"I Can't Breathe"

As ya can see right now, times square is covered with protestors
There's about twenty riot cops over there
Otha groups have joined & are convergin' here in times square
Today is the ceremony fo' the lightin' of the rockefeller tree
And there's police officers swarmin' errywhere to make sure the protestors
Do not disrupt that ceremony that they're havin'
There's 100s & 100s of protestors right now
In the streets right now, blockin' all traffic, a huge number
An announcement that eric garner, the cop who killed eric garner
Was not indicted by the police department

They tell me I'm resisting arrest
But I'm only protecting my breath, I can't breathe
The cops hate a black man to death
They tell me that mentality left, it didn't leave
See being black come with a price
Sometimes we gotta pay with our life, our family grieves
The grand jury neva indicts
The grand dragon's wearing his white, true indeed

No justice, no peace again
I won't trust the police again
Anotha black man murdered
In the streets by police, he won't hug his own niece again
So what's a black mom tell her son
They might hate the mere sight of ya
So no, I can't buy that pellet gun
They might try 2 tamir rice ya
I guess the devil's job is neva done
Respect the value of my life 2
Fo' me change may neva come
Cause I can't change into a white dude
Cops working with the prosecutor
Prosecutor manipulate the grand jury
Grand jury say it's no indictment
Send the community into levels past fury
Protestors on the sidewalk
They say eric garner was choked here
I say we burn this whole shit down
But won't nothing change when the smoke clear
That's cause the system is broken
Anotha victim of a choking
By a modern day lynch mob
The cops probably wished they could have roped him
How many tears gotta fall?
How many peers gotta fall?
The cops kill instead of capture
A black man of that stature
How many fears were involved?
How many cheered what they saw?
See, equality's the problem
How many years till it's solved?
I think somebody want a race riot
But hip-hop isn't swayed by it
2 many black rappers selling out
Ya white rappers shouldn't stay quiet

(Put yo hands behind yo back)
I can't breathe, I can't breathe, I can't breathe
I can't breathe, I can't breathe, I can't breathe
I can't breathe, I can't breathe


I can't breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
I can't breathe
