Lyrics

Angry White Man, what hangs in your head?

Angry White Man, who isn’t listening to you?

What does it feel like in the pit of your gut?

How long has it been since you felt understood?  

Was it one person or episode?

or a lifetime of betrayal that left you this way?

 

CHORUS

Everything has to be black and white.

Please I don’t want to end up like you.

 

You scare people off who may fuck up your lawn

which welcomes no one but the scorching hot sun

 

CHORUS

Everything has to be black and white

Order and rules, keep ‘em in tightly drawn boxes

 

You fear the lazy, the humble, and sick

Those with different traditions, ideas, and concepts

Draw lines upon maps and say live over there

or better yet far from here

Somewhere deep inside that child was ignored

Who grew up to build walls from the people he cared for

 

CHORUS

Everything has to be black and white

Jaded, heart hardened, with your piercing mean looks

 

You isolate yourself and shut your blinds

in that faux upscale midtown apartment

You shout get out get out! You use hurtful insults.

that pierce through the most vulnerable parts!

Loud voices and conjured fears

Submissive bots who consent without love

 

CHORUS

Crush those where they are vulnerable and weak

Oh angry white man what kind of world do you want?
