Im riding in a car

Next thing you know i got stopped

I was riding to fast

The cop with its sirens dragged me out the car and beat me

All they did was beat me

Did not think that i was another human

To them i was a monster

A big black dirty rotten nigger as they said

All i could hear was my cries and bone break

I could feel my nose rip

I can feel my arms fall out my body

I can feel the blood rushing to my eye

And all i could do was cry
