Tough times, I hope y'all holdin' up

We'll be aight 'cause we always is

But I'm feelin' like this

How many mothers have to cry?

How many brothers gotta die?

How many more times?

How many more times?

How many more marches?

How many more signs?

How many more lives?

How many more times?

Take a look around, can you see it now?

Don't be colorblind, 'cause when they're killing mine

They'll try to justify it

Oh, each and every time

Playin' in a park, takin' your jog

Sittin' on the couch, in your own house

Never seem to matter what we do

You think we don't matter, but we do

You got a problem, 'cause the city on fire

But you quiet when niggas die

Let the soul up out that body that we buried

You with God now you no longer have to worry

It's so hard to sing these words out loud

All these beautiful, precious black lives

Lost in the name of senseless white pride

Tears fallin' from my eyes

How many mothers have to cry?

How many brothers gotta die?

How many more times?

How many more times?

How many more marches?

How many more signs?

How many more lives?

How many more times?

Tell me how can you be quiet?

You know the language of the unheard, is a riot

All we ever see from you is violence (True)

You know you ain't no better if you silent

You talking 'bout the city on fire (Oh, oh)

Where your rage when my people die?

We ain't slaves, let my people fly (Oh, yeah)

Now it's time, watch my people rise

How many mothers have to cry? (Ooh, how?)

How many brothers gotta die? (Ooh, how?)

How many more times? (Ooh, how?)

How many more times? (How many times?)

How many more marches? (Ooh, how?)

How many more signs? (Ooh, how?)

How many more lives? (Ooh, how?)

How many more times? (How many times?)

How many mothers have to cry? (Ooh, how?)

How many brothers gotta die? (Ooh, how?)

How many more times? (Ooh, how?)

How many more times? (How many times?)

How many more marches? (All across the world, ooh, how?)

How many more signs? (Ooh, how?)

How many more lives? (Shame I gotta ask, ooh, how?)

How many more times? (How many times?)

I'll leave you with that (Yes, yeah)
