  • Am I
    Am I
    Gonna be a witness?
    Gonna be a witness?
    Am I
    Am I
    Gonna be a witness?
    Gonna be a witness?
    Am I
    Am I
    Gonna be a witness?
    Gonna be a witness?
    Am I
    Am I
    Gonna be a witness?
    Gonna be a witness?

    Right now we could use a little pick-me-up
    Seems like the whole damn nation's trying to take us down
    When your brother's dying
    Mother's crying
    TV's lying
    All the reason's in the world don't mean shit to me now

    See we thought that we saw that he had a gun
    Thought that it looked like he started to run
    Thought that we saw that he had a gun
    Thought that it looked like he started to run

    Am I
    Am I
    Gonna be a witness?
    Just gonna be a witness?
    Am I
    Am I
    Gonna be a witness?
    Gonna be a witness?

    Do you need another reason to get up
    See how fast they turn when you're looking up
    They say your dangerous
    Cancerous
    Not to trust
    Now everybody that's brown can get the fuck on the ground

    See we thought that we saw that he had a gun
    Thought that it looked like he started to run
    Thought that we saw that he had a gun
    Thought that it looked like he started to run

    Am I
    Am I
    Gonna be a witness?
    Gonna be a witness?
    Am I
    Am I
    Gonna be a witness?
    Gonna be a witness?

    Gonna be a witness? (Gonna be a witness?)
    Just gonna be a witness? (Gonna be a witness?)
    Am I
    Woah
    Gonna be a witness?
    Just a witness?
    I
