Lyrics:

The dark brown shades of my skin, only add colour to my tears
That splash against my hollow bones, that rocks my soul
Looking back over my false dreams, that I once knew
Wondering why my dreams never came true

Is it because I’m black?
Somebody tell me, what can I do
Something is holding me back
Is it because I’m black?
In this world of no pity
I survived in the ghetto of Kingston city
Natty congo works so hard
Just to earn every penny
Something is holding me back
Is it because I’m black?

Like a youth smoking his first spliff and got caught
Looking at the picture [..] somewhere my people got lost
Something is holding us back
I wonder, is it because we’re black?
Somebody tell me what can I do
Will I survive, or will I die?
