I woke up this mornin’
And the newsman told me
I didn’t work for NUTHIN—all of my kind
He said it’s just my skin LET’S ME WIN

They say it’s my PRIDE
They say I got PRIVILEGE
Well, I’m not gonna HIDE
This is my HOME… This is my home

Don’t need trigger warnings
Or a safe little space
They’ll cower inside them—say it’s my fault
They’ll say it’s my skin DID THEM IN

They say it’s my PRIDE
They say I got PRIVILEGE
Well, I’m not gonna HIDE
This is my HOME… This is my home

My friend went to college
And her teachers told her
That we have no culture—just what we stole
They said it’s our skin LET’S US WIN

They say it’s our PRIDE
They say we got PRIVILEGE
Well, we’re not gonna HIDE
This is our HOME… This is our home
