Bang Bang

 

Oh no

My god

They shot my brother down

Oh no

My god

They got me on the ground

Trigger finger, bang bang

Bang bang, bang bang [repeats]

 

Speak from my heart, let’s see where this’ll take me

Wrote this on filson paper, this might be my dissertation

Now let’s assess the situation

You just gon stand on my neck and we gon sit and take it

It’s a struggle from the jungle to the city pavement

Won’t see us grow, they try to kill our babies

Strip legacy, deny us information

Kunta was Toby, baby

I come before you, I am royal

I control the nations

We worth more money to em if we’re locked inside a prison

I want to free em and exile em like Assata did em

Fill villages with malt liquor, fried chicken

Loads of lead in the soil, they wonder why we’re killin

 

Oh no

My god

They shot my brother down

Oh no

My god

They got me on the ground

Trigger finger, bang bang

Bang bang, bang bang [repeats]

 

I war for you

You war for me

 

 

Baby we been brothers

Ain’t nothin fair about your skin color

Don’t duck your head for the incoming

Off the slave coast I feel a gust of wind comin

We fitna get in somethin

Where would we be if Jesus swung back

I mean, think about it

What would we wear around our numb necks

Well Ima tell you where it’s fitna go

Put the fate of the world in the hands of the children of the indigo

Who’d rather push up a daisy then push your envelope

 

 

They been tryin to bury our vision ever since Interscope

I speak it from the inner most

I N I, no individuals

After full moons they fill new skies with trails of chemicals

 

Oh no

My god

They shot my brother down

Oh no

My god

They got me on the ground

Trigger finger, bang bang

Bang bang, bang bang [repeats]

 

They say only cats got nine lives so I look in my hands

Lord if this gun holds nine tries then this ground I’m gon stand

Trigger finger, bang bang

Bang bang, bang bang [repeats]

 

Oh no

My god

They shot my brother down

Oh no

My god

They got me on the ground

Trigger finger, bang bang

Bang bang, bang bang [repeats]
