Song Lyrics:

Yes yes today, shake, shake
Come on, yeah, yeah, yes, come on

I'm just here to push limits
Shit-scared of heights but I stay on top of the game
Just to say I did it
Show young black kids that you can live it

Free your mind with it, be proud of your pigment
I wasn't for a while, too many times vilified
For being a shade different
Started hating myself and all dark skin, playing myself
Charlie Sheen, Two and a Half Men

Remember after school, train station
Busta "Break Ya Neck" blasting from iPod Mini
Thankful class finished
So I could go and play Majora's Mask with my little brother

When cops come up and start asking me
"Where you from? What you up to?" "Oh, from Moorabbin?"
"That's half an hour from here, not from around here
Boy, what you selling? Where's your product?"

I hadn't even touched drugs at this point, except maybe a joint
But my skin fitted the description
So "oink oink" had to be deployed
Next day at school, told my friends

The facts of how they treated the boy
They said I'm being crazy
'Cause to them, black voice is white noise
That's the world that we're living in

We seem to forget
The dark days of history, yeah
And time will manifest
The endless possibility, yeah

Open your eyes to see
The world is darker than it seems
So we dreaming on, dreaming on
Enough with the crazy, crazy talk

Yeah, yeah, Dave Chappelle taught me
The worst thing to call someone is crazy
Dismissing all the pain that plagues them in one word
Just to avoid confrontation with yourself
We prefer to sit on a chesterfield lounge
While microwaving

A meal by McCain and watching Australian Idol contestant failing
While the house that we're in is in flames
All because it's the routine
So when they say, "Too deep"
I say, "But it's a reality, you're too deep"

'Cause I'm just using eyes, ears and news feeds to get up to speed
Shit, only those that don't read between the lines abuse these
Therefore I don't lose sleep
'Cause I'm well aware that's the world that we're living in

We seem to forget
The dark days of history, yeah
And time will manifest, time will manifest
The endless possibility, yeah, the endless possibility

Open your eyes to see
The world is darker than it seems
So we dreaming on, dreaming on
Enough with the crazy, crazy talk

Open your eyes [4x]
