lyrics

Verse 1:
I hear your chitter-chatter
And your laughter,
when I walk into the room.
Tell me what your scared of?
Do you see my power, What I do consume?
You say that I'm worthless,
I don't have the right to be just where I am..

Chorus 1:
Is it my
prophylactic, super-galactic, Afro-Latino
that's in my veins, are you scared?

Verse 2:
Tell me what your scared of,
When I wear my hoodie?
Do I come across to hard?
I know I am from Philly.
But I promise you,
I am just someone who's trying to do
what I have to do, while I am here.
Not trying to go out by shootouts
Like out in Chicago with all of my peers.

Chorus 2:
I'm just
Hoping for some super-galactic
Understand, Overstanding.
Save Your Tears Save Your Tears, ORGANIZE lets make change here.
That super-galactic
oh fantastic
I can take down everything
I'M POWERFUL
My ancestors with me,
I hope you see my heart in my art.. I know, I know, it's hard, it's hard, it's hard, it's hard sometimes..

Verse 3
I can't go outside these days
without running into rain
I can't turn on my TV
without seeing someone in pain
I can't do nothing but think about
How I'm gonna attain
There's so much on my shoulders,
that's that strength that I will gain.

Outro Chorus:
I'm that
Super-galactic oh fantastic
Afro-Latino that's running through my veins, you cannot take it away.
I'm That super-galactic, oh fantastic.. MY LIFE IT MATTERS, your fear it shatters away.
