Went to get the mail today
Got a letter from a kid down in Texas
Said, " My friend got murdered"
"The judge and the jury let the mother fucker get away"
Read a statement from Brian's mom
Sounded so fucking familiar
Punk Rock kid tried to feed every one
Punk rock kid trying to make a world worth living in
What a piece of jurisprudence
What a piece of legal brilliance
The lawyers used the Mohawk defense
When the out casts do a murder (columbine)
It's a national tragedy
When the outcast gets murdered
We say he had it coming
Land of the free, your free to kill anyone that people are afraid of
Land of the free, your free to kill anyone that people are afraid of
We have a history of victim blaming
He kills his wife we say she asked for it
Black man gets drug to death we say he was in the wrong neighborhood
The police shot him down we say he had a history of mental illness and drug abuse Their lives were of no use
White-collar conservative businessman
Point your plastic finger at me
Soon my kind are gonna drop away and die
But I'm gonna wave my Freak Flag high.

    General CommentThis song is about a kid who was killed in a fight by jocks since he was a punk. Jeff Ott slowly turns this song from a tribute song to Brian into an anthem against society. It's an amazing song and I would also like to say, rip Brian.
