Excuse Me Lyrics

3. Excuse Me (4:04)
Track rating :  100 / 100      Votes :  1     
[Verse 1]
Look what I've found, come get down
It's that revolution sound
Call it second emancipation, break these chains and let me out
It's not violence I'm on about, but riot boots still hit the ground
Lower the gun put down the whip
Take a step back hear me out
I am fanatic, employ guerrilla tactics
Open up this lyrical automatic and put holes in your rhetoric
It's archaic, kind of chaotic, almost barbaric
But yet you stand and you swear by it
And I've been readily, steadily waiting for a chance to resist
The devil is a liar, topple the empire
Blood sweat tears and desire
I put my heart into this
Never forget I'm a soldier
I will not be conquered

[Chorus]
I can't walk this road forever, and I can't forget the past
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me
It's destroying me within, my need for emancipation
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me
[Post-Chorus]
Life, liberty, pursuit of happiness, equality and justice for all
Now you know you lying

[Verse 2]
You on that shotgun philosophy, celebrate the tragedy
Build an effigy high to the heavens to remind me and blind me
Turn the whole world into my enemy
Control my destiny and drain all my energy
It's insane to me
Got the whole nation sedated and medicated
A testimony to the violence
Yet you still give me that ghetto education
Basically priming me to feed me to the prison industry
I see all of the cowards, the greed, the need to hold control over me
Break these chains, end the power
I'd rather you give back what you stole from me

[Chorus]
I can't walk this road forever, and I can't forget the past
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me
It's destroying me within, my need for emancipation
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me

[Bridge]
Excuse me Mr. Officer, come out of my sector
No need to stress, no need for vex

[Verse 3]
Yo, excuse me your honor, fuck the drama
No apologies, I save that for my mama
Take my name off of the docket
Drop all these charges
All it took was a spark, all it took was a catalyst
Martin said it best, I live a life with no violence
So I speak up, no longer silent
I begin to see
My third eye is opening
My resolve is strengthening
I yearn to be free

[Chorus]
I can't walk this road forever, and I can't forget the past
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me
It's destroying me within, my need for emancipation
My soul is under pressure, and it's killing me

[Bridge]
Excuse me Mr. Officer no need for war
Trying to drain my energy, but you can't keep me down

[Outro]
I can't walk this road forever, and I can't forget the past
My soul is under pressure, but it won't kill me
