Lyrics

Hook:

I was walking up the street
I was thinking bout my dreams that might come true
With you

Verse 1:

Sunday night, February 26th
South Florida A.K.A Rack City bitch
there was a young man by the name of Treyvon,
walking past his favorite court he always played on
Age 17, just north of the keys
if Obama was my pops he would've looked like me
he was...on his way to buy some skittles and an iced tea
until he saw someone behind him looking sheisty
shot down, claiming it was self defense
weeks later and they still can't find the evidence
they said he looked suspicious cuz he had a hoodie on
cut short of all the places that he could've gone
I wonder what it takes to kill a man in cold blood
and watch him speak his last words like "Rosebud"
my brother called me like, "Yo I think I found a beat"
wrote this song in my head, walking down the street

Hook:

I was walking up the street
I was thinking bout my dreams that might come true
With you

Verse 2:

Sunday night, February 26th
a grown man by the name of George Zimmerman
was rollin down the block when he saw this kid walkin'
he was stalkin', something that he did often
He called the cops and they told him not to proceed,
but then he did, because the kid "looked like he sold weed"
He was protected by a law called "Stand Ground"
heads up I think we've got another man down
Trey was shot to death
but you will NOT be forgiven
We will NOT forget
Ya see it doesn't really matter which block you rep
you never know what could happen
better watch you step
sometimes I stop and think
what if that had been me?
and if it was then would you be there to avenge me?
I had this dream last night while I was sound asleep
wrote this song in my head, walking down the street

Hook:

I was walking up the street
I was thinking bout my dreams that might come true
With you


There's a war going on outside, no man is safe from

I was running home to you
I was hoping that you knew
I'd wait for you

God bless my soul, before I put my foot down and begin to stroll
