Say you were invisible but then no, you said, no to that

from Megan Burns – This One (Day 29) on Rap Genius

Meaning

Wayne Carter could have remained an “invisible” person, another African American youth condemned to death or jail in New Orleans, but he escaped that fate and chose another. The poem points out that every king is sacrificed; all choices require some sort of loss.
