Anderson .Paak - Lockdown Lyrics: You shoulda been downtown, the people are rising We thought it was a lock down, they opened up fire Dem bullets was flying They said it was a lockdown, got damn lie Oh my! Time heals all, but you outta time now Judge gotta watch us from the clock tower Little tear gas cleared the whole place out I’ll be back with the hazmat for the next round We was tryna protest and the fires broke out Lookout for the secret agents they be planted in the crowd Said it’s civil unrest But you sleep so sound like you don’t hear the screams when we catchin beat downs Stayin quiet when they killin niggas But you speak loud when we riot got opinions comin from a place of privilege Sicker than the covid how they did him on the ground Speaking of the covid is it still goin around? Oh why don’t you tell me bout the lootin what’s that really all about? Cause they throw away black lives like paper towels Plus unemployment rate what? 40 million now Killed a man in broad day, might never see a trial We just wana break chains like slaves in the south Started in the north end but we ended downtown Riot cops tried to block, now we got a showdown... down You shoulda been downtown, the people are rising We thought it was a lock down, they opened up fire Dem bullets was flying Who said it was a lockdown, got damn lie (Ooh wee) Lockdown we ain’t gotta stop cause they tell us to Downtown where I got popped with the rubber bullet Tre pound, Got it in my name now Imma shoot it Jay Rock: Turn on your tube dog, look how they do us Knee on our necks, bullets in backs Stimulus checks strictly for blacks History repeating, people scared to eat a chicken Everybody going vegan, what they put in it? Look at the world we’re living in They got us shook in it You go on your jog, then your color might get you took in it The man in the mirror can’t look away you gotta look at it Black lives matter so what it means when they shoot at it? Generation genocide, what happened to enterprise Heard the man infiltrated, Black Panthers reenergize Ain’t nothing to figure out They trying to kill us out, if I take a kneel, see my fist I’ma kill it now Just think, bullshit you gotta filter out Are you really ready for the smoke like a swisher house? Ready for the revolution who ready to riot? It won’t be televised, so tell me who ready to die? If downtown going up, where we at with the shits? We at the liquor store nigga, bout to get us a fifth Know they boutta start looting, get the gloves and masks Watch out for them tanks when they rolling past Never understand why they do it someone cut the channel off the news ‘fore I lose it I ain’t even trippin if you wit it, then we lootin Help put this Louis in the back of Suzuki He had to break down so smoothly Ain’t gone say it’s not about race but we movin hoe, pow! Got the tre pound, had to put it in my name now Wish a nigga play now Any given day I’ll be headed to the pulpit Say a little prayer, matter fact I need two of em Ooh won’t he do it, won’t he do it Ooh this ain’t 92 so we into new rules Niggas got hip, so we don’t loot the projects Bout to hit rodeo with my little cousin Marcus Some one threw a whole brick into Neumann Marcus Help me put the whole mannequin in the charger You shoulda been downtown(down), the people are rising(look around) We thought it was a lock down(lockdown), they opened up fire (had to get low) Dem bullets was flying(down, down) Who said it was a lockdown, got damn lie (Ooh wee)Lockdown we ain’t gotta stop cause they tell us to Downtown where I got popped with the rubber bullet Tre pound, Got it in my name now Imma shoot it Lockdown we ain’t gotta stop cause they tell us to Downtown Follow Anderson here: Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/anderson._paak/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/AndersonPaak Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/AndersonPaak/
