Hey now it’s me
Descendant of the enslaved
I never knew
Never knew my family name
Long since overwritten by the one they gave us
Hey now it’s me
Don’t you think I trust you
No no no

Hey now a name
Ain’t the only thing they stole
Labor and lives
They even took our rock and roll
Phony smiling faces with a murderous intent
How many names
Don’t you think I trust you
No no no

Wake up black the book is green the line is red
Wake up black

Hey now it’s me
See it everywhere I go
Nowhere is safe
Legacy of jimmy crow
Used to keep it hidden now they flaunt the hate with pride
Hey now it’s me
Don’t you think I trust you
No no no


from I Am Experienced, released June 20, 2023
