magsasabi sa iyo sa tingin ko tumingin ako sa mga lansangan
At sabihin ito ay tunay na kapag nararamdaman ko tulad nito coulda naging akin

kawit

taludtod 4:
Skies pakiramdam gray, mata pula
Black and white clash, ulap sa paglipas ng ulo
Gaano katagal hanggang narinig nila kung ano ang sinabi namin
Gaano katagal hanggang marinig nila kung ano ang sinabi ko?
Shout out sa lahat ng mabuti cops
Labanan masamang guys, paggawa ng mabuting hinto
hate ko na sa mga bloke hood
Sa katapusan sila ay maaaring subukan upang bukol ka sa sa lahat ng mga crooks
Gusto kong sabihin sa lahat ng aking mga batang itim na lalaki
alam ko ito ay pakiramdam tulad ng kami lamang ay hindi maaaring manalo
Ngunit sa iyong galit Huwag ka nang magkasala
Huwag magpatibay kung ano ang kanilang pag-iisip
Huwag hayaan walang tao sabihin sa amin kami ay hindi nakuha nagkakahalaga
Ang ilan ay subukan upang sarhan sa amin down hindi ito gagana
Alam ko ito ay hindi makatarungan, ngunit alam namin na Siya ay nagmamalasakit
At isang araw makikita niya punasan away pilasin

iba
Saan ang iyong pag-asa sa? Mine ay nasa kaniya
Saan ang iyong pag-asa sa? Mine ay nasa kaniya
Kaka namin gumana upang gawin, ngunit ang aking pag-asa ay nasa kaniya
Nakuha nila trabaho upang gawin masyadong, ngunit ang aking pag-asa ay nasa kaniya

  2. Jordantumugon

    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: “Huwag nobody wanna marinig ang aming sakit”. Pretty sure I know what it means. The word “natin” 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, “Namin ang lahat ng ginawa sa imahe ng Diyos alam mo”. 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. biyahe, 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.

    • Torytumugon

      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, at iyon ay isang magandang bagay! 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, etc. 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. gayunman, we are different, at iyan ay okay! I’m half black, half white, and have a ton ofblack traits,” at “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.

      • Natetumugon

        Tori,

        Your words have inspired me to write a song using a variation of your words: “We are all created in the Imago Dei, gayunman, 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.

        Grace at Kapayapaan,
        Nate

    • Taevantumugon

      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!

    • si Joshtumugon

      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. Salamat.

  3. Gabrieltumugon

    Salamat sa iyo Trip, you’re a true role model and inspiration. Keep up the good work and lean on the lord’s guidance.

  4. Migueltumugon

    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

  5. Richardtumugon

    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

  6. Toddtumugon

    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!! Bakit? 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.

  9. Abigailtumugon

    biyahe, 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!

  11. Charlottetumugon

    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.

  12. Victoriatumugon

    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. Oo, 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. biyahe, I’m not hating on your song at all, it’s great that every person has their own opinion and this is yours. bagaman, 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.

  13. Danielletumugon

    As a biracial, Color blind(Oo, 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.

  14. Anthonytumugon

    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.

  15. Johnnytumugon

    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, Asyano, 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.

  16. Jontumugon

    He isn’t against the cops right? I don’t think. I love trip and can’t wait till his next album, whenever that maybe. Magandang kanta.

    I just listened to this song and the lyrics are powerful. “Saan ang iyong pag-asa sa?” -Trip Lee. Nagustuhan ko!

    Do all my brothers, kapatid na babae, 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.
