The Game - Don't Shoot Lyrics

[Intro:]
Our Lord, grant us good in this world
And good in the life to come keep us safe from the torment of the fire
As we keep our hands up high and scream for justice!
Ferguson, rest in peace Mike Brown
And all the young soldiers out there!
God, help us!

Hook:
Time to take a stand and save our future
(Like we all got shot, we all got shot!)
Thrown up our hands don't let them shoot us
(Cause we all we got, we all we got)
God ain't put us on the Earth to get murdered,
It’s murder!
God ain't put us on the Earth to get murdered,
It’s murder!
Don't point your weapons at me!

Seen the pictures, feel the pain,
Scandalous how they murder son
Tired of them killing us,
I'm on my way to Ferguson
Talked to TIP, I talked to Diddy,
Then my brothers walking with me.
Mothers crying stop the riots,
We ain't got to chalk the city.
I seen Cole out there, thought I should go out there
They left that boy for hours in the cold out there.
They’re killing teens, they’re killing dreams
(It's murder!)

Yo, come on!
We gotta stick together,
We all we got!
Police taking shots and I ain't talking bout Ciroc!
I'm talking about Emmett Till,
I'm talking about Ezell Ford
I'm talking about Sean Bell,
They never go to jail for!
Trayvon over Skittles, Mike Brown Cigarillos
History keeps repeating itself like a Biggie instrumental.
America's a glass house and my revenge is mental
Rather use my brain than throw a cocktail through a window.

I got the keys to the city; still we left in the cold
Hands in the sky, still was left in the road
Ribbon in the sky, Michael Brown, another soul
Stole by the system, black men we pay the toll.
The price is your life, Uncle Sam wanted a slice
Black dress code now we looting in the night.
Now we throwing Molotovs in this Holocaust
And I know they hate to hear me screaming, “I'm a Boss!”

Hook:
Time to take a stand and save our future
(Like we all got a shot, we all got a shot!)
Thrown up our hands don't let them shoot us
(Cause we all we got, we all we got)
God ain't put us on the Earth to get murdered,
It’s murder!
God ain't put us on the Earth to get murdered,
It’s murder!
Don't point your weapons at me!

Tired of the okie-dokie, lying you Pinocchio
Driving while black, tell me, where am I supposed to go?
Gun shots hit the car, now I got the Holy Ghost
If excessive force was a drug, then they overdosed.
Got us trying protest, it's a slow process
Heard it's a lot of rotten eggs in the crow's nest
People praying on they feet; police holding on their feat
Turned on the news and seen a tank rolling down the street.

Yeah, I seen a lot of ice water tossed,
And I know it's for a cause
My only question is, “what we doing for the loss?”
I’m Mike Brown, cause right now,
I challenge you to use your talents to
Speak up, and don't you ever let them silence you
Cause action speaks louder than words, that's what I heard
Shot down with his hands up, that's what occurred
Man, that sound absurd
Matter fact to me that sound like murder
We want justice!

Ay yo Game, I had a crib out there,
I used to live out there!
So I know how niggas feel out there!
People stressing, protesting, unity is a blessing,
So it's time we come together, use our voice as a weapon!
I am Michael Brown, cause I stand for what he stand for
News say we're looting, paint pictures like we some animals
(Oh my) NWA CMG holler, “rest in peace, Eazy, and fuck the police!"

Heard another brother slain up in St. Louis
Sure the mother feel the pain, but what you famous doing?
I’m sure the general population trying to be more active,
But when the light finally catches you, you ice challenge!
OK and I support the ALS just like the rest of them,
But you have yet to pay your debt, so you just flexing then!
Cause everybody care for a minute, then stop!
People only there for a minute, then stop!
And what's the point of giving if you ain't giving your all?
We never getting ahead, might as well give up your heart

Where does it end?
I got my hands up,
What else am I supposed to do?
Where does it end?
Tell me, where's the love for everything we're going through?
Mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy me
Hope that God can save us!
Mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy me!

Martin Luther King had a dream!
But they ain't respecting... up out here
And they don't really respect Obama out here
Lights out, go dark it's like a nightmare
How the fuck you play the tempest game?
But they ain't playing fair!
It's going down, Armageddon right here
Right now, not on TV, but right here
Put your flags in the air if you don't really care (wave it!)
We need justice, yeah,
We need justice here!

I heard he surrendered but we all saw how they did him
Television broadcasts, a confused country
I'm a resident of a nation that don't want me.
What's done is done, the town erupts in fury,
And I'm already hearing about this lopsided jury.
Three faces like his, the rest another story,
A lot of motherfuckers need to act more worried.

The revolution has been televised
If I sit here and do don't do nothing,
Homie, that's genocide!
Fuck that, we have arrived!
And who cares who ain't on our side, cause we on our own
How do you preach peace to a family that just lost they own?
My broody Game just banged my line like "we gotta do something, yeah"
All that marching and that peace ain't gonna fucking do nothing
Fuck it, my moms, sorry, I'm ready to rage!
The police done let the animals out of the cage,
Oh, Lord, it’s

Hook:
Time to take a stand and save our future
Like we all got a shot, we all got a shot!
Thrown up our hands don't let them shoot us
Cause we all we got, we all we got
God ain't put us on the Earth to get murdered,
It’s murder!
God ain't put us on the Earth to get murdered,
It’s murder!
Don't point your weapons at me!
Stand up!
