Outlawz – Finally feat. Ed Bone & Mar$eli$

Intro:
If I knew your son, or your daughter, what is common matter?
If it’s your son, or your daughter, what is common matter?
Oh oooh oh

Man I’m so sick and tired of bein’ sick and tired, where did we go wrong?
Prolly’ when they threw us on that boat and didn’t bring us on
Yeah that was a long time ago, man them days is long gone
But we never will forget, nasty time would move on
Yeah what’s goin’ on right now, systematic racism
Man that pig just shot him in his back, he had his babies with him
How much can we take before we break? That’s what I wanna know
Pressure bust pipes, ‘ventually this shit is gonna blow
Politicin’ with my bro, tryna make some sense of this
End up just shakin’ my head, we dyin’ over senseless shit
I know how my pen can get, so I let that bitch speak
Spittin’ war on these beats, been the voice of the streets
Heaven in this shit, knee deep, but I see it clear
I may not make it with you, but I know we gon’ get there [I know
And the time is now, ain’t no turnin’ round, straight ahead
They said a change was gonna come, I think we finally there

Chorus:
Pardon me brother
Who is darker than ?
We gotta stop killin’ ourselves [Yeah
If we gon’ make it through [They keep killin’ us
They keep killin’ us, and we killin’ us
Black lives gon’ be few [Oh
They start rebuildin’ us and healin’ us
Sayin’ God’ll get us through
It’s lightnin’

We tell ’em “Black lives matter”, but they still can’t feel us [Feel us
Our taxes pay the wages for the people tryin’ to kill us
Get us out the way, that’s how they doin’ our people [Doin’ our people
They treat us like we less, while they tell us we equal
We be fallin’ for that shit, I done beefin’ over nothin’
Talkin’ like a gangster ’til them police wanna cuff us
Why we actin’ petty, out here flossin’ on your feti?
‘Til them consequences come, nigga, you ain’t even ready
Had us learnin’ lies, had us fightin’ all they wars
Shackled up in chains while we doin’ all they chores
Now there’s little kids homeless, with nothin’ to eat [Eat
And they still wanna lynch a nigga dead in the street [Dead in the street]

Chorus:
Pardon me brother
Who is darker than ?
We gotta stop killin’ ourselves [Yeah
If we gon’ make it through [They keep killin’ us
They keep killin’ us, and we killin’ us
Black lives gon’ be few [Oh
They start rebuildin’ us and healin’ us
Sayin’ God’ll get us through
It’s lightnin’

Outro:
If it’s your son, or your daughter, what is common matter?
You bet his friend you did one, but it’s common matter
If it’s your son, or your daughter, what is common matter?
Oh, I
You bet his friend you did one, but it’s common matter
