J. COLE - Be Free Lyrics

(Verse)
And I'm in denial
And it don't take no x-ray to see through my smile
I know, I be on the go
And it ain't no drink out there that could numb my soul, oh, no

(Chorus)
All we want to do is take these chains off
All we want to do is break the chains off, man
All we want to do is be free
All we want to do is be free
All we want to do is take these chains off
All we want to do is break the chains off me
All we want to do is be free
All we want to do is be free

(Verse 2)
Can you tell me why every time I step outside I see my niggas die? Ooh
I'm letting you know
That it ain't no gun they make that could kill my soul
Oh, no!

(Chorus)
All we want to do is take these chains off
All we want to do is break the chains off, man
All we want to do is be free
All we want to do is be free
All we want to do is take these chains off
All we want to do is break the chains off me
All we want to do is be free
All we want to do is be free

(Interlude: Michael Brown shooting witness)
And it was like officers pulling him inside the club
He's tryna pull away and at no time the officer said
He was willing to do anything until he pulled out his weapon
His weapon was ? and he said 'I'll shoo you!'
'Wanna shoot' and in the same moment, the first shot went off
And we looked up, he was shot and there was blood comin' from him
We took off runnin'

(Bridge)
Are we all alone fightin' on our own
Please give me a chance, I don't wanna dance!
Something's got me down, I will stand my ground
Don't just stand around! Don't just stand around!

(Interlude: Michael Brown shooting witness)
And that's what we confronted, I pleaded for my life
Cause I was fearing for my life
And I hear about a first call that I saw
My friend, he kept runnin'
He told me to keep runnin' cause he feared for me too
So as he was runnin', the officer was trying to get out the car
And once he got out the car he pursued my friend
And said his weapon was drawn
Now he didn't see any weapon drawn at him or anything like that
He was goin' for no weapon
His weapon was already drawn when he got out the car
He shot again, and once my friend felt that shot
He turned around and put his hands on the earth
And he started to get down, but the officer still approached
With his weapon drawn, and he fired seven more shots
And my friend died

(Chorus)
All we want to do is take these chains off
All we want to do is break the chains off
All we want to do is be free
All we want to do is be free
All we want to do is take these chains off
All we want to do is break the chains off
All we want to do is be free
All we want to do is be free
