Civility (Bass N Drum Demo)
Let me introduce you to a boy named Reggie Every single day of his life has been heavy Cause Reggie grew up on the wrong side of town With the mother who was white And a father who was Brown Reggie cries himself to sleep every night After cops killed his dad In a handcuffed fight Now Daddy's Gone Forever, and Mama's called a whore And the only place they're welcomed Is the corner liquor store Reggie brushes off everything they say Holding his head high with that PMA You should like Reggie even if you don't like his skin Cuz people matter more than just their melanin Now it's time to meet a young lady named Evelyn With the courage inside of her And a strength to revel in Even when she wouldn't speak People wanted her silent So to shut her up They became violent They never liked her Just because they're not the same And they want her gone Just like her dead name All she really wanted Was to be who she is inside Not living in fear with no place to run and hide She was never out Just trying to start a fight But unbeknownst to Evelyn It was time to say good night HEY MAN! Tell me what you know HEY MAN! Can we let love show HEY MAN! No threat to you and me HEY MAN! Why can't we let it be Cuz life should be more precious to you and me We can't get any further When we refuse to see That there is something more to life Then who is wrong and who is right We need to learn to agree to disagree We need civility
