They Don't Lyrics by NASTY C

They don’t want me to win
They don’t want me to eat
They don’t wanna see a young black man succeed
They don’t wanna see me take my brother’s outta the streets
They don’t want me
They don’t want me to sleep
They don’t want me to dream
They don’t wanna see my people living good and at ease
They wanna lock em all up and then get rid of the keys
We ain’t never free

I’m grateful for life and the prize I reap
Every day and every night, I get on my knees
And I, pray for my guys and their families
Hope the Lord hear me
I can only imagine the pain and the grief
From the innocent mothers with all the shit they had to see
When you lose the ones you love to the fuckin’ police
It cuts deep
When heaven calls and the angels do their job
We start to question God like we could play his part
It gets so fuckin’ hard, we can’t escape the dark
This hatred in my heart for the ones who left this scar
But everything will be alright soon
I just wanna let you know ain’t nothing like you
We live and die, that’s always been the cycle
I promise it wasn’t about you
When you make it to heaven, give me your eyes dude
Watch over me closely till it’s my time too
The only thing I can do is turn to the Bible
And do my best to help your family because they are mine too

They don’t want me to win
They don’t want me to eat
They don’t wanna see a young black man succeed
They don’t wanna see me take my brother’s outta the streets
They don’t want me
They don’t want me to sleep
They don’t want me to dream
They don’t wanna see my people living good and at ease
They wanna lock em all up and then get rid of the keys
We ain’t never free

How could you blame as many sisters and brothers die
If their answer to it go and start another fire
Guess they gotta do it, has to show objection to it
God bless’em no direction out there getting to it
2020 guess it’s the year of the burn
Consequences you earned to build this nation
That you hate me and the karma’s returned
Well that’s a stupid question, when will you learn?
You never will word to George Floyd, Emmettill
And Sean Bell
Guess they’d rather see us all in civil unrest
Than to go and make some fuckin arrests, fuck is that?
Well after that, here’s to getting exactly what you expect
How you supposed to serve and protect with your knee on my neck?
Look it ain’t hard to see you’re not for me
The cycle of atrocity blew your cover
When there’s about to be some reciprocity
I’m with the cause and it’s gon’ be whatever it’s got to be (haha)
But vandalize a building that’s just not for me
But even still if I’mma be real with you no fuckin joke
Best thing I seen is that police station going up in smoke (hum)
Felt like vindication for so many folk, for real
Breona Taylor, Sandra Bland and so many more

They don’t want me to win
They don’t want me to eat
They don’t wanna see a young black man succeed
They don’t wanna see me take my brother’s outta the streets
They don’t want me
They don’t want me to sleep
They don’t want me to dream
They don’t wanna see my people living good and at ease
They wanna lock em all up and then get rid of the keys
We ain’t never free

Ey hold my hand, momma I’m with you
They think, they took your son
But they put him right next to you
You’re the strongest thing on this earth, you’re unbreakable
Plus you brought him in to this earth and you raise him too
Take a second off every day and get comfortable
Celebrate yourself for a change cause you never do
With all the pressure from society, you’re always hiding
Go outside and show the world a better you
I know your worried sick about if I’mma make it home this evening
You know cause of my colour life ain’t gon’ be easy
But I’mma be okay if I tell God I need him
That’s what you taught me without even knowing you’re teaching
See what I’m try na say is
You’re the furthest from weak and I sing your praises
Because you’re A G
You made me and made the world a better place for your seeds
How the fuck could anybody take em away from their queen
