"Burning Lafayette" as written by Joseph Birch, James Mccarlie Findlay, Will Mcgonagle, Tomas Edward O'donoghue and Justin Robin Schlosberg....
Watch out
Birthdays can kill
Scar laden wounds
That time won't heal
His eyes still shine like gold

Fall in with the forced perspective
Information pre-selected
Waiting for the final verdict
Questions muted answers loaded

Condemned by innocence
Condemned because he knew too much
Birthdays come around to haunt
Ready to rise and fall again

Victims with a guilty conscience
Flashing cameras snap like vultures
Preying on the innocent
Corrupt officials craving power
Organize controlled disorder
Justice hiding in the corner
Waiting for the final verdict
Sentence passed, case is closed

Swallow line by line
The script fed
From official sources
Experts without knowledge
Take the stand

Deflect attention from the questions
Quick convictions get promotions
Waiting for the final verdict
Sentence passed, case is closed
