J. COLE

J. COLE - Be Free

rate me

(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
