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

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
