RIGHT PLACE, WRONG TIME Registered & Protected
This is not a disguise
I'm just wearing my clothes
walking in freedom where every place is "My Place"
didn't know I need to broadcast my zip code
my area code and a picture of my residence
didn't see the signs, that fly
this our dress code and race code
and if you didn't match color code
you are in violation of your presence
didn't realize,
keeping my hands in my pocket signified
me holding a weapon
where is my protection
when someone is approaching me in fast stepping
didn't ask me who I and I
didn't acknowledge yourself
while suspiciously approaching I
shouldn't I be the one feeling threatened
how would the world perceive me,
if I don't say "halt",
shoot first, ask questions later
yeah, a black man holding a weapon
You didn't give me a moment to plead my case
didn't even ask
you just didn't ask
you should have asked
didn't give a chance to reveal my face
so tell me this
who's really wearing the hood in the hood
the criminal hood vs innocent hood in this case..
