I WANNA BREATHE

Assassinate Me With your Quarrels
Annihilate Me with your Morals
I Don’t Really Want your Laurels
I Wanna Breathe
GARNER that you are Here to Kill Me
If I Were not ‘Black’ you’d Feel Me
So I will Scream until you Hear Me
“I Wanna Breathe”!!!

I WANNA BREATHE
FROM OUT OF MY MOUTH
BECAUSE I TRUST
JUST WHAT I SAID

At Night I Wake Up in my Sleep
Counting Slights instead of Sheep
I Pray that my Soul to Keep
I Wanna Breathe
I’m Not Angry, I’m Just Mean
If Color Lines are all you See
If I’m a Dog, then you’re a Flea *
I Wanna Breathe

I WANNA BREATHE
FROM OUT OF MY MOUTH
BECAUSE I TRUST
JUST WHAT I SAID

The fables of Misfortune favors
HEADLINES that will Sell the Papers
Before My Coffin Closes
Filled with Roses
I Wanna Breathe

I WANNA BREATHE
FROM OUT OF MY MOUTH
BECAUSE I TRUST
JUST WHAT I SAID

I Wanna Breathe!
