It’s amusing how we can get blasted for blasting music
Sounds like a riddle: what’s dangerous about iced tea and skittles?
I don’t know, but it left us dying, bleeding with cavities in our bodies.
And it’s pitiful - we can catch a shot just for running to the cops
Looking for help. “They look thuggish. It was bound
to happen. They should just Stand [their] Ground.”
When we did, we shot the ceiling to stop the domestic abuse.
It’s no use. Now the abuse is coming in the prison.
More than just Pistons: we’re not all Bad Boys
We’re just treated as target practice toys in this “post-racism” world
When we cry out, we go unheard
But we can get assaulted for not being able to hear a cop’s words.
"Cops do what’s necessary"
Because they needed to shoot a 92 yr old woman, then admit the cocaine was planted
Because they needed 50 bullets to stop a shooting that never happened
Because they needed 41 bullets to put that guinea pig from Guinea in the cemetery.
We’re just guinea pigs to test the courts in this land
to see how much they can
get away. They should get an Oscar, Grant-ed
How well they can act
"Step back I’m gonna tase him"
then put a bullet in his back
This was just the past 15 years more or less
Moral-less; that knife was 9 inches deep
Pulled it out 6
Then called that progress
Februaries go by
And for every successful African-American
50 more die
Chicago is a war zone; Detroit is on its way
I don’t know we’re headed, but I pray
It’s not another early grave
