As Our Skin is White (And Our Eyes are Blue)

 

A Psycho Sacco original.

Lyrics:
As I stare into the blueness of my daughter’s eyes
I shudder to think the world wants her to die, I cry
But I will fight for her even if I die
Our race will still survive, we gotta keep it alive
Ain’t no one gonna say I didn’t do what’s right
Nor stand by my folk and put up a fight, that’s right
Ain’t no one gonna say I didn’t stand up and fight
Nor stand by you all and do what’s right, and fight
‘Cause I don’t wanna know what happens if we loose
No, I don’t wanna know what might become of you
And I don’t wanna see the darkness of that night
No I won’t stand at ease until we set things right
There’s so little time and so much to do
C’mob now, men, it’s up to me and you
We’re right as our skin is white and our eyes are blue
As I stare into the blueness of my son’s bright eyes
I shudder to think the world wants him to die, I cry
But I will fight for him even if I die
Our race will still survive, we gotta keep it alive
Ain’t no one gonna say I didn’t do what’s right
Nor stand by my folk and put up a fight, that’s right
Ain’t no one gonna say I didn’t stand up and fight
Nor stand by you all and do what’s right, and fight
And I don’t wanna see our world be torn apart
No, this can’t be the end; no, we must make a start
And I don’t really care what they might do to me
No, I won’t be kept down; no. I will be set free
We’ve gotta set examples for our young white sons
If we stand up as men, then the battle’s half won
Who will stand with me and stand up too?
Stand up now, men, it’s up to me and you
We’re right as our skin is white and our eyes are blue
And our courage is true
