    Society has stopped listening

    I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening

    Sir, I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening

    Mama, I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening
    We have lost our way
    Whether it's race, or color
    Religion or creed
    Sexual orientation or gender
    It doesn't change how we bleed
    Society has stopped listening
    We are all humans
    We need to teach our children well
    To show compassion
    To show patience
    To show tolerance
    Society has stopped listening
    Cries fall on deaf ears
    only to make the evening news
    Hatred is inherited
    It is not a birthright
    Indifference is not equality
    Society has stopped listening
    Remember you are not alone
    We try and stand united
    While the masses assign hyphens to us all
    Division is meant for one thing
    To cause a crumble
    To cause a fall

    Society has stopped listening

    I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening

    Sir, I can't breathe

    Society has stopped listening

    Mama, I can't breathe
