A Dying Plea Vol. 2 - Anti-Flag feat. DE'WAYNE, Marcia Richards, Jordan Montgomery & Tom Morello

When just to breathe is a dying plea
Your freedom falls only skin deep
Out of reach like an American Dream
Out of reach like an American

We can't breathe
We can't breathe
We can't breathe
We can't breathe, breathe, breathe

Melanin, I know on the other side when they see my face
Melanin and only melanin leave trace
They'll step to protect their right
To forget the debt that they owe my race
Suckle at the teat and they get a

Likkle treat like a lifetime in first place (place)
All the innocent are gonna suffer when
They gun out and nuh means to decide on why
While all them and the others will protect them, discard us

Throw us at the back or under the bus
Scream we'll serve and protect not trust
Stick to the colour guide, watch better be the right swatch
And nuh care about us

We can't breathe
We can't breathe
We can't breathe
We can't breathe, breathe, breathe

I left the crib in my white tee, yeah bitch I'm icy
The public think I'm thuggin, shots fired now my tee blooded
These fucking cops ain't rushing a nigga dead, they love it

Turn the body cam off while we calling for our mothers
Bitch I been feeling some evil deeds
I might kill a cop let the trigger squeeze
24 years years being black a scary thing but

I still gotta die a legend if they come for me
Only care for us when we on a tee
We tired of singing songs I want a bullet in they head
Middle of the street that's on everything fucking let me be

We can't breathe
We can't breathe
We can't breathe
We can't breathe, breathe, breathe

Black in America, breaking the barriers
Cops killing us that's serial
Land of milk and honey, no cereal

Preaching the real
Politicians vote and passing the bills
You posting a square while blacks in

The street getting murdered and killed
Rap industry, we takeover for real
Driving while black get you out of your deal
Killing the game left you out of the will

Writing this live from the City of Steel
Karen's they lie, you get Emmitt Tilled
Karen's they lie, you get Emmitt Tilled
Now how does that feel

Turning the tables, you don't get a meal
Seat at the table that eating for real
Officers kneel until you can't breathe
Kaepernick kneel can't play for a team

When just to breathe is a dying plea
Your freedom falls only skin deep
Out of reach like an American Dream
Out of reach like an American

We can't breathe
We can't breathe
We can't breathe
We can't breathe, breathe, breathe
We can't breathe
