Musical Escape: Let Me Out by the Gorillaz ft. Pusha T and Mavis Staples

You say I’m dangerous, I speak for the nameless
I fly with the vultures, I be with them bangers
If change don’t come, then the change won’t come
If the bands make ’em dance, then the rain gon’ come

Look into my eyes, mama, tell me what you see
Tell me there’s a chance for me to make it off the streets
Tell me that I won’t die at the hands of the police
Promise me I won’t outlive my nephew and my niece
Promise me my pastor isn’t lyin’ as he preach
Tell me that they’ll listen if it’s lessons that I teach
Tell me there’s a heaven in the sky where there is peace
But until then, I keep my piece in arm’s reach
(Yeah!)

[Mavis Staples:]
Am I passin’ into the light?
(Am I looking into mercy’s eyes?)
All the world is out of your hands
(Then ascending into the dark) another night
You got to die a little if you wanna live
Change coming
You’d best be ready for it

[2-D:]
Something I’ve begun to fear is about to change its form
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s a shift in times
But I won’t get tired at all
