My hands are up

Don’t shoot me please

Young black man

Just walking home

It makes his mother cry

 

It is my right

Leave me alone

Young white man

Asserting his rights

Assault rifle on his back

 

Oh waste of loss

America we’ve failed

Storm clouds gather

Justice must rain down

Tears are not enough.

 

 And from Sweet Honey and the rock: Ella’s Song
