Track Name: Runnin'
What's the difference from gunshots and fireworks?
One goes off twice a year, the other is like a curse
One the cops will allow, but it could put you in a hearse
I'm tired of runnin', I'd rather spend life tryna rehearse
That hearse, matching the color of the skin
That's within
No coincidence
Sending in ten
Rin Tin Tins
For wrong sentences
I'll make it safer for my kin
I figured I'll start it off by just picking up this pen
Pacoima California
Half will get a diploma
The other half a coma
I had that nerd persona
But this ain't for me, I gotta do it for my people
Cause it seems like the police starting to think that we ain't equal
As if our minds are feeble
As if our deaths are legal
They can be so deceitful
They don't deserve that eagle
So why shorten our own numbers, there is no sequel

All my life I just been runnin'
I swear I gotta quit this runnin'
They still gunning, I'm running
Someone do something
I'm tired of all this runnin'
They treating us like we're nothing

Reporting officer shootings, how is that voluntary?
These deaths ain't arbitrary
Not even monetary
And on the contrary
Didn't put the klan to rest
They've always been out there, but now in navy blue vests
Cause we're the police, there's nothing left that we need to address
Don't like it? Get on the concrete and get your lungs compressed
So go on negro, turn that beat up a couple notches
Cause we still gon' do what we want and get out with zero charges
Land of the free, home of the brave, where's the joke roll?
This may be a rimshot, but tell me, what's your goal?
