Shouldn’t let ‘em know all the shit that you can take
They’ll just shovel more of it right back in your face
Never show your tears don’t show them you’re afraid
Bottle up your life so you never feel ashamed
you don’t try and you don’t care
But you don’t wanna hang your old hat just anywhere
you fit in and you keep quiet and pretend that
you don’t know that there’s a black man in Simi Valley

everybody runs everybody hides
Using everybody else’s problems as a way to disguise
What they really want - what they really need
Focus on your own maybe you will judge a little less of things
Simmer down now simmer down down
Circus rolled in and out and they don’t need another clown
Whatcha gonna do now you’re feeling left out
Are you gonna throw your stones at the black man in Simi Valley

Maybe you’re a black man - Maybe you’re a white girl
Maybe you’re a gay boy - Living in a straight world.
Maybe I can see but I don’t wanna say
Cuz you like it where you are - everything is ok
and you don’t wanna know that there’s a black man in Simi Valley

Who you gonna be whacha gonna say
when they come to tell you that you’re gonna have live this way.
What’s it gonna take. how you gonna get through
When you’re standing all alone and it all comes back to you.
Either way – anyway – up and down - everyday
Nothing new – nothing changed – you can’t handle nothing strange
Who you gonna sue – who you gonna undue
When you figure out there’s a black man in Simi Valley

Maybe you’re a black man - Maybe you’re a white girl
Maybe you’re a gay boy - Living in a straight world.
Maybe you’re a diva – stuck paying with food stamps
Maybe you’re the next star – who never got your big chance

Everybody’s always in my way - Everybody’s needle’s in my vein…
Everybody’s always in my way so everybody maybe you can move

Shouldn’t let ‘em see all the crap that you can take
They’ll just shovel more of it back - back into your face
Never show your fears never own up to your mistakes
Just ignore your mind so you never feel the shame
you don’t try and you don’t care
But you don’t wanna hang your fat hat just anywhere
So you sit tight and you keep quiet and pretend that there’s not

16 million black men – 100 million white girls
Almost a million gay boys - Living in the same world.
13 million diva’s – fighting over food stamps
and somewhere there’s a good guy – I hope he gets a fair chance.
Maybe I can see but I don’t wanna say
Cuz you like it where you are - everything is ok
And you don’t wanna know that there’s a black man in Simi Valley
