Red light, stop right
There where you are
Red light, stop right
There where you are (There where you are)

Out of the frying pan, into the fire
Burning down the people's souls
My high anxiety is getting higher
Feels like I'm gonna blow
Gone is the breeze that used to be so sweet
Poison is the wind that blows
It can't be long till the military come
With a knock, knock, knock on your door alright

Red light, stop right
There where you are
Red light, stop right
There where you are (There where you are)

(Gone) Emancipation
(Gone) Race relation
(Gone) Most of the rebels are gone
(Gone) The trust in nation
(Gone) The time we're wastin'
(Gone) The people's patience is gone

Broken economy, our streets are dire
Even more than before
I need some betterness to take me higher
Feels like I'm gonna blow
Yeah gone are the days when people used to say
"Everything is alright"
No place to run, now here your karma come
With a knock, knock, knock on your door

Red light, stop right
There where you are
Red light, stop right
There where you are (There where you are)

Red light, stop right
There where you are
Red light, stop right
There where you are (There where you are)

Pick up the pieces, let it begin, cause this is the way that we flow
Higher and higher and higher we go
Through dedication, self-preservation Hailie (high) Selassie (high)

(Gone) Marcus Garvey, Montgomery Martin
(Gone) All the rebels are gone
(Gone) We've lost our way
(Gone) Darkness is the day
(Gone) Most of the rebels are gone
Red light
Red light
Red light

We can ride, we can roll, we can breathe
We can talk, we can walk, we can stop
At the red light
We can smoke, we can do what we want
And be real with the blunt, we just stop
At the red light

We'll stay true, and be you
And be up way above with no pushin' or shovin'
At the red light
We can ride, we can roll, we can breathe
We can talk, we can walk, we'll just stop
At the red light
We can smoke, we can do what we want
And be real with the blunt, we just stop
At the red light
We'll stay true, and be you
And be up way above with no pushin' or shovin', red light
