lyrics

Black souls black holes black matters
They have black fears of black ears hearing black matters
We right here chanting black matters

First they had us captured
Masta whipper snappers
Now they want us splattered
Front page lives shattered
[damn]
Pretty fucked up
These lives that erupt
For the corrupt
Make you duck
hol' up
May you sick
sho nuff
It's real out here
Fear in the atmosphere
Cares for despair
Make you stare
To the solar flares
Praying for a change
I'm just riding in my lane
Strolling to the store
Walking my dog
Sippin on a latte
Please don't bother me
I can feel the looks
It's the sharks verse
the J-E-T's
officer Krumpy
You bumped into me
Show no courtesy
Stealing lives
I surmise
Black burglary
Warn you now
February coming early see
It's Return of the kings
Crowns and jewelry
Cease the foolery
Cut the chatter
Pound sign
BLACK LIVES MATTER

Black souls black holes black matters
They have black fears of black ears hearing black matters
We right here chanting black matters
Black matters

Sit in the back of the bus or in the front with the rest us
Dont always fear the worst of us
Cuz u dont know the best of us
Take a seat wit me
Take a sip wit me
I dont care if you see the world differently
But if it didnt speak for it fight for it
Then you'd prolly still ignore it
Again again again
You dont see a difference between me him and his friend.
Its fuckin time for that to end
For all us
Id rather war on that
Then war on drugs
Government goons
corporate thugs
Biggest gang in the world wheres a badge
It the Fuzz
Run. Or dont run.
Either way they might finish it
Tazered right in front of my kids im speaking gibberish
Why you think we different?
Its factual cause of capital and white privilege
Committed that crime thats right i did it
you police or executioners mister
Black face killed
Creates a black space thats feels familiar

Black souls black holes black matters
They have black fears of black ears hearing black matters
We right here chanting black matters

We all matter, we all matter (we are)
We all matter, we all matter (we do)
