Chris Webby – Wild in the Streets Lyrics

Wild in the Streets By Chris Webby

Every human has a voice
Every human has a choice
We all was meant to share this planet
But it all starts with understanding
I wish it could all be so easy
Wake me up from the nightmare on the TV
All the pain, the anxiety and hurt
For the world to change, we have to change first

Every day, feel like I’m supressin’ my feelings
Like I’ve been sentenced to pay a penance to people who for some reason hate my existence
They put us in ghettos and we embraced it
Makin’ the most out of a fucked up situation
And you got the nerve to be racist? It’s funny
Controlling my education, religion, and money
All we got is pride left and you focused on taking that from me
The picture gets clearer when you feelin’ like you at your safest
It’s still racist when you ain’t in our faces and call us a nigga
It’s in the look, it’s in the tone
It’s when you say “All lives matter” as a way to justify police doing wrong
I know you hate it, but until black lives matter?
Shit, “All lives matter” is a false statement
All I want between you and I is to peacefully unify
Look at the truth from my point of view
And then you decide: who are you inside?
You mean you like seeing humans shootin’ and lootin’ awry for dudes who got brutalized?
We all done caught a bad one
Lookin’ around at all this chaos, callin’ Kaepernick
Takin’ that knee don’t seem that bad, huh?
And now there’s screaming in the streets
No, don’t give me no brick to throw ’cause what we out here screaming for is peace
I wasn’t even a teen when I see what happened to Rodney King
My niece, Navaya, just turned eleven and now she seeing the same thing
We just tryin’ to break the cycle by addressing what we seeing
And me and Webby just an example that we all on the same team

Oh, I heard a shot and laid down
It’s gettin’ wild in the streets
They settin’ fire to the cars
His momma yellin’ “Oh, no, no
Why they shot my son? No!”
It’s gettin’ wild in the streets
When the sun goes down

Yeah
War on the streets and nowhere to run to
They arming police, military come too
All we wanted was peace, but what we gon’ do
Watchin’ all these conspiracies come true?
And we got good cop, bad cop
White cop, black cop
Why call the cops when, this cop, that cop
Out here shootin’ like it’s Call of Duty: Black Ops
Another dead man laying on the blacktop
Rioters sent by the left to stir
This whole pot ’cause the plot’s divide and conquer
The right responds with violence beyond redemption
Tension, no one rights the wrongs
And the end result is the corruption bubbling to the top
Ain’t a cop that can stop the rumbling
Bringing in SWAT won’t stop what’s coming
We’re past discussion, won’t stop for nothing
Unity’s louder than troops and gunpowder
The shroud institution has proved they’re cowards
They losin’ their power, the future is ours
Change gon’ come, revolution has flowered
And grown through the cracks of the concrete street
Through the false info that been on TV
This America so the pain run deep
But we can never not be free
Fuck a racist motherfucker, you can go and tell ’em how I feel
So go and play your anthem, I’ma go ahead and kneel
On the ground that the colonists [?] steal
Get it? ‘Cause they stole it, shit, I’m just being real
We’re a country built off crime and white lies
And I can see it through my white eyes
If you don’t see the problem, you the problem
And they all exposed
When our true colors get shown, woah

Oh, I heard a shot and laid down
It’s gettin’ wild in the streets
They settin’ fire to the cars
His momma yellin’ “Oh, no, no
Why they shot my son? No!”
It’s gettin’ wild in the streets
When the sun goes down
