"FLASHIN'"

F L A S H I N’
[Intro]:
(Police Radio)
Cop: “10-15 10-15, do you copy?”
Cop: “We’ve received reports of a suspicious African-American male in a residential neighborhood.” “I’m gonna need two additional units to check this out”
Cop: “10-4”
(Police Siren Trailing Off)

--Vocals Trailing in--
UNO, DOS, TRES, CUATRO!

[Bridge 1]:
Flashing… Lights!
Shining... Bright!
Flashing… Lights!
Shining... Bright!

I want it… I need it!
I gotta get… mine!
Flashing… Lights!
Shining... Bright!

[Chorus 1]:
I’m flashing, I’m flashing, I’m flashing (OK!)
I’m flashing, I’m flashing, I’m flashing (OK OK!)
I’m flashing, I’m flashing, I’m flashing (ALRIGHT!)

[Verse 1]:
I’m flashing, these bast*rds, tryna capture… My mind
Old fashioned; same tactics, adapting… New times
My passions, outlasting, these moments… THE NIGHT!
Is passin’, so fast that, it’s passin’... us by!

They try take everything, but can’t take my rights
Can’t stand that, so instead, they just take, my life
Imagine the fear when I’m walking at night–
The last thing I wanna see As a black man
Is a cop right behind (alright!)

Flashing flashing lights– Won’t go down without a fight
I’m just tryna get home please don’t fire
I don’t wanna give my mom a reason to cry
(What? I’M DONE!)
Had enough lies

I’m just tryna live– Everybody wanna die
Please let me go home I don’t wanna die
I’m just tryna live everybody wanna die
Huh… Huhh..

[BRIDGE 2]:
I’m flashing, I’m flashing, I’m flashing (ALRIGHT!)
I’m flashing, I’m flashing, I’m flashing (I’m seein’ flashin lights!)
My life it, is flashing Right be-fore My EYES
It’s flashing– It’s flashing
YOU KNOW THIS IS NOT ALRIGHT!

[Chorus 2]:
I’m flashing, I’m flashing, I’m flashing (Alright!)
I’m flashing, I’m flashing, I’m flashing (flashin lights!)
I’m flashing, I’m flashing, I’m flashing (the lights!)
I’m flashing, I’m flashing, I’m flashing (oh, iight!)

[VERSE 2]:
High fashion! Lights flashin’
I’m just tryna make it home tonight
I'm a man... I’m unarmed
Tell me why that pistol at your side?
Can you really do this to me while you look me in my eyes?
What about my rights?
They don’t matter?
Because my skin’s not WHITE!?

[INTERLUDE]
Cop: FREEZE! GET ON THE GROUND
Travis: “What? Look man I’m just tryna make it ho–”
Cop (in exasperation): “I SAID GET ON THE f*ckING GROUND” “PUT YOUR HANDS WHERE I CAN SEE THEM”
Travis: “AYE MAN GET OFF ME, GET OFF ME MAN I'M JUST TRYING TO GET HOME I DIDNT DO ANYTHING
Cop: STOP RESISTING

(UNO DOS TRES CUATRO)

[Final Verse]
I'm a MAN im a black MAN look at my FACE
Running and i'm running tryna run from my race
Reading textbooks filled with lies that sh*t changed
When in reality it's all still the same
Huh
Take the chain and I break the chain
And now the chain hanging from my neck
With a gold piece hanging at the end, and i take pride in it–
Showing massuh' just how I flex
Huh
Call myself a N****a– same word they used to call me
Cuz I believe what I'm told
Get it by, any means necessary– way that I was brought up–
I’m a product of the way the streets cold
Huh...
And the whip was hot
And my whip still hot I drop the top a lot when the block’s hot
Cuz we’re locked in the box and my dreams the only key that we got
But they took em all away with a shot....
Bang...

[Outro]: MLK Jr
I have a dream....
