GORILLAZ – Let Me Out lyrics

[Verse 1: Pusha T]
Mama Mavis, oh
Mama, they tried my patience
Obama is gone, who is left to save us?
So together we mourn, I’m praying for my neighbors
They say the devil’s at work and Trump is calling favors
You say I’m dangerous, I speak for the nameless
I fly with the vultures, I be with them bangers
If the change don’t come, then the change won’t come
If the bands make them dance, then the rain gon’ come
(Woo!)

[Pre-Chorus: Mavis Staples + Pusha T]
Tell my pastor look to the light
Am I looking into mercy’s eyes?
All the world, lend me your hands
I ascend and another dies!
You got to die a little
If you wanna live, change from the past
You best be ready for it

[Chorus: 2-D]
Something out the country
Fear is about to change it all
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s a shift in time
But I won’t get tired at all

[Refrain: Pusha T]
Let me out! Let me out!
Let me out! Let me out!

[Verse 2: Pusha T]
Look into my eyes, mama
Tell me what you see
Tell me there’s a chance for me to make it out 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 at arm’s reach
(Yeah!)

[Pre-Chorus: Mavis Staples + Pusha T]
Tell my pastor look to the light
Am I looking into Moses’ eyes?
All the world, lend me your hands
I ascend and another dies!
You got to die a little
If you wanna live, change is coming
You best be ready for it

[Chorus: 2-D]
Something out the country
Fear is about to change it all
Yeah, yeah, yeah, it’s a shift in times
But I won’t get tired at all

[Pre-Chorus: Mavis Staples + Pusha T]
Tell my pastor look to the light
Am I looking into mercy’s eyes?
All the world, lend me your hands
I ascend and another dies!
You got to die a little
If you wanna live, change is coming
You best be ready for it
(Yeah!)

[Outro: Mavis Staples]
Be ready
Ready for it
Be ready
Be ready
Oooh, oooh oooh
