I wish that I could outrun the sun...the sun (4x)
Guilty till proven innocent
Puttin fear in the citizens
No protection or service
No wonder that we so militant
You must think I'm an idiot
The crime rate is ridiculous
Tension in my city is
Overflowing I'm sick of this
Brothers are killing brothers
And ain't no calling for help
When the help ain't on your side
You better off going for self
And I think about the day I'm explaining it to my kids
That they seeing you as a threat
And it ain't about what you did
You can follow every direction,
And still they can split ya wig
Or haul you off in a wagon
Cause a description you fit
Meanwhile these rappers chillin
And glorifying the killing
And bragging about they millions
It's brainwashing the children
Hard to keep a smile on, and tell em to keep trying
when every time I look up another brown kid is dying
It's cool to get the cash,
Be young and have a blast but
We'll never have a future if we can't shake the past
I wish that I could outrun...
All the stress & the pain cuz the outcome's
never good... If I could I would get away,
high speed on life's interstate... Ayee
And we just tryna outrun the sun,
we just tryna out outrun the sun &
we just tryna outrun the sun... yea
Gassed up with my shades on,
tires scrubbing the road i'm hoping Donald Faison
can make sense of this, cluelessness,
World's lacking a drive... How we gonna survive through this foolishness?
With the brainless they shameless,
I'm tryna spread love... So why you wanna label me as nameless?...
Cuz I stand out rather not fit in
with trends, get the message I send, who are you kidding?
And friends don't believe in my consciousness,
time to make a new tribe like Consequence,
Tried of the nonsense, when we gone change?..
Dying over green singing money ain't a thang!!
Banging colors, killing our brothers, ignoring prayers from mothers
sleeping on bed of lies, claiming that you still got it covered
this life will smother you, better be in tune with the moonlight
sun got us shady, Ran, said we leaving soon right?
No justice no peace, no country for old beef
No love for hard work, but we celebrate a thief
Columbus still got a holiday - making me wonder
How something that was already inhabited gets discovered
protesters, arent rioters and aren't looters,
Black men always get brought to justice when they're the shooter
Misdirected aggression destroying my own sections
But what you i when police ain't serving or protecting
So many questions, but not a lot of solutions, makes me ponder the words of mr Huey P Newton
My fear is not of death, but a death without a meaning,
I hit up my homie Z and we was in agreement
I could never condone violence, but
My people are sleeping with open eyelids - speaking volumes with your silence
change starts with me till the day we equal,
I say All lives matter, so power to the people
...power to the people
