Peace Lyrics

So special
Another body slain in the streets
Umm hmm
And we been needing change
Needing peace
Umm hmm
We done and we can’t take it no further
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Know you hear them angels crying
Who sick and tired
Of being sick and tired
Who neighborhoods
Is being gentrified
For black and brown people
Been dying
We need plug
We need an appliance
And we forced into silence
So we fuck around and riot
We been treating this pandemic
Like its something to survive
I say
It's just another day in life
With a freedom never meant for you and i
So what we do
We do or die
Treat traffic violations
Like suicide
Me and mines we summarized
If we all criminals
Then no-one can empathize
so before Jacob Blake
We all felt paralyzed
Buy a pair of lies
On right and left sides
Just go to church
And pay your tithes
The democrats and the republicans
Telling us both the same thang
And that's that they don’t really fuck with you
Fuck a vote
Another body slain in the streets
Umm hmm
And we been needing change
Needing peace
Umm hmm
We done and we can’t take it no further
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Know you hear them angels crying
How you shoot a father
Right in front of his kids
That's eerily familiar
To what they did to our kin
The been trying to emasculate our men
And the only way to do it
Is wit fear
That's false evidence appearing real
Ain't no real power
In the badge and the sheild
I know its the union
Making sure you get cleared
Cause they them niggas
Backing political careers
Now will they lynch
This nigga here
Kill the man
But they can never kill ideas
I know my words
Are worth more than my tears
I wasted potential chasing bitches
For a couple years
Now we war plan
Over asparagus tears
See how I cooking
You’d a prolly thought I made a mil
Which means I’ve tooken
Reparations
Of less than a bill
Master never slaving for a deal
Every time one killed
It's like the man in the mirror
Whoah
Another body slain in the streets
Umm hmm
And we been needing change
Needing peace
Umm hmm
We done and we can’t take it no further
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Know you hear them angels crying
These days
I think the peace that we need
May not be a peace
That's all so serene
It may just be a piece
That comes with a red beam
Or just any piece of steel
That means you still get to dream
Now
Tell me where’s our Dr. King
Fuck it
Wheres our Malcolm X
If I give up my respect
To finesse another death
That's just living with regret
When I have nothing left
The chickens coming home to roost
Birds to nest
I let the fly shit rest
For black panthers crest
If I gotta die for my rights
Then the answers yes
Kill me for anything less
Its white power success
Come on
Every black American's a veteran
Boy we been at war since elementary
Messy as elections get
How are we the people
Ever to trust the delegates
Another body slain in the streets
Umm hmm
And we been needing change
Needing peace
Umm hmm
We done and we can’t take it no further
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Ain't no body job to stop this shit huh?
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Know you hear them angels crying

So special
Another body slain in the streets
Umm hmm
And we been needing change
Needing peace
Umm hmm
We done and we can’t take it no further
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Heard the angels crying
They scream murder
Murder
Know you hear them angels crying
