Verse 1
Society isn’t equal
Please don't let it kid you
You'll go to court
But the laws
Won't apply to you.
Believe in equality
You must be joking
Cause a broken taillight
Means your not walking.
Stop resisting is the line they preach to you.
Regurgitating, Isomorphism
Behaving like heards that move
Swatz said don’t obey unjust rules.
Remember everything Hitler did was
Always lawful.
Most blacks on TV are just a token
The reality is that many are choking.
Others that have the power need
Collaboration to move the nation.
Western society forgets the victim
The developing world was the founding
Heart of everything nation.
Colonies with no reparation
And then you expect those people
To have respect for your nation
Low down dirty America no one
Can change its social structures
Infiltrated with privatisation and corruption
Institutionalised keeping things the same.
Gather the knowledge of your history
To bring about change.


Chorus
His name was Trayvon
And yes he got shot
Walking through a
Neighbourhood
Skittles in his poc
Zimmerman
Is told to stand off
Retreat by the cops
No direct threat
But still he plays cops


Verse 2
Tray is just ordinary kid in the street
But the lunatic named Zimmerman
He is about to meet
Yes you were the one
Wannabe be cop
Glock in your hand
Willis die hard mission
But you failed to realise
That it was all perception
No immediate threat
You leave us perplexed
You just shot a boy
That you claimed a suspect
But the truth of the matter is
Your mind is the crime
You were hasty
Ran the risk
Now do the time
As you were the one
Who gunned the boy down
For no apparent reason
And your claim is unfound
He is the victim and your are
The criminal you instigated
Confrontation; his fear is unimaginable.

Chorus
His name was Trayvon
And yes he got shot
Walking through a
Neighbourhood
Skittles in his poc
Zimmerman
Is told to stand off
Retreat by the cops
No direct threat
But still he plays cops


Verse 3
Your the story of the ignorant
American society
Criminalisation, pervasive fear
Keep the blacks over there
If they come this way
Make sure you shoot
Before they get you.
We kept them locked up for years
And now we're living in fear
Protect our wealth
And capital too
Even if we shoot the innocent
It's all worth it .
Our safety is paramount
So anything is worth it.
Adversarial system
But the skin is being judged
Prosecution will fail
To do the right job
You can always guarantee the
Defendant walks free
The land of free
How the irony bleeds
