The song is a call to action sparked by the murders of George Floyd and Eric Garner, the June 2020 protests and riots, as well as the 400 years of systematic racism and oppression that has existed in America.

Lyrics:
Please Mr officer you’re killing me
I can’t breathe, no I can’t breathe
You swore for protect society
You’re violence is hypocrisy

Verse I
400 years of bloodshed
On the hands of America
My people cry out injustice
Babylon man look what you have done
Take to the streets
Cause we’ve tried it with peace
To breakdown all your systems of hate
So when will you learn
That your cities will burn
If you show violence is the way

Chorus
Please Mr officer you’re killing me
I can’t breathe no I can’t breathe
You swore for protect society
You’re violence is hypocrisy
Look into your soul and you will see
I’m not guilty of anything
You propagate atrocities
To kill the dream of equality

Verse II
400 years of oppression
In this land of America
You sacrifice all my Bredren
Tell me it’s for my own protection
Take to the streets
Cause we’ve turned all our cheeks
Yet still preach your doctrines of hate
But when will you learn
That your cities will burn
When you show violence is the way

Chorus
Please mr officer you’re killing me
I can’t breathe no I can’t breathe
You swore for protect society
You’re violence is hypocrisy
Look into your soul and you will see
I’m not guilty of anything
You propagate atrocities
To kill the dream of equality

Bridge
Only light can drive out the darkness
Only love will conquer their hate
We must change it for our children
Make our world a better place

Chorus
Please mr officer you’re killing me
I can’t breathe no I can’t breathe
You swore for protect society
You’re violence is hypocrisy
Look into your soul and you will see
I’m not guilty of anything
You propagate atrocities
To kill the dream of equality

Final Chorus
Please mr officer stand with me
And be the light for I to see
Protect our humanity
For Peace and love will set you free
Look into your soul and you will see
That we can live in harmony
Drive out hate and tyranny
Fulfill the dream of equality
