Racially inefficient--
A malfunction prevalent in the system.
Blood rusts dry
On gears monkey wrenched with innocent life; However cogs refuse to slow
With each denial that we know.
The machine runs on,
Murderous in its service of peace.

"Eye for an eye"
As long as you're not white.
Injustice, as the hammer falls.
"Eye for an eye"
As long as pockets aren't lined.
Injustice, as the hammer...

Economically deficient--
A virus rampant in this organism.
Blood runs dry
In corpses too poor to pay for their life;
However teeth refuse to slow
With each refusal that we know.
The monster feeds on,
Murderous in its quest for peace.

"Eye for an eye"
As long as you're not white.
Injustice, as the hammer falls.
"Eye for an eye"
As long as pockets aren't lined.
Injustice, as the hammer...

A barbaric vestigium,
But even that aside,
Your intentions get lost in the flawed design.
And the financially inept,
The black men that you net -
Guilty or innocent - will walk this mile more often than me or mine.
Oh no, no, no.
Oh no, no, no.
Oh no.
The ship of justice has just run ashore.
Oh no, no, no.
Oh no, no, no.
Oh no.
The ship of justice is in just need of reform.

"Eye for an eye"
As long as you're not white.
Injustice, as the hammer falls.
"Eye for an eye"
As long as pockets aren't lined.
Injustice, as the hammer falls.
