[verse 1]
this is a story ‘bout people who wanted to live
but the police ain’t letting ‘em do it
now they got me thinking, how you gon’ start k!lling us, if you want us to live equal?
i am just tryna stand up for my people
they shoot us like we see~through
but we are just humble people
tryna live our life here
if we cannot do that, we will still thrive here
you k!ll these people, and that is not okay, i ain’t letting that slide while i’m here
you cannot move me, i’ma stay right hеre
let my power ovеrcome my fear
we keep on protesting
they not learning they lesson
keep on stressing
then you gon’ stay right here, yeah
what did we do to deserve this?
we cannot let this worsen
only reason i am rapping ‘bout this, is because i am a black person
these bullets run through you
do you think black lives matter?
‘cause they do
sing along to this song if you got one too
we got to start fires and get to looting
‘cause you keep on shooting
think we don’t see what you do on the news?
do you think we are stupid?
i’m just tryna stand up for what i believe
just tryna make things right ‘fore i leave, yeah
god is man of his word, i prayed he would help us
we got to come together as one, we cannot promote self~love
we could only fight if you let us
feeling like every day is a setup
you cannot fight by yourself
now i’m getting really fed up, yeah
black and white
life, getting crazy right now
how could this get any worse
in the middle of a pandemic
all these people are dead
and i cannot help it
covid~19 finna make things worse
how could these people be so selfish?
they know we are equal
they know we are people
we represent for people like floyd and taylor
you were ‘posed to save us
now your mind is now run over with murder
people need to live
and you do too
stop leaving us hopeless
give us some hope
you cannot shoot somebody, then expect us to go
our hearts have been broke
now you want to want us to go home
losing your life is worse living the life of a cop
now you better stop
‘fore one of your people get shot
imagine it happened you
then what would you do?
we steal the case
‘cause we tryna stand up for our race, yeah
this is not over
we got to stand up for cities like kenosha
i already told ya
i’m like dababy, tryna keep it kosher
tryna live my life ‘fore it comes to an end
at least my people will understand
that i had a friend
i’m out here left to hope and pray this don’t happen again
we tell ‘em we can’t breathe
but in our lives
the bigger picture is seen
we open our mouths
our voice will be heard
we can change the world
with three words, yeah
[chorus]
b stands for black
what we represent for
they come to your door
shoot up your home
love is a privilege, what we need now
we are one, not done
our protests are not over
if you see these people, you better hide
keep a gun if you go outside
you better pull over once they start flashing them lights
only reason we here is this is bigger than black and white, yeah

[verse 2]
my heart gets banged up
when another black person gets stained up
but how could you blame us?
it’s not our fault that cop cars get flamed up
embrace your color, represent for your people
we are not the others, not the outsiders
you cannot fight us, our power will light up
our skin is weapon, our voice is our power
and that helps to ignite us
cannot make it without us
and how could you doubt us?
we are all made up of matter
what on earth happened?
what happened?
how we live is how we thrive
why’d you k!ll?
so we could die?
when were you ill?
why would you lie?
back in the ville
when we would always confide?
the magic is real
the magic doesn’t lie
rubber bullets won’t help you
they will just fail you
done with your propaganda
you need people to save you, yeah
[chorus]
b stands for black
what we represent for
they come to your door
shoot up your home
love is a privilege, what we need now
we are one, not done
our protests are not over
if you see these people, you better hide
keep a gun if you go outside
you better pull over once they start flashing them lights
only reason we here is this is bigger than black and white, yeah

[verse 3]
murder is not right
we must fight for our rights
taking these bullets, physical and mental
k!lling us is not coincidental
cops’ personality is detrimental
we are not outlaws, we are just people tryna our life
we just got categorized wrong
this can’t be real, 2020 is one real messed up year
we will fight until we gone
i’ma make it count while i’m here
we will keep going on
we are not juvenile, been a while
we are not scared of you
stand up for ourselves, cause we black and we cherish it
what world are we living in?
you k!ll these people, and we will perish you
bring you down, see how it feels to be afraid
we’ll stand up, we will no longer run away
we will stop, as soon as you stop blowing brains
the world should be a better place
we are people, equal, we will not stand down
stop you from going any further
imagine it happened to your friend
you found him dead
shot eight times in the head
only we could relate to losing a person
families are done with it
over with it, we will not go on with this
flash your lights, but we ain’t having it
ain’t never stopping, so how will you live?
trade my heart for my life
never my love for a lie, in this world of hate
the easiest way to die, is to step outside
police gon’ shoot you if you cross that line
but they done gone too far, no consent at all
ain’t no time for no fun, ain’t no time for games
it’s time for love, ain’t got no time for no lames
we need to stand up, tryna make a change
the world should never be a place of hate
you splatter the people, put blood on the plate
how would you like it if you found yourself in a grave?
would it be great?
no, but you still do it anyways
[chorus]
b stands for black
what we represent for
they come to your door
shoot up your home
love is a privilege, what we need now
we are one, not done
our protests are not over
if you see these people, you better hide

you better pull over once they start flashing them lights
only reason we here is this is bigger than black and white, yeah

[verse 4]
you haven’t felt what people felt
we are not just someone else
our life ain’t false sense
but it just can’t make sense
not all whites are racist
we just tryna be people
not tryna hide our faces
we got to stand up for ourselves, and our people, but what happened racial equality?
y’all choosing quantity over quality
just get ready for what you about to see
this life ain’t comedy, yeah

[chorus]
b stands for black
what we represent for
they come to your door
shoot up your home
love is a privilege, what we need now

you better pull over once they start flashing them lights
only reason we here is this is bigger than black and white, yeah

[verse 5]
i be rappin’ on beats, and you know that it’s me
y’all think you stuntin’, but you just cramping your personality
y’all got to feel my feelings
the only person who can feel that is me
need a heart, don’t need no lungs to breathe
tryna fight for our nationality
yeah, we be turning them flames up
just tryna stand up for our nation
tryna rise to the occasion
heartbreak, and i can’t really explain it
but just hold on, wild is an understatement
blood on my hands, but i am a victim, how did i turn into a suspect?
you were ‘posed to protect
we got to fight for justice
see them red and blue lights, we start runnin’
i got power, now i say something
we can’t just sit there, and do nothing
r.i.p. to my brother and sisters
you guys were there to lift us
they gon’ start runnin’ us down then k!ll us
they cannot feel us, (feel us)

[chorus]
b stands for black
what we represent for
they come to your door
shoot up your home
love is a privilege, what we need now
we are one, not done
our protests are not over
if you see these people, you better hide
keep a gun if you go outside
you better pull over once they start flashing them lights
only reason we here is this is bigger than black and white, yeah
