YOU KILLED ONE, WE KILLED EIGHT

YOU KILLED ONE, WE KILLED EIGHT

You killed one, we killed eight
How are supposed to last at that rate?
The system is reeling
From all this violence we feeling
Injustice is dealing
Black Lives Matter
Then why all this black folk splatter
I heard that blue took down a brother today
Well, I heard Sweet Lou took down an entire crew
Damn, Lou why didn’t you just stew
Maybe just maybe drink a damn brew
Now those black lives are definitely through
You killed one, we killed eight
Why are we so consumed with hate
Chirac, B’more or should I say Kill’more
When is killing going to be no more
Settling them with bodies doesn’t even no score
Well, the knockers did do some knocking
Yes there actions are indeed shocking
People in the streets obviously mocking
Watch out over there that brother is cap locking
Hanging on urban corners is simply for bullet blocking
US killing US is even more shocking
Why do all these brothers have these beefs
Could they be settled using sheafs
Why do our communities have so much grief
You killed one, we killed eight
What in the hell is the black man’s fate
We cannot survive carrying all this dead weight
How about some self-love served on tonight’s dinner plate
It’s hard to say I love you
Then put those bullets through you
You killed none we decided against that gun
Wouldn’t it be simply great no had to run
If we simply didn’t take the hater’s bait
Then maybe we all went on dates
Everyone learned to skate
And stopped shooting so damn straight.
You helped one, we helped many
Yesterday thank God neither of us killed an
You see Black Lives Matter should comprise of MANY
