  • Mistaken identity
    You really got this one wrong
    Racially singled out
    He must have a gun

    And yet you get off with no time

    How can this be the answer
    No crime yet they shot away
    He now lies dead, the blood is on your hands
    Hands which were supposed to protect
    People like the man you blew away
    This isn't justice, this is corruption

    The four protectors fired forty one shots
    Hitting him nineteen times
    Searching the body there were no weapons found
    He lies with all who died in vain

    Murder must be still be a crime
    When our inherent freedom
    Is hatefully gunned down
    By who we entrust

    And yet you get off with no time

    How can this be the answer
    No crime yet they shot away
    He now lies dead, the blood is on your hands
    Hands which were supposed to protect
    People like the man you blew away
    This isn't justice, this is corruption

    The four protectors fired forty one shots
    Hitting him nineteen times
    Searching the body there were no weapons found
    He lies with all who died in vain

    Contempt breeds contamination

    How can this be the answer
    No crime yet they shot away
    He now lies dead, the blood is on your hands
    Hands which were supposed to protect
    People like the man you blew away
    This isn't justice, this is corruption

    The four protectors fired forty one shots
    Hitting him nineteen times
    Searching the body there were no weapons found
    He lies with all who died in vain
