lyrics

Verse 1

damn/another black dead/4 no other reason/than I was just a black man/passing through this white land/on my way 2 God/aint no holding back them/damn/another black gone/for no other reason/than I was on my way home/sad, such an old familiar song/that my parents finna sing/as they bury me alone/wrong/I never did nothing 2 em/but they try 2 double kill me/twisting thigs that I was doing/just 2 justify murder/assassinate my soul/74 days world/what took u so long/damn/here we go again/I heard they killed somebody else/this time a sister 2 them/this is public lynching/no matter how u view/and u view it everyday/so tell me what u doing

Chorus

they say freedom aint free
well how bout u lower the price
and please stop killing these black kids tonite
I'm saying,
that's all I'm saying(repeat phrase 1x)

Verse 2

damn/another black dead/4 no other reason/than I had black skin/living in this white world/sending prayers up 2 God/hope we get it right world/damn/another black gone/4 no other reason/than I was already home/sleeping in my bed/never heard them 8 shots/boyfriend trying 2 protect me/not knowing its the cops/tell me/why I have 2 die/if I did nothing wrong/and u already had the guy/that u were looking 4/just took the law in ya own/bloody pig hands/and left my family 2 mourn/damn/I know it's gonna happen again/prolly already has/there's no respect for our men/women or our children/but we gotta keep building/and if you're a white ally/then tell me what u doing

Chorus
