Why must we die at the hands of police in blue
Secretly wearing uniform raging like a wolf
Quick to pull the trigger on any black person they conceive as a threat
Please Donít Shoot Hands Up Why is it that
black mothers have to keep burying their children with a broken heart?
Tears flowing down her face like river crying out to Yah
Over 400 years some evil men have been
lynching and hanging and beating us to death,
now they just shoot as if they are hunting deer
No peace can we find they told us to believe in this image our ancestors never knew
Now we are awakening to the truth according to the scriptures
he didnít look like them he looked more like me and you!
Once again, we been brain washed to believe a lie
Please Donít Shoot Hands Up Come on Massa
police get your knee off our neck, you got that much hatred for your fellow human being
Shame on you I canít breathe please, please I canít breathe
Have some compassion on me, mom, mom I canít breathe!
Iíll see you soon on the other side
