Busta Rhymes – Freedom? Lyrics

Freedom? Lyrics – Busta Rhymes

Woah, oh
Oh, yeah yeah
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah

Eye for an eye, knee for a knee
You declared war ’cause you don’t want peace
You just want sheep, and we are not asleep
Blood on your hands, blood on our streets
Oh, our tears in the night
Another stolen life
‘Cause color is all you see
Tell me, is that free? Yeah

We are not created equal, no
Could give a fuck if I offend a couple people, yo (Tell me, is that free?)
What the fuck are you watchin’ us never in the sequel for?
Let me wipe these tears and speak the truth to all my people, oh
Fuck is we doin’? Where we goin’ wrong?
That a twelve year old gotta sing this type of shit up in his songs
Gotta pick up his pops and his moms
The youngin’ braver than a lot of these niggas that’s armed
Watch all my people that they tryna trample
It’s time to form and get to lead ’em by every example
In the bathroom, you wash your faces with us
You ain’t ready for tradin’ places with us
My heart hurt bad
And I talk my shit like this with my kids, they be lookin’ for dad
Energy transfer, kids look at me mad
Gotta still be the source of hope, though it’s hurtin’ me bad

Eye for an eye, knee for a knee
You declared war ’cause you don’t want peace
You just want sheep, and we are not asleep
Blood on your hands, blood on our streets
Oh, our tears in the night
Another stolen life
‘Cause color is all you see
Tell me, is that free? Yeah

Look all the shit my people been through
Think I don’t want my kids to live too?
Can’t imagine them parents copin’
In they arms with a breathless body they holdin’
God bless the tear of every mama cryin’
Children leave the house wonderin’ if today they dyin’
The nerve to say there’s bigger fish worth fryin’
If you ain’t with us, better know we riotin’
And while you’re frontin’, you just walk about
If we ain’t fightin’ for what’s right, then what we talkin’ ’bout?
And while I fight with all my might, now let me sort shit out
Inspire folks, become the activist they talk about
Allah blessin’ every soul that’s fallen
Snoop Dogg and others told me to accept my callin’
Prayin’ to Jesus hangin’ on your wall and
Black man hopin’ he make it home tomorrow mornin’

Eye for an eye, knee for a knee
You declared war ’cause you don’t want peace
You just want sheep, and we are not asleep
Blood on your hands, blood on our streets
Oh, our tears in the night
Another stolen life
‘Cause color is all you see
Tell me, is that free? Yeah

I wanna know
Do you really believe?
Do you really believe that we’re free?
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I wanna know
