about

Full album will be released January 31st! Enjoy the single in the meantime!

“Peacocks and Pigeons,” touches on gentrification and use of Black people as tools for American culture. It also exposes treatment that supports the mentality that Black Americans are equally and easily disposable.

lyrics

Chorus
I am not beautiful to you
You do not see me when you show off your glamour
I am just a color to you
You do not make room for my advantage
Repeat 1x

Verse
How could you doubt me?
How could you doubt me, when you knew nothin’ about me?
I’m not just a body
I’m not a nigga on the streets holding my jockey
I’m not living spotty…
It’s not the 80’s ain’t no poppy in the lobby
How is it that you got me?
Worthless when you live near my property,
What a fucking mockery…
What am I?
This is such inequality.
There colonies,
And they policies.
Forever robbing me pushing me into poverty -
And I don’t believe i’m a minority.
My 9-5 can’t beat monopolies.
So you gon’ feel my animosity -
Now my spots is where you buy your coffee beans.

Chorus 2x
