No Justice

  • See my shit is getting worse before it's getting better
    It's like the people got a curse, can't nobody stay together
    I watch you gun my people down, plus we're killing off each other, no, ooh oh
    Ain't no justice for the brothers, no, no

    See you praying right behind this car
    Only thing he thinking is this could be the end of me
    So officer, what's the problem?
    It's like every time I turn around you people always messing with me
    He say you look suspicious
    And you fit the description of a call about a robbery
    Then some more cops came
    I keep my hands where they can see 'em, I know this could be the end of me
    They say that, we are all created equal but ain't nothing about us equal
    You know that (You know that)
    There can never be no justice when killing us is legal
    Somebody's gotta take a stand
    Sacrifice and be a man
    Somebody's gotta take a stand, no, no

    See my shit is getting worse before it's getting better
    It's like the people got a curse, can't nobody stay together
    I watch you gun my people down, plus we're killing off each other, no, ooh oh
    Ain't no justice for the brothers

    See my shit is getting worse (no, no) before it's getting better (no, no)
    It's like the people got a curse (no, no), can't nobody stay together (no, no)
    I watch you gun my people down (no, no), plus we're killing off each other (no, no), no, ooh oh (no, no)
    Ain't no justice for the brothers (no, no), no, no

    4AM in the morning, police banging real hard on my mama front door
    Screaming open this shit right now
    You got twenty more seconds before we tear this door down
    Then they handcuffed my mama
    Then they handcuffed my granny
    Handcuffed my sister
    Then some more cops came
    Them crackers tore the whole house up, never even showed a warrant
    They say that, we are all created equal but ain't nothing about us equal
    You know that (you know that)
    There can never be no justice when killing us is legal
    Somebody's gotta take a stand
    Sacrifice and be a man
    Somebody's gotta take a stand

    See my shit is getting worse before it's getting better
    It's like the people got a curse, can't nobody stay together
    I watch you gun my people down, plus we're killing off each other, no, ooh oh
    Ain't no justice for the brothers

    See my shit is getting worse (no, no) before it's getting better (no, no)
    It's like the people got a curse (no, no), can't nobody stay together (no, no)
    I watch you gun my people down (no, no), plus we're killing off each other (no, no), no, ooh oh (no, no)
    Ain't no justice for the brothers (no, no), no, no Writer/s: TYRONE WILLIAM GRIFFIN, DERNST EMILE, GABRIEL GRIFFIN
