This one's for the martyrs, I can hear you talkin'
we been layin' rest to peers, way too often
man it seem like every week we got another victim
that I heard about, silencin'
these writers gon' get the murders out
can't face my neighbors
they ain't got no reason to give one flying fuck
when my face in the papers
coulda been my brother, son, homies man
can't shake my labels
'cause I got a bar code when I came out
try to lock me up, or just lay me out
my future shit I can't play 'bout
cops, better call they K-9
they life worth more than a nigga, right?
see 25 we may not
'cause the wrong cops pull triggers, like
Wilson off, reckless remind me of Texas the way he was gunnin'
you the one that got the gun to my stomach,
why you pump the lead when I'm runnin', huh?
y'all brothers like my brothers, that melanin different
why they endin' up on these altars, thrown under the prison
every neighborhood it's like a track meet when they spot the cruisers
ain't no coming back, no such thing as winnin' when you shot the losers
No Peace (3x)
We got two generations wit' they eyes closed
battlin' n grip Bibles
they ain't got the answers
Malcolm gone, took Martin out, we ain't got the Panthers
what's next for us?
I see the pics up on Instagram, y'all flex for it
better take the noise to they neighborhood
tear gas in they backdoors
we done tried waiting, marched in silence
and we held hands, y'all started violence
got fuckin' tanks on our city streets
pointin' rifles, don't start the lyin'
I seen the footage, reminiscent of the Jim Crow
when them tensions blow
years ago, I got confirmation
when my cousin copped to ten years for dro
it ain't fuckin' right...
give it to ya straight, I can't be polite
it ain't workin',
to all the parents been hurtin',
keep ya heads up, it is worth it
'cause in the end times, we got revelations
preparations, been headed for it
blasphemous in my purpose
got new commandments, reject the lord's
one eye for an eye...we all blind
hope you keepin' yo word...when it's time
