Yah, yah
Yah, yah, yah, yah
Yea
I gotta say yah, yah
Yah
Look
I gotta say I seen a lot of people turning into jokes
They steady smoking toting weapons that they never gonna blow
A couple bros locked in the box because the witnesses had told
That somebody had sent some shots and one had hit a 10 year-old
Six years and not a tear think we bout in three and a half
So when they out I pray that they don't act too savage
When the dawgs unleash ima go head and get em a care package
Pay for classes, pray they won't be in the streets still being active

I gotta say yah
I gotta say, I gotta say, I gotta say yah
I gotta say I never knew it'd be this way yah, yah, yah
I gotta say yah
I gotta say yah
I gotta say
I gotta say we gotta break out of these chains
The cops are killing say that we're the ones to blame
I gotta say I think it's time we made some change
Let's start today

They treating black men like some curses, tryna fill us up in hearses
Pray I get these verses out fore I'm in mine
All I ask is for reparations to give me peace of mind
Don't you see that equality is only viewed in the eyes of the white man
That put the pen to the paper and signed our documentation
To keep us locked up and confined
I gotta say you would've thought we'd have come further with the times
But every time we seem to see progression seems that we rewind

I gotta say yah
I gotta say, I gotta say yah
I gotta, I gotta say yah
I gotta say
I gotta say I never knew it'd be this way yah, yah, yah
I gotta say
I gotta say we gotta break out of these chains
The cops are killing say that we're the ones to blame
Yah, Yah

Now let me talk about these women
Got a shawty out in Las Vegas, family crazy
Know I gotta come correct cuz her brother be spraying
Shawty out in D.C., she freaky
Ain't even one step through the door and she tryna unclothe me
A couple shawties in the A-town, they stay down
But they be scamming when they hit my line it's straight to voice mail
Nother shawty out in Dayton, body bangin'
Since day 1 I been attracted to her ebony persuasion
Ride or die she out in Memphis she deserve a pendant
Wasn't man enough to give her my complete attention
When I reminisce I tend to get up in my feelings
But never mind I gotta see things in the bigger picture
No I will not be perceived as just a sorry nigga
Couple homies in that boat I got to get to fishing
No I will not let you loose that's not what brothers do
How you gon let your family fall and still be comfortable
Damn

I gotta say yah
I gotta say, I gotta say, I gotta say yah
I gotta say I never knew it'd be this way yah, yah, yah
I gotta say yah
I gotta say yah
I gotta say
I gotta say we gotta break out of these chains
The cops are killing say that we're the ones to blame
I gotta say I think it's time we made some change
Let's start today
