lyrics

Loaded guns, just point and shoot.
The screams are muffled,
by the protectors boot.
People treadin’ lightly in the streets.
Where once was joy is now, nervous defeat.
How many times have we asked, and we cried,
for man to stop killing and answer why?
Why is race frequently, the common denominator?
Drop the hate , and make one love the mediator.

Your life matters, their life, (their life, their lives mattered too!)
We must stand hand in hand,
come together among all of man.
Make the enemies excuses shatter, (shatter)
lets show everyone their lives (mattered mattered too)

People dancin’ lightly above it all,
this society is now,
Don’t blame one, blame all.
How many times have we asked, and we cried,
for man to stop killing and answer why?
Why is race frequently, the common denominator?
Drop the hate , and make one love the mediator.

Your life matters, their life, (their life, their lives mattered too!)
We must stand hand in hand,
come together among all of man.
Make the enemies excuses shatter, (shatter)
lets show everyone their lives (mattered mattered too)

Call this my contribution, Call this my revelation,
brothas die on the daily, Refugee's banned from nations.
racial extermination, if powers that be can make it,
Without a plan for the people, there ain't no way we can shake it.
If my black life matters, than prove it.
Yeah, i'm a human with a black attitude and,
and if they try to shut us down we'll start a movement.
Where everybody stands together as a nuisance.
So shine a light on the streets, don't try to mute what we speak.
No matter where you come from, if you get cut, then you bleed.

And yo, i'm prayin for progress, and falling down on my knees.
We need a Hampton a Martin, we need another Ali.
And yo, my colour is deep, all the way to my soul.
No matter what you go through, if you don't know, you don't know,
But if you're willing to listen then you'll find somewhere to go,
and you were made to be more, and they can't stop what we know.

Your life matters, their life, (their life, their lives mattered too!)
We must stand hand in hand,
come together among all of man.
Make the enemies excuses shatter, (shatter)
lets show everyone their lives (mattered mattered too)

Your life matters, their life, their life, their lives.
If my black life matters, then prove it.

Your life matters, their life, their life, their lives.
Yo, i'm a human with a black attitude and,
