But what is that? I-I just gotta ask you though Because at that moment (yeah...) where you have that brick Or where you have th-that that two-by-four And you're bus- about to bust the skull Of a fellow human being open with it And you're about to crush him or kill him or stomp him or kick him When he's on the ground bleeding already SOMETHING'S gotta be real WRONG...

[Chorus: Lisa Ivey (David Banner)]
If you look at all the hurt, look at all the pain People are DYYYYING and it's SUCH a shaaaame... They know something's wrong (But won't nobody say it) They know something's wrong (But won't nobody say it) They know something's wrong (But won't nobody say it) (I'll put it in a record, but will anybody play it?)

[David Banner:]
In Chi-Town, D. Albert's laying on the ground His life bleeds away while other folks stand around We gangstas, but we cain't stop the pain in our town I watched it on the net and that moment was profound The OG'z gotta put the BG'z in check I'm tryna do sum'hin but I need y'all help We started g_______in to protect ourself Now it's power and respect to kill everything for wealth (wealth) .. and it's the same thing in rap You tell the kids to stay hood and you ain't even in the trap He ain't never sell dope, he ain't never did time And if you did, why would you want them to walk the same lines? (YEA-AH!) It's like we travel back in time Took the whip with the crack, now it's black-on-black crime Yeah, we put our cities on the map But they call it the trap because most hoods are just that - a trap! YEH!

[Chorus]
[David Banner:]
Mr. President, you know that some people still racist? Jimmy Carter said it, you didn't have to underplay it Huh, but I guess you got a plan Police is still killin our young black man Ah, I meant young black men It's less of us in college and more us in the pen (in the pen) Huh, I guess it's the devil's den You ain't trippin, you aight, it's more of our friends That's dyin in these streets, so I'm a die over this beat If I die off in these streets, I'm a let the blood leak Whisper, "God forgive me" - Then bury me in the creeks of Mississippi And I'm a take the whole world with me like..

[Chorus]
[David Banner:]
Women playin men but why do men play women? I saw one in UGG boots and real tight denims Man, he had Apple Bottoms on So I walked over to him and I asked, "What's wrong? What's wrong?" He said, "What's wrong with you?! Ain't nothin wrong with me, this is the life that I choose This is what I do" So I said, "What's the use? But if it's man on man, how the hell we reproduce?" Ah, test tube baby He said, "Uh, David Banner, I remember when he raped me Take me to the bed, binded both legs I blanked out and woke up in a pool of red Ah, that changed my whole world Like that's my stepdad, thought, that I shoulda been a girl" Man, this is more than a song Our kids are dyin fast, there I said it, somethin's wrong YEH!

[Rick Sanchez:]I agree with you. I think there are people out there Who could possibly, very well be unsalvageable And maybe we as a society started- need to start treating them As if they are, just that - unsalvageable. [echoes]

[David Banner:]
That's a lie, we gon' save our kids!
