HIV RAP – by Blazee Blaze (Charlotte)

TRIED TO SHOUT

Written and performed by Blazee Blaze

WE SEE IT ON THE NEWS NEARLY EVERY SINGLE DAY
ABOUT KIDS DYING FROM BEING POSITIVE OF AIDS
IT’S HARD TO IMAGINE HOW DIFFICULT IT’S GONNA BE
BUT YOU’RE THE EXAMPLES THAT’S HELPING OTHER PEOPLE SEE
I’M NOT HERE TO FILL YOUR BRAIN WITH FACTS
JUST HERE TO EMPHASISE THE WAY THAT THEY REACT
NOT HERE TO TEACH THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THE YOUTH TODAY LACK
OR ALL THE CONSEQUENCES THAT IGNORANCE ATTRACTS
I FEEL LIKE IT’S NOT MY LESSON TO TEACH
SO I WON’T STAND HERE GIVING YOU A SPEECH
‘CAUSE I KNOW IT’S NOT WHAT YOU WANT TO HEAR
JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU SHOULD LIVE YOUR LIFE IN FEAR
OR STAY IN SILENCE EVERY SECOND NEVER SHARING ANY TEARS
MISTAKEN PEOPLE THINK THAT HIV’S FOR GAYS
BUT WHAT THEY GONNA THINK WHEN IT’S SLAPPED THEM IN THE FACE
BECAUSE THEY SHOULD HAVE WORN A SHIELD BEFORE THEIR BOY WENT OUT TO PLAY
IF EVERYBODY DID IT SAFE WE DID IT THAT WAY
THEN NONE OF US WOULD BE STANDING HERE TODAY
BUT THEY DID SO YOU DEAL WITH IT EVERY DAY
IF YOU TOLD THE PEOPLE OUTSIDE THIS IS PROBABLY WHAT THEY’D SAY

(chorus x2)
KEEPIN’ IT QUIET OUT OF THE WAY
NO USE TRYNA DOUBT IT
IF IT’S SUCH A BIG THING HOW COME I DON’T KNOW ABOUT IT

BEING CAUGHT OUT’S EASY ENOUGH TO FILL IN THE CREASES
SHE WENT OUT BEING EASY BROUGHT HIM HOME SOME DISEASES
HIS FACE FREEZES
THE NURSE ASKS HIM TO STEP INSIDE
FEELS LIKE HE DON’T WANNA COMMUNICATE HE JUST WANTS TO HIDE
IT’S OBVIOUS TO EVERYONE ELSE WHO’S SAT OUTSIDE
ITS HIV THERE’S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT IT RIGHT?
HIS FACE STARTS TO SHINE HE STARTS TO FEEL THE HEAT
I’M SORRY BUT YOU’VE CAUGHT SOMETHING A HUMAN CAN’T DEFEAT
HE THOUGHT HE WAS CAREFUL HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN TO ME
HE WISHES FOR ONE MOMENT HER MIND HE COULD READ
WAS LIKE THE LIGHT OF HIS LIFE WAS ONE BIG DARK ALLEYWAY
TRYIN’ NOT TO LET IT HAPPEN LISTEN TO WHAT YOUR CHILDREN SAY

(Chorus x2)

NOT JUST CAUGHT BY SEX OR USING DIRTY NEEDLES
INFECTED OR NOT YOU SHOULD SEE EVERYBODY’S EQUAL
‘CAUSE IT’S THE SIXTH LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN TEENAGERS SINCE 1991
IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’RE ALONE YOU’RE NOT THE ONLY ONE WHO HAS TO POP THE PILLS EVERY DAY LIVE THEIR LIFE THAT WAY
APART FROM THE MYTHS LISTEN TO WHAT THE UNEDUCATED SAY

(Chorus x4)

Thanks Charlotte – you were brilliant at the Cathedral on World AIDS day and even better at the Red Ribbon Ball this weekend at Preston.
Your message of the importance of raising awareness of HIV/AIDS especially to young people came over loud and clear. Well done,
with love from,
Adrienne
