Chains

Album: Single release only (2015)
  • I'mma get mine, you should get yours too
    Shooting, shooting, shooting, man them boys always shoot
    (American dream, American man too)
    Shooting, shooting, shooting, watch them boys always shoot
    (And I-I-I-I am so tired of being insecure
    So tired of)
    I've had enough running
    Running, and running and running and running
    (Running)
    Running, and running and running and running and
    (Running enough)
    To sum it up
    I don't give a fuck
    I had enough
    Y'all give a fuck? No
    Light it on fire
    I had enough
    Running, and running and running and running
    Running, and running and running and running and

    You act like the change
    Tryna throw me in chains
    Don't act like you saving us
    It's still the same
    Man don't act like I made it up
    You blaming us
    Let's keep it one hundred
    You gave the name to us
    Nigga
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    You put the shame on us

    Now, now, now shame on us
    Now
    Now, now, now shame on us
    Now, now, now

    A moment of silence
    American school and we in church too (Don't shoot)
    Shooting, shooting, shooting, we the prey
    Always shoot (Prey)
    I'mma be trill, you should be trill too
    You don't even gotta talk we just shoot
    And I feel so tired of being insecure
    To sum it up
    Don't give a fuck
    Light it on fire

    Yeah, yo check
    I am Sugar Ray Robinson, Booker T. Washington
    W. E. B. Du Bois, I'm the modern one
    Yelling at Senators, Presidents, Congressmen
    We got a problem that needs some acknowledgement
    I am no prison commodity, not just a body you throw in a cell
    For any reason, just to bother me
    Just for your quota, so it's rest in peace to Sean Bell
    Sleep in peace Eric Garner (Sandra)
    Every street, every corner
    Conspiracy, new world order
    I spoke to Tamir Rice mom and she told me "be strong"
    It won't be long 'til it's justice
    They want our votes but refuse the discussion
    On how certain cops they shoot us for nothing
    Revolution is coming

    You act like the change (The land of opportunity)
    Tryna throw me in chains (The land of Unity)
    Don't act like you saving us (Brotherhood, trust)
    It's still the same (America)
    Man don't act like I made it up
    You blaming us (You know)
    Let's keep it one hundred
    You gave the name to us
    Nigga
    We still in chains (Hey so what up my nigga?)
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    You see these chains?
    We still in chains
    I can't see
    We still in chains
    The difference from how we used to be
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    You put the shame on us

    Now, now, now shame on us
    Now
    Now, now, now shame on us
    Now, now, now
    You put the shame on us

    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    We still in chains
    You put the shame on us Writer/s: PAUL EPWORTH, USHER RAYMOND, IZZY AVILA, JOHNNY NAJERA, NASIR JONES, ANDRE BOWMAN, BIBI BOURELLY, ARTHUR STRONG, MIGUEL GANDLEMAN
