    Anderson .Paak - Lockdown
    Lyrics:
    You shoulda been downtown, the people are rising
    We thought it was a lock down, they opened up fire
    Dem bullets was flying
    They said it was a lockdown, got damn lie
    Oh my! Time heals all, but you outta time now
    Judge gotta watch us from the clock tower
    Little tear gas cleared the whole place out
    I’ll be back with the hazmat for the next round
    We was tryna protest and the fires broke out
    Lookout for the secret agents they be planted in the crowd
    Said it’s civil unrest
    But you sleep so sound
    like you don’t hear the screams when we catchin beat downs
    Stayin quiet when they killin niggas
    But you speak loud when we riot
    got opinions comin from a place of privilege
    Sicker than the covid how they did him on the ground
    Speaking of the covid is it still goin around?
    Oh why don’t you tell me bout the lootin what’s that really all about?
    Cause they throw away black lives like paper towels
    Plus unemployment rate what? 40 million now
    Killed a man in broad day, might never see a trial
    We just wana break chains like slaves in the south
    Started in the north end but we ended downtown
    Riot cops tried to block, now we got a showdown... down
    You shoulda been downtown, the people are rising
    We thought it was a lock down, they opened up fire
    Dem bullets was flying
    Who said it was a lockdown, got damn lie
    (Ooh wee)
    Lockdown we ain’t gotta stop cause they tell us to
    Downtown where I got popped with the rubber bullet
    Tre pound, Got it in my name now
    Imma shoot it
    Jay Rock:
    Turn on your tube dog, look how they do us
    Knee on our necks, bullets in backs
    Stimulus checks strictly for blacks
    History repeating, people scared to eat a chicken
    Everybody going vegan, what they put in it?
    Look at the world we’re living in
    They got us shook in it
    You go on your jog, then your color might get you took in it
    The man in the mirror can’t look away you gotta look at it
    Black lives matter so what it means when they shoot at it?
    Generation genocide, what happened to enterprise
    Heard the man infiltrated, Black Panthers reenergize
    Ain’t nothing to figure out
    They trying to kill us out, if I take a kneel, see my fist I’ma kill it now
    Just think, bullshit you gotta filter out
    Are you really ready for the smoke like a swisher house?
    Ready for the revolution who ready to riot?
    It won’t be televised, so tell me who ready to die?
    If downtown going up, where we at with the shits?
    We at the liquor store nigga, bout to get us a fifth
    Know they boutta start looting, get the gloves and masks
    Watch out for them tanks when they rolling past
    Never understand why they do it
    someone cut the channel off the news ‘fore I lose it
    I ain’t even trippin if you wit it, then we lootin
    Help put this Louis in the back of Suzuki
    He had to break down so smoothly
    Ain’t gone say it’s not about race but we movin hoe, pow!
    Got the tre pound, had to put it in my name now
    Wish a nigga play now
    Any given day I’ll be headed to the pulpit
    Say a little prayer, matter fact I need two of em
    Ooh won’t he do it, won’t he do it
    Ooh this ain’t 92 so we into new rules
    Niggas got hip, so we don’t loot the projects
    Bout to hit rodeo with my little cousin Marcus
    Some one threw a whole brick into Neumann Marcus
    Help me put the whole mannequin in the charger
    You shoulda been downtown(down), the people are rising(look around)
    We thought it was a lock down(lockdown), they opened up fire (had to get low)
    Dem bullets was flying(down, down)
    Who said it was a lockdown, got damn lie
    (Ooh wee)Lockdown we ain’t gotta stop cause they tell us to
    Downtown where I got popped with the rubber bullet
    Tre pound, Got it in my name now
    Imma shoot it
    Lockdown we ain’t gotta stop cause they tell us to
    Downtown

You can't start a revolution by excluding the majority population and condemning people who disagree with dumb down rhetoric. Black lives matter, no one of any status debates that. This is deeper than black vs white, left vs right, or people vs police. If that's the only lens you want to view the world through than thats all you will ever see.

IN EARLY 2020 A COVID 19 SLAVE SHIP RAMMED THE USS LIBERTY. Liberty survivors washed up on the shores of discontent. The rest were weighed down by their chains of consent IN SHARK INFESTED WATERS. BTW. Remember the movie 'Jaws'? The Italian word is "Fauci". It's a film about a rogue shark attacking beach goers. Wake up "COVERT 19" house zombies! You are being digested in the belly of consent. http://www.prayorbeprey.com/
