Steven Malcolm - I Am lyrics

[Intro]
Yeah
Yeah
One nation under God

[Verse 1]
I see the injustice
I see the destruction
The repercussions of a broken system
In need of a reconstruction
Yeah, in a nation facing cases where race is divided
Fearing what they do not understand
Leavin' them ol people dying
Leavin' them ol people crying
Communities raising up riots
News never capturing the quiet
Only the rage and the violence
I will not sit and be silenced
I will not hide or run
Even if that means another victim to that officer's gun

[Hook 1]
I am Mike Brown
I am Eric Garner
I am Trayvon
I am Freddie Gray
I am who the system gon' prey on
I am Walter Scott
I am Sandra Bland
Here in the land of the free
I am a black man
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/steven-malcolm/-/i-am.html]

[Verse 2]
Yeah, does black lives matter?
Are we all a target?
Over a thousand black lives taken
Look at the margin
Look at the numbers and tell me we are not victims of racial injustice
Look at the footage and tell me that murder's not done by police that we trust in
I woke up today and witnessed a man put five in the chest of my brother
Back to the ground, no way to defend
And then put an end to my brother
[?] my brethren
Or will be I next?
This the reality of our society with their hands on my neck

[Hook 2]
I am Mike Brown
I am Eric Garner
I am Trayvon
I am Ezell Ford
I am Tamir Rice
I am Alton Sterling
I am Walter Scott
I am Sandra Bland
Here in the land of the free
I am a black man

[Outro]
There are major developments tonight in the case of a neighborhood watch captain who shot and k**ed an unarmed 17 year old
There is growing outrage tonight after an unarmed African American teenager was shot and k**ed by police in a St. Louis suburb in Ferguson, Missouri
Twelve year old Tamir Rice playing with a gun outside a rec center and he was shot to d**h by a rookie police officer who says that he thought it was real
