about

Eyedentity, is a song about self reflection. It's often the things that make us unique, that are the targets of teasing in our youth. Skin tone, facial features, height, freckles, hair etc. Many times this ridicule progresses into self hate. How many times have you looked in the mirror and thought, I hate ________... you fill in the blank.

My hope is for this song to be an encouragement to whomever hears it. Be bold in loving yourself just as you are. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are beautiful because the creator created you that way... not because someone tells you that you are, see for yourself.

Track Name: Eyedentity (feat. Miles Young)
Pre-hook
Look in the mirror... see what you see... that's you every day of the week 2x

Bridge
And that's beautiful... so beautiful, so beautiful, being different ain't unusual... no 2x

Verse 1
Dark skinned & your hair is nappy
Called blackie buy friends & family
Some of those who's skin tone differ
Ignore your name & call you ______
Don't use slang you talk white
Hip hop ain't the only music that you like
Metallica tees on you just don't look right
You ain't gotta be another stereotype
Clothing's life, folks figured out
One look at what you're they know what you're all about
In or out, can't like it all
The illusion of race ain't allowed to fall
A box for yawl and a box for them
River of life, go ahead sink or swim
Embrace being a human of different hue
And let no one's view define you, hey

Hook
You gone walk the way, walk it out now... you gone talk the way, talk it out now... boy girl light or dark you gone be just who you are, who you are now... 2x

Bridge
And it's beautiful... so beautiful, so beautiful, being different ain't unusual... no 2x

Pre-hook
Look in the mirror... see what you see... that's you every day of the week 2x

Verse 2
Living single, scrolling through mingle
Ain't feeling the club there's to many people
You feel see through, vampire's reflection
And your figure don't scream perfection
That's hard to think, even harder to kill
That's the hardest thing since Dr. Phil
Real recognize real, that's your painful truth
You tired of hearing for a big girl you cute
I know, I ain't never been there
I'm on the other side in a different chair
Ain't dying my hear, don't do my nails
But don't numb your hands, do what you feel, yeah

Hook
You gone walk the way, walk it out now... you gone talk the way, talk it out now... boy girl light or dark you gone be just who you are, who you are now... 2x

Bridge
And it's beautiful... so beautiful, so beautiful, being different ain't unusual... no 2x
