Yellopain – My Vote Will Count Lyrics (feat. Sevyn Streeter)

[Chorus: Sevyn Streeter]
I know the world won't give me nothing, so I gotta take it
And I know it's a way we can win, why nobody say it
It don't matter where we from, suburbs or the slums
They don't wanna see us winning, they rather keep us dumb
'Cause in a world where we don't know how
Don't let them tell you that your vote don't count

[Verse: YelloPain]
First things first
You know back in middle school when they told us
It was three branches of the government, we forgot it when we got older
It's the judicial, the legislative and executive but all we know is the executive
That's the mayor or the governor and the president
Now none of them three people make no laws they just be checking them
The laws come to their desks and all they do is say no or yes to it
So when the news station tried to tell us that Barack Obama couldn't put a song
We was all saudi at Obama when it was the congress members all along
We gotta focus on the legislative branch
Yeah they the ones that make the laws
Yeah they the ones right how much food stamps money you get on the card
But when people that wanted to help us, wanted the job I know they probably lost
Cause we ain't even know they name win or they ace we know at all
So the congress or the state house, that's legislative they make laws
So what we want from the president is what they do, okay y'all?
See the election every two years but we'll never even go to those
The congress they can raise minimum wage but we ain't even really know it though
So you know back in 08
When we all voted for Obama
We was all supposed to go back in 2010 and vote for the congress
'Cause they the ones make child support laws

They don't wanna choose if your kids at school get to eat snake or corn dogs
The state house make the court costs
So if the country failed then you can't say it still it's your fault
'Cause y'all ain't know to vote for congress members that was for y'all
And they don't gotta leave after four years and we just let them sit see they don't wanna tell you this
They want you to focus on the president
Now the thord branch is the judicial that's judges
They the reason why John Crawford and Trayvon had justice
So when Meek Mill got locked up just for popping
Willie's we blame the judge and not the city
When they let her get voted in
Cause they know who to vote against
Imagine life on the other side, woes better schools better
Everybody get their license back, groceries store food better
Custody of your kids back
Homeless people get new shelters
If we gonna fix the US, we gotta start with them two letters
Me and you, somebody told us that the government wanna keep us broke but the only reason why those people in the government is 'cause we ain't vote
And I ain't talking 'bout the president
I'm talking 'bout the ones we ain't know
So they will go tryna keep it low
But it's gonna hurt 'em when they see them polls
[Chorus: Sevyn Streeter]
I know the world won't give me nothing, so I gotta take it
And I know it's a way we can win, why nobody say it
It don't matter where we from, suburbs or the slums
They don't wanna see us winning, they rather keep us dumb
'Cause in a world where we don't know how
Don't let them tell you that your vote don't count
