Don't Call Me White

Don't call me white, don't call me white
Don't call me white, don't call me white

The connotations wearing my nerves thin
Could it be semantics generating the mess we're in?
I understand that language breeds stereotype
But what's the explanation for the malice, for the spite?

Don't call me white, don't call me white
Don't call me white, don't call me white

I wasn't brought here, I was born
Circumcised, categorised, allegiance sworn
Does this mean I have to take such shit
For being fair skinned? No!
I ain't a part of no conspiracy, I'm just your average joe

Don't call me white, don't call me white
Don't call me white, don't call me white

Represents everything I hate
The soap shoved in the mouth to cleanse the mind
The vast majority of sheep
A buttoned collar, starched and bleached
Constricting veins, the blood flow to the brain slows
They're so fucking ordinary white
Don't call me white

Oh, we're better off this way?
Oh, say what you're gonna say
So go ahead and label me an asshole
'cause I can accept responsibility for what I've done
But not for who I am

Don't call me white, don't call me white
Don't call me white, don't call me white
