Trivium – Contempt Breeds Contamination lyrics

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 the shot away
He now lies dead, the bloods on your hands
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 protecters
Fired 41 shots
Hitting him 19 times
Searching the body
There were no weapons found
He lies with all who died in vain

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

And yet
You get
Off with
No time

How can this be the answer?
No crime yet the shot away
He now lies dead, the bloods 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 protecters
Fired 41 shots
Hitting him 19 times
Searching the body
There were no weapons found
He lies with all who died in vain

Contempt breeds contamination
Contempt breeds contamination
Contempt breeds contamination

(Matt Solo's)

Fired 41 shots
Hitting him 19 times

He lies with all who died in vain

Contempt breeds contamination
Contempt breeds contamination
Contempt breeds contamination

    It is about a man named Amadou Diallo who was shot 19 times, with 41 shots fired. He was a Muslim living in new york as a street vendor, he was ordered to stop outside his house by nypd police, and due to his poor English speaking skills he pulled out his wallet to show the police who he was. An officer assumed he was drawing a gun, and he and his fellow officers opened fire.
