He said, "The white boy's visiting, the black man's here to stay"
While my privilege showed like the chalk marks on display
The fear is something new, I'm confused by property too
The romanticized aesthetic, man it isn't as poetic
As apologetic street names and wars waged to lose

"Keep your head down"
"Keep your head down"
"Keep your head down"
He said, "Keep your head down"

"While you're walking through here"

    General CommentDefinitely about moving to south Philly from white working class Scranton PA, and all the black dudes on your block being bitter and seeing you as another hipster yuppie, gentrifying the area. Its obvious.
