Dave hause - Your ghost

Would it be convenient if he just rests in peace?
I saw his cousin crying
Wondering how you call the cops on the police
With a bootprint on your shoulder, face down in the street
Another precinct that's been rotted out
Another song of "I can't breathe"

I can't breathe
He said "I can't breathe"

Oh, what a privilege to hide behind a screen
Like biteless barking dogs
We yelp on an ever-tightening leash
Another public execution under a greedy, would be, king
Another desperate bloody anthem a crying family has to sing

I can't breathe (I can't breathe)
He said "I can't breathe" (I can't breathe)

I hope your ghost haunts all of our dreams
I hope you float like smoke over the blood machine
I hope you soak into the wick like kerosene
I hope it burns clean
How long will there be this song of "I can't breathe"?


(I can't breathe)
I can't breathe
(I can't breathe)
He said "I can't breathe" (I can't breathe)

Oh, what a privilege to pretend that we can't see
The chain, the whip, the badge, the gun
And now the ever-pressing knee
The knee we hired to protect us
The same knee he used to pray
The knee that bares the bruise
From being used to choke his life away

He said "I can't breathe" (I can't breathe)
"Mama, I can't breathe" (I can't breathe)

I hope your ghost haunts all of our dreams
I hope you float like smoke over the blood machine
I hope you soak into the wick like kerosene
I hope it burns clean

I hope your ghost haunts all of our dreams
I hope you float like smoke over the blood machine
When they say "Make it great again" is this what they mean?
Then let it burn clean
How long will there be this song of "I can't breathe"?

(I can't breathe)
"I can't breathe" (I can't breathe)
"Mama, I can't breathe" (I can't breathe)
I can't
