lyrics

Mistreatment exposed with blood
Police target minority groups
Exemption for the sadist seekers
A graveyard of human rights

Authority, the ruler of our laws
It prays on age, gender, your skin

Social order: a systemic illusion
Discipline to suppress indignation
Punishment for not complying
The governance, flawed, misleading

Authority, the ruler of our laws
It prays on age, gender, your skin
Social
Harm

Search and find the power abuse
Documented police misconduct
Evident, the racial profiling
Death count, no reasonable cause

Authority, the ruler of our laws
It prays on age, gender, your skin
Social
Harm

The questions grow
As caskets close
Unsettled minds join
To become heard

From the mishandling arrives the need for accountability

Because you’ll find the cops
That shall seek
Their impunity
To be kept freed

From the mishandling arrives the need for accountability

On officers
The narrow-mindedness
Filled with prejudice
To govern their reasons.
For the headlines have read
Every twenty eight hours
A person of color
Is killed by a cop

A call to challenge
These unjust actions
To be held accounted
To honor those lost

Yearly, police
Claim more than one-
Thousand victims

Greatest percent
Of the lives lost
Are the non-white
Unarmed people

A call to challenge
These unjust actions
To be held accounted
To honor those lost
