All across the country they were marching through the street Protesting a lynching sayin' abolish the police Cops line the block and charge down the road Destroying cars and property and breaking peoples phones The communities blood is pouring through the street Tear Gas, Rubber Bullet, Bludgeon and Repeat They kill black and brown folks as if it was their brand Look at all their weapons, look at our hands Mr. Mayor could you tell me tell me please Is that an occupying force, or a cop on his beat? Tanks and shields and modified guns Out there protecting and serving everyone Well the lawlessness you see that is pouring through the streets All of it's a reflection of a lawless police What do they expect, some slogans for a march Nothing for a black man outlined in chalk If you want this country to have a better lease Take that first step, demilitarize the police Mr. Mayor could you tell me tell me please Is that an occupying force, or a cop on his beat? Look at their weapons Look at our hands Look at our weapons Look at our hands

Broken Windows The mourning children and widows Shadows born from atrocities To people prizing property Wrongful death is not anomaly It’s just another day in America Another dead blackbird in the hysteria No they can’t seem to escape the poplar tree The crowd watches another human bleed It’s just another day Money and Power Holds on to the final hour From Slave catchers to Blue Badges Always protecting the rich and lavish Loving when the black man sings Privileged liberals never budge Thinking these things don’t happen much but it’s It’s just another day in America Another dead blackbird in the hysteria No they can’t seem to escape the poplar tree The crowd watches another human bleed It’s just another day There’s gonna be a lynching tomorrow Tomorrow another family graces sorrow Sorrow passed through generations As people forget again But the revolution cannot wait Someday that great levee breaks Until the day the calendar says it’s
