My Hands Are Up - Please Don't Shoot (c) Ken J Hill 2014 ----------------------------------------------------- My hands are up, I have no gun I'm not a threat, I will not run I'll not resist, have nothing to gain To shoot me now would be insane I'm not a threat, don't be so rough Put down your gun, we know you're tough - We hire police to guard our town They are not here, to take us down To protect and serve is what they claim So please don't shoot, this is no game Brutality lives where racists thrive We all must cherish each others lives Souls like ours must not go to waste Time to be heard, no longer chased My hands are up, I will not flee Just lock me up or set me free I'm not a threat, don't be so rough Put down your gun, we know you're tough I'll not resist, have nothing to gain To shoot me now would be insane - Precious children, should never fall From this violence there's no recall Mothers all, need never cry For children lost who shouldn't die We must have justice, and nothing less The system is broke, you must confess Fix it now before it's too late Expel the evil that breeds the hate Arm round my neck, I can not breath Wonder if anyone will even grieve No longer should there be this abuse Might well be hung at the end of a noose We must have justice, and nothing less The system is broke, you must confess Fix it now before it's too late Expel the evil that breeds this hate My hands are up, I have no gun I'm not a threat, I will not run I'll not resist, have nothing to gain To shoot me now would be insane I'm not a threat, don't be so rough Put down your gun, we know you're tough - Boy in a park just having some fun Shouldn't been playing, with a toy gun They rolled in quick, took him down fast Cops didn't wait long enough to ask We must have justice, and nothing less The system is broke, you must confess Fix it now before it's too late Expel the evil that breeds this hate My hands are up, I will not flee Just lock me up or set me free I'm not a threat, don't be so rough Put down your gun, we know you're tough I'll not resist, have nothing to gain To shoot me now would be insane - END
