  [intro]
"One day,
One day we’ll be free
One day,
One day we’ll be free"
 
[chorus 1]
"One day we’ll all be free on this earth
One day we’ll walk the streets in colour
One day the sky will no longer be gray
Some way, one day you could be my man
I could be your baby girl
One day
I hope that day comes quick
I been praying for a minute now"
 
To this day discrimination is still present in our society.  Many people don’t feel free, fear roams in their hearts tainted with anger and sadness.  The intro and chorus are dedicated to these individuals who hope to experience freedom one day.   
 
[verse]
"They told me stop rapping
So I gave ‘em a poem
I wrote this for myself in the bathroom at 8 in the morning
It goes:
Young girl aren’t you a sight to behold
Don’t let that hold you back
Don’t get caught up in that"
 
 
Many people don’t want these topics to be discussed, they believe discrimination does not exist and ignore anyone that talks about these issues.  The artist writes this song to make sure his message is heard by everyone; he makes it clear that no one will stop him from delivering it.  Writing the poem at 8 in the morning inside a bathroom speaks of his desire and dedication to preach this message.  The anger towards those who ignore these problems is so strong that it doesn’t matter when or where he is writing, the words flow automatically.  The last part is dedicated to girls who feel insecure about themselves, he lets them know that they are beautiful.   
  
 
"See I get it,
The problem is found in the roots of the system
Its not a bad bitches fault for being bad
And that’s a fact
Too many people will blame it on how we sequels of those who came before us
But wake the fuck up
You snoring too loud
Your intentions are showing
You ain’t been caught up in the world
A whole lot been going on
You can’t fake that you woke no more
We all can see the fog
That you calling your past
Your points just don’t add up
Your math is fucking trash
Don’t go back on the shit that you blasted
If you growing and its showing then congrats
But to everyone else
Don’t expect many fans when you get caught red handed"
 
 
Discrimination is deeply rooted in our system, huge steps must be taken for people to find the freedom they seek.  On this verse the artist is talking to those people who fake their beliefs to fit in with others and gain fame.  They preach about equality but their past actions don’t add up to their message.  They might gain fans easily at first but when they are caught and exposed those fans may no longer look up to them.       
 
 
"I feel like
We all should know better by now
Its been a while
Too many victims have fallen down
Too many victims ain’t got nobody around ‘em
They can’t go to police
They’ll be shamed by the whole town"
 
 
 
This verse was written for sexual assault victims but can be applied to all types of discrimination.  Many victims of sexual assault are afraid to speak out, they are afraid of the aggressor and they're also afraid that no one will believe them.  The psychological trauma is extremely heavy and most of them don't have a shoulder to lean on. This verse could also apply to police brutality and the injustice people of color currently face.  Victims from police brutality keep piling up and their voices are still not being heard.    
 
  
"I fear fame gets to some people’s heads
They try to take it by hating all for a check on the gram
My only plan when I blow up?
Stick it to the man
I’ve seen my own on the ground
So from the clouds
I been watching and singing one day"
 
This verse is for those people who gain fame but use it to promote hate for likes on Instagram, they build their audience by spreading hate.  The artist claims that after seeing so many of the people around him face discrimination, he will stay true to himself and continue to preach about equality.  Fame will never change his message of freedom and as long as he lives he will stand by those beliefs. 
 
 
[chorus 2]
"One day we’ll all be free on this earth
One day we’ll walk the streets in colour
One day the sky will no longer be gray
Some way, one day you could be my man
I could be your baby girl
One day
I hope that day comes quick
I hope that day comes"
 
CONCLUSION
 
Discrimination still exists and there is a lot of work we must do to fix it.  We might never find absolute freedom, but we can surely fight to get as close to it as possible.  Evil will always exist but if we begin by improving ourselves, we can make a big impact in this world.  This song is a reminder to everyone that we can do better, what actions are you willing to take to achieve freedom? How can you help those who are currently being discriminated by the color of their skin, sexual preference, or gender?
