I've been low, I've been high
I've been told all my lies
I've got nothing left to pay
I've got nothing left to say

I'm a black men in a white world
I'm a black men in a white world
I'm a black men in a white world
I'm a black men in a white

I'm in love, but I'm still sad
I've found peace, but I'm not glad
All my nights and all my days
I've been trying the wrong way

I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world

I feel like I've been here before
I feel that knocking on my door
I feel like I've been here before
I feel that knocking on my door

And I've lost everything I had
And I'm not angry and I'm not mad

I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world

I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world

I've been low and I've been high
I've been told all my lies
I've got nothing here to pay
And I've got nothing left to say

I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world

I'm in love, but I'm still sad
I've found peace, but I'm not glad
All my nights and all my days
I've been trying the wrong way

I don't mind (I'm a black man in a white world)
Who I am (I'm a black man in a white world)
I don't mind (I'm a black man in a white world)
Who you are (I'm a black man in a white world)
And I'm not wrong (I'm a black man in a white world)
I'm not wrong (I'm a black man in a white world)
Oh, it's alright (I'm a black man in a white world)
It's alright (I'm a black man in a white world)
Oh, it's alright (I'm a black man in a white world)

Oh, it's alright (I'm a black man in a white world)
I'm not fighting (I'm a black man in a white world)
It's alright (I'm a black man in a white world)
I'm not fighting (I'm a black man in a white world)
I got somethin' on my mind (I'm a black man in a white world)
Makes me sad (I'm a black man in a white world)
Makes me mad (I'm a black man in a white world)
Oh, I'm not (I'm a black man in a white world)
It's alright, it's alright (I'm a black man in a white world)
Oh, it's alright (I'm a black man in a white world)
Oh, it's all, it's alright (I'm a black man in a white world)

I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world

I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world

I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world

I'm a black man in a white world
I'm a black man in a white world
