Black Milk – Don’t Say Lyrics

Don’t Say by Black Milk


Yeah, yeah
Never turn your back and think everything is just okay
Hear ’em talk but still pay attention to what they don’t say
That’s more important, I hear you though
Uh, yeah, I hear you though
Yeah, I hear you, yeah

Keep my ears open wide, keep my eyes wider, yeah
You never really know what they see inside ya, nah
Who’s really out for your best interests and who’s pretending when
They reach out to show you love that’s never genuine, but
Your intuition tell you who’s for your cause and who’s for your failure
Could be the ones who’s looking real familiar
Backs against the wall causes us all to act defiant
I witness how your country go silent when blacks is dying
I witness how it give and in return, ain’t getting nothing
Since days of a youngin’, cops ain’t gave me one reason to trust ’em
It’s not what they say, it’s what they don’t
It’s not what they doin’, it’s what they won’t
Yeah, live mobs tryna rile us up
I’m more offended by the ones who stand silent, not speaking loud enough

Yeah, yeah
Never turn your back and think everything is just okay, uh
Hear ’em talk but still pay attention to what they don’t say
That’s more important, I hear you though
Uh, yeah, I hear you though
Yeah, I hear you, yeah

Yeah, gotta ask why they never act for us
It’s more of turning a blind eye and quiet as gag orders
Ignoring the fact, or footage caught on camcorders
Ignoring what happened, perhaps they feeling mad for us, nah
Feeling bad for us, you watching the same wars
You see what I’m seeing fully, still say it never happened
Guess my eyes lying to me, surely feeling exhausted
Uh, with all this talking and all this dearly departed
With brothers that’s getting caught up, ayy, uh
But the silence from so many says a lot
Gotta question it, always part of the plot
Gotta question it, who is calling the shots
Either with us or you not
Gotta watch out for the ones you couldn’t trust
When it’s time to talk the talk, you better keep it on the hush

Yeah, yeah
Never turn your back and think everything is just okay, uh
Hear ’em talk but still pay attention to what they don’t say
That’s more important, I hear you though
Uh, yeah, I hear you though
Yeah, I hear you, yeah
