Stand up

Cause you are standing for nothing

 

Just shut up

Cause your words mean nothing

 

Everyone is at each other’s throats

Everyone thinking that they know things that they don’t know

Everyone painting the third coat on the wall of belief

Send me relief

 

When I call the police will they just kill me?

Will they just kill you?

When I call the police will they just protect me cause I’m white skinned too?

 

Every time you talk the system knows

Everywhere you walk the cameras go

Everything I say you already know

Everything in state is about to blow

Way back before Jim Crow

 

When I call the police will they just kill me?

Will they just kill you?

When I call the police will they just protect me cause I’m white skinned too?

 

Stand up

Cause you are standing for nothing

 

Just shut up

Cause your words mean nothing

 

Everybody stares like I’m just my gender

But I’m a living soul with my own agenda

Tell me how you are the priest and the prosecution

Tell me how you have a God that loves executions

 

Corruption in the blue line ripples out

Eruption in the streets bring the few and proud

Attention when the knees fall to the ground

Silently loud

 

When I call the police will they just kill me?

Will they just kill you?

When I call the police will they just protect me cause I’m white skinned too?

 

Every day that passes I’m angrier

Every time the cops get a hall pass – build another barrier

Now it’s stereotypical

No I’m not cynical

Political hypocritical

 

Corruption in the blue line ripples out

Eruption in the streets bring the few and proud

Attention when the knees fall to the ground

Silently loud

 

Stand up

Cause you are standing for nothing

 

Just shut up

Cause your words mean nothing

 

If you walked a mile in my shoes

You’d probably take em off wouldn’t you

If you had to live in my truth

you’d probably tell a lie wouldn’t you

 

When I call the police will they just kill me?

Will they just kill you?

 

Stand up

Cause you stand for nothing

 

Nothing

You stand for nothing

 

Stand up

Cause you stand for nothing

 

Just shut up

Cause your words mean nothing

 

Stand up

Cause you stand for nothing

 

Just shut up

Cause your words mean nothing
