Black Lives

The time has come to take a stand
It’s out of hand, we’re taking charge of our lives
Ain’t gonna walk away, not this time
We’re gonna take our time, until we change the system
Cops are killing babies can’t you see?
Everybody sees and it’s an outrage
So let’s get involved, it affects us all. Let’s right this wrong,

And these black lives mean something to me.
Brothers and sisters murdered in the street
These black lives mean something to me.
Hands up, i can’t breathe

Folks are angry. We need relief from all this grief
And it weighs us down. Accountability makes it real
Lock up those killer cops and put them in jail
Protest for justice, protest for peace
Protest black live getting murdered in the streets
and we don’t stop (no) and we can’t quit (no)
And we’ll never stop

And these brown lives mean something to me.
Babies and children captured in the street
These brown lives mean something to me.
Hands off, set them free
