about

I wrote this song about the Black Lives Matters movement and the oppression of African Americans in America. Please listen to Common's album "Black America Again" and Solange's "A Seat At The Table". I can write in solidarity, but hearing music written about these issues by black artists is so important. Please also read The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander to learn about the roots and current system of this oppression.

lyrics

I think you’ll be in the city soon
Not right for most, but it’s right for you
Don’t expect to understand
Red cigar in your hand

Who’s gonna mind if it’s right
Who’s gonna mind it’s not right

You’ll get your eyes on those delights
You’ll only see what neon keeps bright
Fresh off the tongue, rolling, “No”
Red cigar of you own

Who’s gonna mind if it’s right
Who’s gonna mind it’s not right

They like to say it’s inside your head
They’ll say it still until the day that you are dead
They’re sorry just to dig another grave
They’re sorry you’re just another special case

Who’s gonna mind if it’s right
Who’s gonna mind it’s not right

I think you’ll be in the city soon
You can take yourself before God takes you
Some are just born the wrong kind
So we all thank god that we’re so colorblind

Who’s gonna mind if it’s right
Who’s gonna mind it’s not right
