Lyrics

No you can’t tell anything by the way he walks,
When he’s seen too much, no time to talk.
Yes he’s proud, respectable but
He’s been messed around since he was boy.

It’s not alright, it's not okay,
You may not look the other way.
Can you try to understand
The racist hell upon the land

Whether you're a mother or whether you're a brother
Tryna stay alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
Tryna stay alive, stayin' alive
Black Lives Matter, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Black Lives Matter, stayin' alive

When you raise a man from a little boy
and they gun him down for a plastic toy
He’s got the wings of heaven on his shoes,
But your baby child you just can't lose.

It’s not alright, it's not okay,
He will not live another day.
Can we try to understand
the racist hell upon the land

Whether you're a mother or whether you're a brother
Tryna stay alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
Tryna stay alive, stayin' alive
Black Lives Matter, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Black Lives Matter, stayin' alive

Hates goin' nowhere. We gotta rise up.
Somebody help me, yeah.
Hates goin' nowhere. We gotta rise up.
We’re stayin' alive

I do it for the look on they face
I do it for the love of the chase
For the youngin’ with the 9 on his waist
Do it for a blind man so he can picture a face
Do it for my homie’s case, wrong time in place
Do it for my dream, see I would die like Martin
Do it for the Peyton that would dream of startin’
Do it, see we run from the cops so often
But we stay on our grind, though them boys is watchin’
We do it 9 to 5 trying to hustle and strive
Some do it for the system that just keeps us deprived
So do it every day while we hustle and strive
No matter what we do we just stayin’ alive!

All her life she lived by the golden rule
She volunteered, did well in school
But she would not put down that cigarette so
she lost her life, home was that a threat?

It’s not alright, it's not okay,
She will not live another day.
Can you try to understand
the racist hell upon the land

Whether you're a mother or whether you're a brother
Tryna stay alive, stayin' alive
Feel the city breakin' and everybody shakin'
Tryna stay alive, stayin' alive
Black Lives Matter, stayin' alive, stayin' alive
Black Lives Matter, stayin' alive

Hates goin' nowhere. We gotta rise up.
Somebody help me, yeah.
Hates goin' nowhere. We gotta rise up.
We’re Staying alive

Hates goin' nowhere. We gotta rise up.
Somebody help me, yeah.
Hates goin' nowhere. We gotta rise up.
Somebody help me, yeah.
