lyrics

gary selling loosies by the liquor store
didn't really mean no harm
but he was black and stood 6 foot 7
so the owner sound the alarm
he tried to comply with everything they said
cuz he knew he was breaking law
but when heard the sirens he started to run
and bullets was all he saw

and it started to go down
there was nothing but the sound of the officers
letting out some screams
then he opened his eyes gasping for air and the last thing he said on the scene
is I cant breathe
somebody help me please
i see the light
i think im gonna die

bobby went for a walk in the park
to play with his brand new toy
it was a plastic gun that popped like a sparkler
fit for a young little boy
but a neighbor got scared and called for help
with nothing but fear pulsing through
but failed to mention that he was all alone
so theres not much he can do

but the cop went off and sent 20 shots
and didn't even flinch or blink
but jury let him off, and bobby's mother scoffed
and the whole world watched her scream
I cant breathe
somebody help me please
i see the light
i think im gonna die
