Benjamin.. (ohh ohh)
Not the first, but hopefully the last
Rest in peace...yeah
This song is for you....come on

I feel anger and frustration but
Just let me mention that I don't want attention
Cause I didn't even knew him
But I feel him anyway, yo Benjamin
your friends called you Baloo, that's the only thing I know about you
Before I took the mission to write this song about your death
your tradegy and all the negativity about that night, about that fight
when you couldn't keep on running for your life
That soon was taken and believe me when I say I'm not fakin'
No lie that I wanna cry, you were only fifteen
With so much to go, and so much to live
But now you all can see what those mother fuckin' nazis did
And the police didn't do shit, they were just standing with statistics,
thought they had tacticts
Cops dumb and blind, said if we only could rewind
To late for that, but we'll keep our faith cause you're with God

(Why did) Why did you have to go away?
(Why did) Why did it has to be this way?
I'm still thinkin' about those days and the way it used to be
(Nobody) Nobody wanted you to go
(That's why) That's why I want you to know
That even though you're not around
Our love still grow...

Now we know that you're in heaven
Now we know that you're OK
And because you couldn't stay, we will pray and keep on praying
To our lord, our heavently father
So he can take good care of you, Benny Baloo
From my point of view, we all loved you
Especially your mama, but she'll be OK
Cause she knows that you're with papa up in the skies
No more lies, that sounds nice
Even though you paid your price, the price of being different
But there's no word like different, cause we're all the same
With a mother and a father and the right to live
No matter skin, no language
Black, white or yellow. That's the message in my mellow melody
Can't you see, it's to you from me, Danny, Mickey and Milo, now you know
But anyway, we'll always miss you (Ohh...always miss you, baby!!)
Please rest in peace, now we say farwell on our knees

Why did) Why did you have to go away?
(Why did) Why did it has to be this way?
I'm still thinkin' about those days and the way it used to be
(Nobody) Nobody wanted you to go
(That's why) That's why I want you to know
That even though you're not around
Our love still grow...

ohh...we love you, baby!!
yeah, yeah...

Why did) Why did you have to go away?
(Why did) Why did it has to be this way?
I'm still thinkin' about those days and the way it used to be
(Nobody) Nobody wanted you to go
(That's why) That's why I want you to know
That even though you're not around
Our love still grow...

Ohh..our love still grow...oh no no no no no no no...
