The Lyrics

We all know Fred Durst secretly wishes he was black. He wrote this song describing his problem.
No one knows what it's like
To be a poor man
To be the black man
Behind white eyes
And no one knows
What it's like to be caucasian
To not be hated for being black
But my dreams they are more colored
As my conscious seems to be
I am ashy, only elbows
My lips are enormous
But no one sees
No one knows what its like
To feel this rhythm
Like I do, and I blame rap!
No one's this big when it's hard
Or they're fakin
None of my homies
Can come through
Discover n.i.g.g. say it (x4)
No one knows what its like
To not be mistreated, or decieted
Behind white eyes
No one knows how to say
I'm not allowed here, and don't come back
I'm not telling lies
No one knows what it's like
To be the poor man
To be the black man
Behind white eyes

Actually, "Behind Blue Eyes" is by The Who.

This is the biggest piece of crap I have ever read. Your retarded.

Of course it's a piece of crap! Fred Durst has something to do with it! However, the point has been made. I give you a 4, not a 5, because I have to dock you a point for not crediting The Who.

I know it's originally by the Who, and I was gonna put it, but this parody is only applicable if I credit Fred Durst. BTW, The Who's version is really good, so much better than this one.

Good job. Any more blatant social statements you would like to make, or other segments of America you'd like to put down? The beauty of the original song is its subtlety, about being more than the simple black-and-white interpretation you've made it out to be. But, you are indeed entitled to this parody in a free country...and I will defend that right, despite your obviously offensive message. I hope you see the light someday, man.
