lyrics

Pruven verse

I speak the truth so no one else lives through it
I speak the truth so no one else lives through it
And if you don't live or learn atleast you hear it

There's a dress code at the club but worse
There's no dress code at the club cult love burst
Words progress
Don't be the nail that stands out from the rest
Get beat to death burnt breath from your chest flesh
Schizo speaks
War is peace
Some become strong then weak then cheat
He went to jail for fingerprints upon the piece
No longer in the streets
No one wants to think anymore
Write raw metaphors
The T.V. show rots you to the core (rot)
I compose daily
Mad about that day it boils the blood in my veins
I explain the piece
Police brutality that happend to me straight ugly scene
I was trying to do the laundry
Simple scott free but my girl gave me the wrong (wrong key)
You see the laundry room was in the basement
I'm locked out looking standing there crazy
Banging, neighbors must have called the cops (cops)
They called right there
I'm wearing all black. Watch,
Racial profiling
Handcuffed and pushed down the stairs those cops was wilding
(While) I wasjust trying to mail my Mom a Christmas card
It was bizarre
My civil rights those cops did bombard (fuck'em)
It's no fake I remeber that day point blank
Cop gun to my face he yelled, "Freeze!"
"Get the fuck on the floor"
I thought I was done for
No more my innocent blood will pour
Not really innocent didn't want death as a consequence
A true story
They tried to kill me for doing a robbery on my own house I was doing laundry
They didn't believe me but i live there
My own house
Almost got taken out there (anywhere)
The cops, sorta corrupt
Handcuffed know what
He look like Brian Urlacher
I'ma underground backpacker
A truth stacker
I will stop this damn hatred from acting.. (on)

(Chorus)
I speak the truth so no one else lives through it
I speak the truth so no one else lives through it
& if you don't live or learn
Atleast you hear it
I speak the truth so no one else goes through it
Speak the truth so no one else goes through it
I speak the truth so no one else lives through it
I speak the truth so no one else lives through it
& if you don't live or learn
Atleast you hear it
I speak the truth so no one else goes through it
Speak the truth so no one else goes through it
I speak the truth so no one else lives through it
I speak the truth so no one else lives through it (come on)
& if you don't live or learn
Atleast you hear it
(sample)- "Newly emerge evidence appears to show members of the New York police department explicitly using race as a factor to determine who should be stopped and searched. Critics of the city's stop and fisk policy have long noted nearly 90% of those targeted are African American or Latino. But a audio recording played during the trial for a lawsuit challenging the policy shows an official calling for police to stop, quote- "the right people". Deputy inspector Christopher McCormack is a commanding officer at the 40th precinct in the south Bronx. A precinct that has recorded a high number of stops. He was caught on recording by officer Pedro Serrano who asks him who the right people are, exactly.
Christopher McCormack- "This is about stopping the right people, the right place, the right location
Pedro Serrano- "Ok"
CM- "Again take my neighborhood where we had the most problems"
PS- "Right"
CM- " And most problems we had were robbery, and grand larceny"
PS- "And who are those people robbing?"
CM- "The problem was what? Male blacks.I have no problem telling you this male blacks."
