    Lyrics

    [Verse 1: Beyoncé]
    Tryna rain, tryna rain on the thunder
    Tell the storm I'm new
    I'ma walk, come and march on the regular
    Painting white flags blue

    [Refrain: Beyoncé]
    Lord forgive me, I've been running
    Running blind in truth
    I'ma wade, I'ma wade through the shallow
    Tell the deep I'm new

    [Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]
    I'm telling these tears, "Go and fall away, fall away"
    May the last one burn into flames

    [Chorus: Beyoncé]
    Freedom! Freedom! I can't move
    Freedom, cut me loose!
    Singin', freedom! Freedom! Where are you?
    Cause I need freedom too!
    I break chains all by myself
    Won't let my freedom rot in hell
    Hey! I'ma keep running
    Cause a winner don't quit on themselves

    [Verse 2: Beyoncé]
    I'ma wade, I'ma wade through the waters
    Tell the tide, "Don't move"
    I'ma riot, I'ma riot through your borders
    Call me bulletproof

    [Refrain: Beyoncé]
    Lord forgive me, I've been running
    Running blind in truth
    I'ma wade, I'ma wade through the shallow
    Tell the deep I'm new

    [Pre-Chorus: Beyoncé]
    I'm telling these tears, "Go and fall away, fall away"
    May the last one burn into flames

    [Chorus: Beyoncé]
    Freedom! Freedom! I can't move
    Freedom, cut me loose!
    Singin', freedom! Freedom! Where are you?
    Cause I need freedom too!
    I break chains all by myself
    Won't let my freedom rot in hell
    Hey! I'ma keep running
    Cause a winner don't quit on themselves

    [Verse 3: Kendrick Lamar]
    Ten Hail Marys, I meditate for practice
    Channel 9 news tell me I'm movin' backwards
    Eight blocks left, death is around the corner
    Seven misleadin' statements 'bout my persona
    Six headlights wavin' in my direction
    Five-O askin' me what's in my possession
    Yeah I keep runnin', jumpin' the aqueducts
    Fire hydrants and hazard dust
    Smoke alarms on the back of us
    But mama don't cry for me, ride for me
    Try for me, live for me
    Breathe for me, sing for me
    Honestly guidin' me
    I could be more than I gotta be
    Stole from me, lied to me, nation hypocrisy
    Code on me, drive on me
    Wicked my spirit inspired me
    Like yeah, open correctional gates in higher desert
    Yeah, open our mind as we cast away oppression
    Yeah, open the streets and watch our beliefs
    And when they carve my name inside the concrete
    I pray it forever reads

    [Chorus: Beyoncé]
    Freedom! Freedom! I can't move
    Freedom, cut me loose!
    Singin', freedom! Freedom! Where are you?
    Cause I need freedom too!
    I break chains all by myself
    Won't let my freedom rot in hell
    Hey! I'ma keep running
    Cause a winner don't quit on themselves

    [Outro: Kendrick Lamar]
    What you want from me?
    Is it truth you seek? Oh father can you hear me?
    What you want from me?
    Is it truth you seek? Oh father can you hear me?
    Hear me out

    [Skit: Agnez Dereon]
    I had my ups and downs but I always find the inner strength
    to pull myself up. I was served lemons, but I made lemonade
