Lyrics

762 homicides
3550 shootings
4331 shooting victims
Chi town stand up

I'm sitting down watching TV watching the news on channel 7 ABC
Every day it's the same ol thing all these people getting killed from these gangs
And people that just ain't right they crazy enough to just take your life
Aye put the guns down put the guns down you need to fight with your hands and be a freaking man now
Stop selling loud that's the easy way out get a real job and show them what you're really talking about
And I don't get how you sag your pants how do these girls even give you a chance?
I'm sure that y'all can understand that all I want is better for my black men
There's little kids out there that's been shot or killed this needs to come to a end

Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
(You need to put the guns down)
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
(You need to put the guns down)
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the

There's so much poverty in these streets
This isn't what the children should even see
We've become deteriorated
Need to restore the peace
And finally get rid of this disease
So tired of police killing innocent black men
Cause if the color of their skin
Always targeted swear that they don't want want to see us win
Got us stuck in the hood cause they make it too expensive
To live in a place where there is coexistence
They're apprehensive putting us in prison
White men breaks the law & they pay it no attention
Black man does it and he gets a sentence it's senseless
So much injustice in this system
Unity and love is all that we're missing it's hidden
I couldn't even imagine how the parents would feel if their kids got killed

Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
(You need to put the guns down)
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
(You need to put the guns down)
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the

We used to stand together as one
Now we shoot each other and don't know where we came from
Doing drugs shooting guns cause they think it's cool
When they really need to worry about their future and school
End up on the street & you'll look like a fool
Cause this world is full of tricks and it's very cruel
Too many innocent lives being taken away and it's not okay
Lets build a brighter future and make a better day
For the sake of the kids they shouldn't grow up seeing & hearing this
Can't even go outside they crib
Cause they think they gon get hit

Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
(You need to put the guns down)
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
(You need to put the guns down)
Put the guns down
Put the guns down
Put the guns down

Put the guns down
