about

I mean it's self explanatory

lyrics

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
