What's Goin' On?/Softly lyrics

[Part I: What's Goin' On] [Intro: Marvin Gaye]
There's far too many of you dying
You know we've got to find a way
To bring some loving here today[Verse 1: gamemast15r]
Chalk outlines, bodies fresh out on the streets
Corrupt cops, please don't shoot, I can't breathe
But not every officer wants to go on the prowl
And shoot every black man, woman or child

This killing is foul, the victors get all the spoils
I guess that's why we went into the middle east for the oil
It's another Vietnam for our soldiers, please don't send em' back
Another useless conflict, it isn't anything less than that

Yes I'm white, no I'm not a republican or a democrat
Either extreme is bad, like how Israel views Arafat
And the same likewise, conflict is at a high rise
We die by guns and bullets, 3D into our white eyes
And the matter of fact is, the left is killed off by disease
Why are we crippling our infrastructures at our knees
Sadly, we can't change the human race, so as far as I can see
There's no stopping all the killings, there's not a way that we can leave
[Interlude: Martin Luther King Speech]
But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition[Verse 2: Almighty U-Sorcerer]
Sixteen shots, like Mos Def, running 16 Blocks
Police say I'm a monkey, leave me hanging at the treetop
Got me heated like a teapot, black man in a car, not speed racing
But you pull him over, man, the fuck is in police training?
I have a dream that I'll see a black man on a spaceship
Instead of one rotting on a slave ship
And if you ask me, the half breed
The bus, I don't take back seats, steady representing black sheep
And I left the game with broken hearts
But I never let the driver back me up like Rosa Parks
I'm toting iron like Tony Stark
They tryna burn me down like Joan of Arc, I got the smoke alarms
But I still tote the same smoke, I got a coat of arms

They think I'm breaking into these Mazda's and Toyota cars
I just eat granola bars, sick of the discrimination
And nobody doin' investigation, this is their entertainment[Outro]
Please don't shoot, I can't breathe
Please don't shoot, I can't breathe
Please don't shoot, I can't breathe
Please don't shoot, I can't breathe
[Part II: Softly][Intro: Lauryn Hill]
Strumming my pain with his fingers
Singing my life with his words
Killing me softly with his song
Killing me softly with his song
Telling my whole life with his words
Killing me softly with his song[Verse: Almighty U-Sorcerer]
Police give me tickets like amusement parks
I did 51 in a 50, that's the confusing part
The good Lord waiting for me like an Uber car
Robertson got 33, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
I'm so glad they locked the nigga who killed Walter Scott
People's homes is getting robbed and they can't call the cops
I'm pro-life, but I ain't talking 'bout abortion decision
I'm talking 'bout the lives taken by law enforcement divisions
You just took away a father, he supporting his children
Y'all wanna know the Sorcerer's vision?
I pray one day that every person on Earth can live their life safely
Pour out the whole bottle for the men who died lately
I pray one day that a black man in a car can drive home
We said "Black Lives Matter", you saying our lives don't
"Well, all lives matter, what makes you think that you matter more?"
We ain't say that, we shedding lights on the men dead on channel four[Outro: Malcolm X Speech]
We declare our right on this earth to be a man, to be a human being, to be respected as a human being, to be given the rights of a human being in this society, on this earth, in this day, which we intend to bring into existence
