lyrics

I just can’t face what awaits me on my fresh terror machine

My heart just breaks and keeps breaking with the stories I see

No one is free if one man can’t breathe
No one is free if we just watch and see
I was naive enough to believe
We’ve grown out of such ignorance

Cuz I just can’t see how you feel the life giving out beneath your knees
And think

this is freedom
This is justice
This is the world I want to raise my kids in

I just can’t face what awaits me when I fall asleep at night
pictures of the lives that been taken keep replaying in my mind

I want to believe that evil’s a myth
But he was on his neck for 8 minutes and 46
Don’t be naive my son, evil lives when you let that shit slide

Cuz I just can’t see how you feel the life giving out beneath your knees
And think

This is freedom
This is justice
This is the kind of world I’ll raise my kids in

I have to face what awaits me if this terror’s gonna end
