Перевод песни Meshell Ndegeocello – Shoot'n Up And Gett'n High

Работает на технологии Яндекс.Переводчика
He lived two train stops away
I was a train ride away from heaven
We signify about politics, low income housing
Birth control and abortion
The capitalistic hand around my throat
Shootin'up dope to cope in this dehumanizing society
We both found God when he O. D'd
He found beauty in my black skin
Amidst the cover girls and clairol ads
Makin' no mistake, what's white is right
Livin'in a world where the TV shouts
«Forget where you come from!»
And damn I thought I was shootin'up Africa in my veins
White man voodoo slow my brain
The while man fights wars and enslaves
All in God's name
What ya trying to achieve with your sun tan lotion
You wanna keep me down keep me down
Revolution against this racist institution
The white man shall forever sleep with one eye open
Dehumanize me Criticize, set aside
Livin'in the midst of genocide I hear voice
Voices are what I hear
Would you die for your right
