"skins" as written by and Mutabaruka Allan Hope....
Black is the color of my skin
But there is more of me to see within
Skins have played many tricks on me
Skins yes skins is what they see
But I am made with bones and skin like u
Doin' hopin' for the same things u do
For justice peace and a place on earth
For life existance and what its worth

So stop playin' your skin tricks on me
If my skin ain't free neither will we be
Stop playin' your skin tricks I say
Tomorrow is a brand new day

For every skin that's here on earth
Came to existence through a child's birth
The blood that moulds is always red
Life continues even when skin is dead
Skin for u
Skins for me
When skins are black and in slavery
No skin can truly say its free

So stop playin' your skin tricks on me
There is much more of me to see
Stop playin' that skin trick I say
Tomorrow is a brand new day

Open your eyes, and be wise
Take u awake and realize
Life is blood we all possess
Blood is where life existence rest
The blood that moulds is always red
Life continues even when skin is dead

Skin is black
Skin is white
We live through the day
We live through the night
Skin is black
Skin is white
The color of skin is not the right to might

So stop playin' that skin trick on me
There is much more of me to see
Stop playin' that skin trick I say
Tomorrow is a brand new day
