Black men leaders cried for freedom
White policemen shot them dead.
The survivors get in prison
Based on laws which no one understands.

What can we do
What can we say?
Can it be law to kill your neighbours?
What can we do
What can we say?
Can it be wrong to end it all?

White man yawning in his armchair
Smiled while watching white TV.
Hundreds of people death or injured
He never understands this hysteria.

What can we do
What can we say? ...

Snipers sitting in police-cars

Cautious stroking machine-guns.
Never thought of black suppression

They were paid for every hit they have.

What can we do
What can we say? ...
What can we do
What can we say? ...
