Blue Scholars - Oscar Grant Lyrics

Shoot the cops, shoot the cops
Shoot the cops, take the cameras out to pocket people
Shoot the cops, shoot the cops
Shoot the cops, take the cameras out to pocket.

If they wanna shoot at us, got the right to shoot em back
They shoot us from the back but they say its from the front
You warned even if you aren't armed
they will find an excuse to do you harm
If they think you’re out of line
In every city's urban jurisdiction you will find,
some people making livings outta creepin from behind
and even if they behave bad most the time they know
an officer to blame they need to let it go
because a family at home, a mortgage to support
in times when its hella hard as fuck to find a job
If you wanna keep yours you’d better not inform
don’t wanna be .. wrong side of the law
but guess what the people got a weapon on their own
a lens and a shutter built into a mobile phone
Evidence admissible in court even more documented cases of what been going on.

Chorus:
Shoot the cops, shoot the cops
Shoot the cops, take the cameras out to pocket people
Shoot the cops, shoot the cops
Shoot the cops, take the cameras out to pocket.


I hear them sayin that this shit don't never happen in Seattle
And if it does is just a couple bad apples
But if you keep it count you will see this shit is not the apple is the tree
Its rotten underneath. Oh say, can you see no way that is true
They don’t wanna see another South Central '92 or Seattle 99
Even if it happens what they’re sayin on the news
bad people mad justifyin the abuse
and youth especially with darkest features be in target into proof
So people can have the truth now keep that feelin in mind when you ask a pig to smile at you
I ain't talkin 1 or 2 3 or 4 5. what you’re so afraid of if you ain't committin crime
We are merely doin what a citizen should do
You'd better act right if I were you the world is watching you.

[Chorus:]
