Landed here uninvolved
questions there unresolved
you cut your hand as you threw
the push the shove came to pass
the battle planned real at last but not the one you thought you knew and
anger takes place of what's destroyed

Mt. Pleasant isn't anymore

In the end what went on was not about right and wrong
despite the charges that people threw
empty shelves broken glass
the battle planned real at last
but not the one you thought you knew
and anger takes place of what's removed

Mt. Pleasant isn't anymore

The police will not be excused
the police will not behave
all too much is lost in anger and never enough is saved
and anger takes place of what's ignored

Mt. Pleasant isn't anymore

    General CommentGang wars? Not likely.
    In 1991, inappropriate police actions resulted in the "Mt Pleasant Riot"...I assume this was the inspiration for the song.
