lyrics

i ain't trying to hear you talk about justice
when there ain't none for all, just all for some
we can't rest, so we stay stressed
break the chains but still we paid less
i wonder when that change is gonna come

i ain't trying to hear you talk about freedom
might be freedom to, but no freedom from
how you shake us, and you break us
all the pains you've taken to forsake us
make us wonder if that change is gonna come

don't talk about equality without no apology
a facade for us all to see, but the same old policy

CHORUS:
brothers keep on dying
mothers keep on crying
government keep lying
when will you see?
though it's all so frightening
don't see no indictments
so we must keep fighting
until we're free

i ain't trying to hear you talk about safety
but there you go, you got some kind of nerve
all your set does is disrespect us
and you sure as heck don't protect us
we all know who you protect and serve

I aint trying to hear you talk about equality 
If I should die for yours, you die for mine 
but you won’t though and we both know
that you sold ya soul to be the po po
and what you call the force is by design

but it’s all such a fallacy, all the brutality 
cause you still get ya salary, we get fatality 

CHORUS:
brothers keep on dying
mothers keep on crying
government keep lying
when will you see?
though it's all so frightening
don't see no indictments
so we must keep fighting
until we're free
