Tink – Tell The Children Lyrics

Don't shoot
Tell the children to watch out, watch out
Don't shoot
Tell the children to watch out, watch out
Don't shoot

I'm here, I'm putting my life on the line for my people, I'm putting life on the line for everybody in this country. I believe in equality for everybody. And why do cops tell us we can't be like, like you said, we have a right to defend ourselves. Marshall Law

They have complete domain over us, they are like Gods. If they tell you not to do something, you cannot do it. And if you do, they will treat you like a dog. You will be shot down. Well at least for a black man, I'm not sure for everybody but I do understand that, I hope it's not like that for everyone

Tell the children to, watch out
Keep runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
They're gainin' on us, oh they're gainin' on us
Keep runnin', runnin', runnin', runnin'
(Keep on, keep on)

Plot twists, an enemy and his kids
We in the crib, it's a quarter past ten
"Where your brother at?" Run up in his room, pulled the cover back
Where I'm from niggas leave the porch and they don't make it back
Police life, nana starts pacing
"Fuck the pigs want, what brings you here on this occasion?"
Pow, pow, pow, pow, pow
Boys been gunned down, your boys is having fun now
With our blood and our sons, disturbing the peace
He's more afraid of him when he's the one with the piece?
Aaah, nana drop, she hollering "Why God?!"
[?] me tell us it's nothin' but their job
They profile us
Then they wonder why he grow up being prejudice and so violent
They trigger us down from the rich to the poor
They'll fuck with you cause they can't believe that it's yours
Registration, I'll give these fuckin' streets motivation
They wanna take us out so they start making allegations
I'm fed up, police comin' so we sped up
My nana told me "fuck twelve keep yo' head up"


[Verse 2:]
King died for us niggas living in poverty
50 years later we still don't have equality, it bothers me
A badge is a pass to do whatever
So now we living in fear of the people here to protect us
Yo, they lie and disrespect us, kill us, and then neglect us
The problem when nobody sees the view from our perspective
My people shed blood from the acres you had stole
Now my people shedding blood on the gravel left in the cold
How these news anchors talking 'bout the struggle
These niggas had it good, never had a pat down up in they hood
Never had to take a charge, never had to stop the car
Never had to hit the stands so you would never understand
Be one hunnid, I'll meet you at the top just like a summit
My flows are repugnant, I'ma make you sound redundant
I really am messiah, bless the [?] before you tie it
Then I'm grabbing out I'll hook 'em [?]
Them niggas see me flyin' uh
