Blue Lights

A funky night on the town goes sideways when Nadir gets pulled over by the police. “Blue Lights” describes the tension as our hero wonders what will happen next. “Are you good cop or bad cop? Will you arrest me, give me a ticket, or will I have to throw down?”

THROW DOWN!!!

It’s Friday night and I’m on the one.
You know my game is trump tight
Because I Just got paid. I’m feeling good
I’m finna do my thang at Funk Night.

I’m rolling South on 75.
Rocking my body to the beat.
But when I look back it’s a heart attack.
Damn. That’s cold. I’m being followed by the heat.
That’s when I see the

Blue lights in my rearview
What did I do? Do wrong?
Are you good cop? Are you bad cop?
Will you arrest me?
Or this time will I have to throw down?
THROW DOWN!

What The ****?
Alright… Calm down. Calm down.
Breathe.
Pull over.
Alright…
Wallet on the dashboard. License and registration ready.
What did I do? Was I speeding? Are my tags expired?
Am I gonna get cuffed?
Am I gonna get tasered?
Am I gonna get shot?
Am I gonna have to THROW DOWN?!!

Tension is high! It’s out of control!
Are you good cop, are you bad cop on patrol.
Will you arrest me for no reason? Hunt me down like open season?
Are you hero? Are you villian? I don’t know, know, know, know…

Blue lights in my rearview
What did I do? Do wrong?
Are you good cop? Are you bad cop?
Will you arrest me? Or let me ride?
Blue lights in my rearview
Will you take thangs too far
Are you hero? Are you villian?
Will you test me?
Or this time will I have to throw down?
THROW DOWN!
