    They claim that we're free, but I can't go where I want.
    I can't go to the ballot box without a threat from the horseback haunts.
    If a white person's on the same side as me,
    I have to cross the street.
    Or cast my eyes towards the ground
    When one approaches me to speak.
    My children can't go to the same school as theirs
    Because they say that we're colored.
    My mother's a seamstress, my wife's a maid,
    My father was brutally murdered.
    Years of threats from the KKK has taught me my proper place on this earth.
    Sometimes I get enraged, but I don't want my family to get hurt.
    Then one night I'm accosted by several men in white sheets.
    Accusing me of staring at a white woman & speaking impolitely.
    They begin to surround me, but I refuse to go out quickly.
    If I'm gonna get killed, I'm taking one of these bastards with me.
    I begin swinging wildly, intent on getting away,
    But 2 of them grabbed me, preventing my attempt at escape.
    Then one grabs a huge stone as he's getting up from the ground,
    And bashes me in the head with it without making a sound.
    I'm unconscious...
