What's a Life Worth? Lyrics

Yo

What's a life worth to you

Roll to the mini mart, skittles and a tea
Spent 3 damn dollars, got shot by the police
You're trained to deal with threats and you said he's menacing
He's not a threat you stupid ass, he's just past 17
Im not gonna say its race, like either lame wing
'Cause they're the people who enjoy to see us hating
But what i know is that this isn't prima facie
'Cause power hungry cops get itchy with their playthings
And then family mourns the death the cops have meddled in
A year later no charges just a settlement
So whats a life worth? 3 million and 11 cents
Or maybe just an interview with wolf on CNN
I'm sick and tired of seeing this every day now
I want us all to get along, but I don't know how
So whats a life worth, wont let nobody dodge around
Taxpayers money pay for cops to click clack blao

People dying every day, but
Whats a life worth
And people suffering for pay, but
Whats a life worth
Suicide is still the summit
Whats a life worth
Said they did a number on our budget
What's a life worth As if I haven't said enough, I'm talking suicide
'Cause people still don't understand why i would wanna die
Well if you've done it all before with nothin else to try
You would take up every offer up to leave the pain behind
But the logic of suicide is not what I'm trying to find
Toll Free 273-8255
I wanna know why America won't listen yet
I've screamed it out super loud its like they're fucking deaf
Deaf and blind Helen Keller but still try to dance
Like Old Yeller I'm put down without no second chance
You make suicidal people think they're lost causes
Mandated therapists filled with long pauses
The system made me think for years my brain is fucking broken
And if i thought i couldn't make it man i wouldn't've spoken
But what happens when a kids alone and stops hoping
Whats a life worth to you? That kid is not a token

People dying every day, but
Whats a life worth
And people suffering for pay, but
Whats a life worth
Suicide is still the summit
Whats a life worth
Said they did a number on our budget
What's a life worth

What did I say
Hands up, on the ground
Get on the ground
