Steel Pulse - Hands Up I Can't Breathe (Lyrics Snippet)

(Intro)
Should I run away, should I run away
Should I run away, should I run away
Should I run away... oh yeah

(Verse 1)
I says don't get disillusioned
Ah by this racist institution
The bigots are out there with their weapons too
Yes they're aiming to gun down our children
So let me tell you this time around
Oh yes this time around
Yes we're gonna draw yes this line right now
We draw this line right now
Our common goal is to stand our grounds
You got the city on lock-down, lock-down

(Chorus)
Don't shoot, I've got my hands up
Don't shoot, I put my hands up
Should I, keep my mouth shut
What do you want from me
Don't shoot, I've got my hands up
Don't shoot, I put my hands up
No doubt you've got the handcuffs
I'm choking I can't breathe

(Verse 2)
Do I lay dead as a victim
Another statistic to the system
All kinds of crazy sh!t run through my mind
Do I live to raise my children
So I'm gonna tell you this time around
Yes this time
What goes around yes wil come around
Goes and comes around
Is it defiance that has me bound
You've got this whole town on lock-down, lock-down
