Herstory - text

How do you tell someone that they cannot believe in the face that they see
You try to sell, something that they cannot receive and rob their identity
She's been born right into a world, behind before she even breathes
Trying to mold her into a thing, that's the opposite of her being.
Now she's about to spend her whole life, just trying to fight what she can't achieve
'cause she thinks she has to be that, otherwise she will never succeed

Her hair's dark and her skin follows
Grown to think it's something wrong with what she's got though
Ancestry filled with Kings and Queens
Except they aren't exactly from what's seen

Okay, I'm hearing that. But what ya tellin' me?
that we can't coexist, based on our pedigree
I understand what's on your mind, that we aren't tied genetically
But that alone won't make or break our home

It's okay that we highlight our differences
cause we can't harmonize if we sing on the same pitch
Be yourself is what you must do
It don't make them right or wrong 'cause they don't align with you

And all this time it's resting in the back of her mind
Think it's sublime, two different people, two different grinds
They're not the same but she is thinking she has to change
and now she's perming her hair out and putting on bleaching cream
She think she's hexed, something that she will never get
Not understand she's beautiful in her own respects
She's confused, no clue and that is clear
'cause she can't get away from that Eurocentric atmosphere

There's never 1 aspect, 1 perspective, or cultural lens
What applies to one, may not apply to another.
Majority or minority
You're still groovy!

Be yourself and not anyone else

Okay, I'm hearing that. But what ya tellin' me?
that we can't coexist, based on our pedigree
I understand what's on your mind, that we aren't tied genetically
But that alone won't make or break our home

It's okay that we highlight our differences
cause we can't harmonize if we sing on the same pitch
Be yourself is what you must do
It don't make them right or wrong 'cause they don't align with you

Okay, I'm hearing that. But what ya tellin' me?
that we can't coexist, based on our pedigree
I understand what's on your mind, that we aren't tied genetically
But that alone won't make or break our home

It's okay that we highlight our differences
cause we can't harmonize if we sing on the same pitch
Be yourself is what you must do
It don't make them right or wrong 'cause they don't align with you
