You shoulda been downtown, the persons are rising
We thought it was a , they opened up hearth
Dem bullets was flying
They mentioned it was a , obtained rattling lie

Oh my! Time heals all, however you outta time now
Decide gotta watch us from the clock tower
Little tear gasoline cleared the entire place out
I’ll be again with the hazmat for the following spherical
We was tryna protest and the fires broke out
Lookout for the key brokers they be planted within the crowd
Stated it’s civil unrest
However you sleep so sound
such as you don’t hear the screams once we catchin beat downs
Stayin quiet after they killin niggas
However you communicate loud once we riot
obtained opinions comin from a spot of privilege
Sicker than the covid how they did him on the bottom
Talking of the covid is it nonetheless goin round?
Oh why don’t you inform me bout the lootin what’s that actually all about?
Trigger they throw away black lives like paper towels
Plus unemployment charge what? 40 million now
Killed a person in broad day, would possibly by no means see a trial
We simply wana break chains like slaves within the south
Began within the north finish however we ended downtown
Riot cops tried to dam, now we obtained a showdown… down

You shoulda been downtown, the persons are rising
We thought it was a , they opened up hearth
Dem bullets was flying
Who mentioned it was a lockdown, obtained rattling lie
(Ooh wee)
Lockdown we ain’t gotta cease trigger they inform us to
Downtown the place I obtained popped with the rubber bullet
Tre pound, Obtained it in my title now
Imma shoot it

Jay Rock:
Flip in your tube canine, look how they do us
Knee on our necks, bullets in backs
Stimulus checks strictly for blacks
Historical past repeating, individuals scared to eat a hen
All people going vegan, what they put in it?
Take a look at the world we’re dwelling in
They obtained us shook in it
You go in your jog, then your coloration would possibly get you took in it
The person within the mirror can’t look away…
