America Cries Floyd's Neck Is Mine



oh Momma America cries
oh this demon knee is killing me
Momma
this knee is chocking me
Momma
move this evil knee off me
[man]
-make yourself clear-
are you the killer knee
or Floyd's neck is yours
And you feel
America is chocked by the
your silence
heavy on my nick
you man you killing me
take off this evil knee
America Floyd's neck is mine
Take off this evil knee of me
Floyd a son for me
Floyd a brother for me
Oh man Floyd is me
His neck is mine
this evil knee
is killing me
America cries
America dies
under this pressure
of demon knee
