Head over to our respective Facebook pages to keep updated with upcoming releases, tours, and much more! www.facebook.com/jibjabjonesandtheindigocircus www.facebook.com/wemakenoisemo LYRICS: Will someone give me the details About when men decided that they could control The reproductive rights of a female Spewing hatred towards the ladies When none of them could ever have babies Boasting shady so-called facts Claiming they're doing god's work But taking away more than they'll ever give back So condemn your friends For daring to step in to defend And embrace their sexuality But your bros can fuck as many women as they please While failing to see the dichotomy Between what they're doing and these women they're slut shaming But whose fault is it really? Will someone speak up so I know who I should be blaming Because they told me I could hear freedom ring And I could be anything But they forgot to say unless you're a woman, black or gay Because, hey, that's just the American way And can someone tell me why it's assumed that because I'm black I must smoke weed, do a little crack, and eat so much fried chicken that I'm destined for a heart attack But I wear 'old man' glasses and my pants high watered But these Southern gentlemen still believe That I want to rob their houses and fuck their daughters I look like Erkel or Carlton but they'll still label me a crook So, if it's like that, then for the record, real thugs read books If they could only see that my own people give me the same dirty looks For not being black enough Or for my parents moving up From the opportunities they took I guess I'll never be off the hook But they said I could hear freedom ring And I could be anything But they forgot to say unless you're a woman, black or gay Because, hey, that's just the American way So who has the right to say That someone can't get married because they're gay How can you expect respect if you handle things that way You can't just punish others for not abiding by your beliefs I know you want a Christian nation but look at what this country wants versus what it really needs You spend so much time teaching that being gay is wrong That these kids can barely read, do simple math, or pay attention for too long I won't apologize, because if I said it then I meant it And if you've got a problem with that we'll take it out back and get you acquainted with the cement, kid Because they said I could hear freedom ring And I could be anything But they forgot to say unless you're a woman, black or gay Because, hey, that's just the American way
