Prayin to heaven While livin hell Monetize this black trauma And everything for sale So what you fear We the ones gettin killed out here Mourn the loss Or celebrate the progress Dance between Is where my soul resides Black don't crack But that black do die Far often On ya evening news Dichotomy Of livin in this skin Gotta be cautious Black man shinin Gettin nervous When them sirens get behind me Don't speak too loud Take the hoodie off ya naps Don't move to fast Cuz that might be yo ass Mr officer Why you pull that trigger Just another nigga With another story I suppose You know how it goes I guess my life it don't mean as much This must mean war I can't go and I can't stay It's quite complex around my way I'm tryin to get free I feel these chains Cuz ain't nothin but the same ol thang And I There's a war going on outside That ain't nobody safe from And I'm feelin like they want my soul I'm feelin like they want my soul This must mean war Call me paranoid But I ain't trippin Gotta be realistic Survival tactic That I carry with me Just another statistic I wrote my obituary To shine light On these unfortunate realities I know you see me as a threat Close quarter combat With a Fixed bayonet And Ready for war You got no choice You inherit the fight The future lookin bleak Troubles of the world Is catchin up wit me I got the pain of the past It's heavy on my shoulders And it hurt so bad Leaves from a tree The way my tears fall Coulda been you Coulda been me One of my brothers Or my nephews What if my mother Got that call I don't really wanna think about the shit at all Yo, it's a cold world And I'm just tryin to find peace Cuz all this hate is killin me This must mean war I can't go and I can't stay It's quite complex around my way I'm tryin to get free I feel these chains Cuz ain't nothin but the same ol thang And I There's a war going on outside That ain't nobody safe from And I'm feelin like they want my soul This must mean war
