"Blind"


Mike

Recommended Posts

Right here is a emotional track. Its about racism and one parts about gangs. Feeback is needed. i want to add more to the 2nd verse but i wanted to share it. for those of who dont know, im white. and i started a topic about white rappers using the n-word and how yo uwould react. here i use the n-word. so lets see what happens

Blind

Written by Concept

"Blind is a word we use to represent no vision"

Explain light or dark, or colors to a blind man if you can

Explain why we have racism, why Harriet Tubman ran

Cause a blind man doesn't care if you're white or you're black

And he won't turn around and stab you in the back

A man without vision possess no lust, but trust

Impaired but morally better than us

So fast the scenery changes, rearranges

Now were strangers

World so strange like the sky, through blind kid's eyes

He sat and he sighed, now his mother cries

She yells out why? Nothing he did

But where he went, he's so innocent.

He heard two guys walking, kickin up dirt

I wonder if they knew he couldn't see the color of his shirt

They walked up to him, and they pushed him around

Then he heard metal clicking, an unfamiliar sound.

Boom, two shots and the boy hit the ground.

Dead for a minute and skins getting duller

Not knowing the liquid that came out was also the wrong color.

(Chorus) x2

We should all close our eyes and just become blind

We should all close our eyes and just become blind

Cause, we're all the same on the inside

Just stand up, come out, no reason to hide

What would we do if Rosa moved on the bus?

Would we still have different seats that separate us?

Too bad no one looks at each other the same

Instead we start using harmful racial names

Friends, not 'n*ggers', no hate crimes, no triggers

You gotta understand, that we are all man

Together we live, that's what God planned

We see; skin, jobs and steriotypin

We're blind: to speech, mind, we're just fightin

This civil war, since the beginning of sin

It's just another war that we can't win

(Chorus) x2

Thats real deep man. I like it! No matter what tho, if you record it and use the 'n' word people are gonna question it. Thats just the way it goes in this society. Me personallly would prefer it if no one used it at all in any way shape or form.

But definately a good track!

i added to the second verse. its really good in my opinion

Too bad no one looks at each other the same

Instead we start using harmful racial names

Friends, not 'niggers', no hate crimes, no triggers

You gotta understand, that we are all man

Together we live, that's what God planned

Stand like Gandhi, take the pain like Jesus

Devils now, but angels when he sees us

Save our asses so we lie, and they believe us

God forgives us, but we still need trust

We see: skin, jobs and steriotypin

We're blind: to speech, mind, we're just fightin

This civil war, since the beginning of sin

It's just another war that we can't win

(Chorus) x2

thanks for the feedback guys, i changed one of the lines in the 2nd verse to "God forgives us, but we still need trust" cause i use 'sees us' two times. and your right about how its not easy to come up with this. the first verse is 19 verses and the 2nd is 15 (if i remember correctly). before i added the Gandhi/God parts it was oonly 11 lines in the second verse. so im trying to expand it.

Recording- i havent been recording lately because my program is actung funny and it wont let me record. so i think im gonna reinstall it. the only downfall would be losing all my accapellas i recorded. but i feel like i should have rerecorded them anyway. so maybe this will be good for me. i have an album cover desinged, i did it on paint so i need to find the time to find the actual spot to shoot the picture. ill post the picture soon

oh and by the way i chose the name Concept because of you guys always saying i had good concepts for songs, and it sounded liek a cool rap name so i was like why not. my friend always harrasses me about how the name is stupid and how he says that only famous rappers and performers have rap name. so that kinda killed my spirits.

on the n word....i showed my black friends and they didnt care. they said that i crossed the line, but to prove a point. and as long as i didnt use it to try to be black or to insult blacks they didnt care. so i feel that you guys have the same feelign on it.
