lyrics

Faux photo with an auto chrome
Promo for the folks at home
Who like to take some comfort from
Killing young and colored ones
But all he ever stole were smokes
All they every told were jokes
Have you heard that colored one
What the fucks a colored one
Tell me what’s your color son
Are you not a mothers son
Pop goes another one
Pop goes another one

How are you afraid
You got grenades
You the one in that camouflage
All we got are these cameras on

Give me air
When I walk through the street I'm...
Give me air
When I run to the train I'm...
Give me air
When I drive in my lane I'm...
Give me air

Hands up
Don’t shoot
Dead man
Pursuit

Give me air

Caught him with some priors though
All of them were minor though
They fought him till he tired no
Choked him till he died yo
But all he ever sold were smokes
All they ever told were jokes
All of them were lethal though
Throwing in illegal blows
Now a mother single
All because he hustled singles yo
Tell it to a mothers son
Pop was another one

One
One
One


How are you afraid
You an armed brigade
Got no use for that training though
Got the youth tryna aim their phones

Give me air
When I walk through the street I'm...
Give me air
Give me air
When I drive in my lane I'm...
Give me air

Hands up
Don’t shoot
Dead man
Pursuit

Give me air

I ain’t a man no more
I ain’t white or poor or demanding war
I mean damn that aint what I’m standing for
I ain’t a guy with a mic or a band I’m more
I’m a statement a dead man’s answer for
His right to the air they won’t answer for
They stole it and they plan for more
Hold it over our heads
What you think we got our hands up for

Give me air
When I walk through the street I'm...
Give me air
When I run through the train I'm...
Give me air
When I drive in my lane I'm...
Give me air

Hands up
Don’t shoot
Dead man
Pursuit
Hands up
Don’t shoot
Dead man
Pursuit
Hands up
Don’t shoot
Don’t shoot
Don’t shoot

Give me air
