    my skin is my sin

    my heavenly father please forgive
    For all the things I have done
    All that I'm doing and all is yet to come

    Please tell me my father how can others
    judge me by the color of my skin
    when they say all men are created
    Equally but my skin has been my sin

    My skin is my sin so it's me they picked to feast
    We been in four hundred years of slavery
    Now they released the beast

    They putting guns and drugs in our neighborhoods
    They thought aids would wipe us out
    It start taking some of their kind
    So that planed din't work out

    And for wars they sending hundreds of troops
    They can't get get our older generation
    So they destroying our younger youth

    WE the last of the last
    We are the dying breed
    Wake up my black people
    Are we will no longer breath
    My skin has been my sin
