Rick Ross - Don't Shoot lyrics

[Produced by Isabella Summers and Luney Tunez] [Intro: DJ Khaled] 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: TGT] Time to take a stand and save our future Like we all got shot, we all got shot Throwing 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 [Verse 1: Game] Seen the pictures, feel the pain, scandalous how they murder son Tired of them k**ing us, I'm on my way to Ferguson Talked to TIP, I talked to Diddy, them my brothers walking with me Mothers crying "Stop the riots", we ain't got to chalk the city I seen Cole out there, felt I should go out there They left that boy for hours in the cold out there They k**in' teens, they k**in' dreams (It's murder) [Verse 2: Diddy] Yo, come on we gotta stick together, we all we got Police taking shots and I ain't talkin' bout Ciroc I'm talking bout Emmett Till, I'm talking bout Ezell Ford I'm talking bout 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 gla** house and my revenge is mental Rather use my brain than throw a co*ktail through a window [Verse 3: Rick Ross] 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 want 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: TGT] Time to take a stand and save our future Like we all got shot, we all got shot Throwing 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 [Verse 4: 2 Chainz] 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 tryna protest, it's a slow process Heard it's a lotta rotten eggs in the crow's nest People praying on they feet, police holding on they heat Turned on the news and seen a tank rolling down the street [Verse 5: Fabolous] 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 Of Mike Brown? Cause right now, I challenge you to use your talents to Speak up, and don't you ever let em 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 [Verse 6: Yo Gotti] Ay yo Game, I had a crib out there I used to live out there So I know how n***as 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 On my NWA CMG Holl'in' "Rest in peace Eazy and f** the police" [Verse 7: Wale] 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're ice challenged Okay, 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 [Bridge: TGT; Swizz Beatz in brackets] Where does it end? I got my hands up, what else am I supposed to do? (Rest in peace to Mike Brown) Where does it end? (And all the other fallen soldiers) Tell me, where's the love for everything we're going through? (That will not be on the news or televised, ah) Mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy me Hope that God can save us Mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy me (As we lead in peace) [Verse 8: Swizz Beatz] Martin Luther King had a dream But they ain't respecting Jesse up out here And they don't really respect Obama out here Lights out, go dark - it's like a nightmare How the f** you play the 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 [Verse 9: Curren$y] 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 bout this lopsided jury Three faces like his, the rest another story A lot of motherf**ers need to act more worried [Verse 10: Problem] The revolution has been televised If I sit here and do don't do nothing, homie, that's genocide f** 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 brodie Game just banged my line like "We gotta do something" All that marching and that peace ain't gonna f**ing do nothing f** it, my moms, sorry I'm ready to rage The police done let the animals out of the cage Oh lord it's [Hook: Game's daughter] Time to take a stand and save our future Like we all got shot, we all got shot Throwing 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 [Outro: Diddy] Stand up
