I can’t breathe
Oh mama the temple is burning
Oh mama my lungs are aching
Oh mama God help me, I can’t breathe
Oh mama they cast a hell of hate upon me
Oh mama I can not breathe
Oh mama their hate is burn’n in my soul
Oh mama I can not breathe
Oh mama my people are choking
We can not breathe!
Oh mama please don’t cry
all our breaths are sacred
Oh mama Under bended knee
They just let us die
Oh mama May dear God help them see
