-LYRICS-

(Intro: Jonathan Emile)
This song is dedicated to the murders…
May god judge you accordingly. Good luck with that one…

(Hook: Jonathan Emile)
You see the beast starts sprayin’
That’s what I’m sayin’
Dem not playin’
Lord, Heaven Help Dem, Heaven Help Dem

(Jonathan Emile) Kendrick Lamar on the track…
(Kendrick Lamar) Jonathan Emile What’s happening homie?
(Kendrick Lamar) We’re marching the streets right now…

(Continued: Jonathan Emile)
See di man dem ‘pon di corner ‘pon cocked ready to draw
When dem face in-front of Jah
God, Heaven Help Dem, Heaven Help Dem

(Verse 1: Jonathan Emile)
Yeah, It’s Jonathan Emile oui… yeah
Feast your eyes realize this one
That the police are just people with guns
I mean people with funds and guns given the power of blood
To lick-a-shot in a di street and get your people to run — son
And when a cop dies, we all mortified
But when a cop kills he don’t need no alibi
I’m not sayin’ that they should be flawless
I’m telling you the world is lawless
Because we got young knuckleheads power tripping with they tools
And who they serving and protecting? Brother not you…
Not true? Why you think dem call dem babylon?
Cause them just agents of the system.
Twist one up get your fist up in the air
Diallo, Bell, and Villanueva I say a prayer.
I wonder do they include all the police murders when they go and calculate the murder rate each year?

(Hook: : Jonathan Emile)
You see the beast starts sprayin’
That’s what I’m sayin’
Dem not playin’
Lord, Heaven Help Dem, Heaven Help Dem
See di man dem ‘pon di corner ‘pon cocked ready to draw
When dem face in-front of Jah
God, Heaven Help Dem, Heaven Help Dem

(Verse 2: Kendrick Lamar)
It’s Kendrick Lamar from Compton to Montréal
They all say the average black man only live till 25
(Jah) Pac died at 25
How many kids you know dead at 20? Five?
Now that’s life I know 10 that’s crumbling in coffins
Dead as a doorknob, fresh out of high-school and couldn’t find no job
went strait to the grave
It’s crazy how the grim reaper in love with such tender age
I think about it as I gage upon my ceiling
He woke up brushed his teeth then jumped in the shower
Stared at the mirror after he dried his face with a towel
And said this can be the day I might pass away
From a altercation my homie got into yesterday
Or mistaken identity him thinking I was his enemy
When I never seen him a day in my life, this is life for a young black man
With his future and his burner in his hand
While you’re on your grind keep this mind. We say…

(Bridge: Jonathan Emile)
Heaven help the man who takes another man’s life
Heaven help the man who makes the other man fight
Heaven help the man who fears the other man because he got a tan or he black or he white

(Insert: Kendrick Lamar)
That’s Jonathan Emile by the way
Mindpeacelove records
Kendrick Lamar. Take ‘em home…

(Continued: Jonathan Emile)
Heaven help the mamma who just lost her by they guns and the justice that was there for safety
And heaven knows just why they had to take his life
And people are angry and people want answers,
He wasn’t a nuisance he wasn’t a gangster.
They want justice in these streets but there seems to be no justice for police and so
Heaven help the man who crush another man will.
Heaven help the man who makes another man kill.
Help the rioters who’s going crazy
In the streets all they’re really screaming out is save me.

(Hook: Jonathan Emile)
You see the beast starts sprayin’
That’s what I’m sayin’
Dem not playin’
Lord, Heaven Help Dem, Heaven Help Dem
See di man dem ‘pon di corner ‘pon cocked ready to draw
When dem face in-front of Jah
God, Heaven Help Dem, Heaven Help Dem

(Ourto: Jonathan Emile)
Kendrick Lamar I want to thank you very much for doing this song.
It’s Jonathan Emile — 514 stand up.
Franco Proietti on the alto saxophone
Jonathan Emile on the beat
This goes out to anybody who has been a victim of abuse of power, hate — violence. It’s time we stand up”

(Finale: Jonathan Emile)
Ferguson aye, to the world. Ahh..
Montréal – New York, Ayy.
Dem killin’ di people dem,
Lyin’ to the people all he time. Ahh..
Inna di streets you see a rainbow
We’re marching’ for our rights. Ooh.

Fin.
