if i had a son

attention mr. zimmerman where are you
don’t wanna argue i’m praying for you its hard to
you’re in trouble or should be i betcha scared too
but how could you and how dare you
yea dude please tell me something i don’t know
y’probably can’t though, so wheres our hope and our faith go
[5] could the lord be using you george to say sumpn deep
could it be time to reawaken us from dumb sleep
the clearer i see its harder to act poised
[4] you’re in the minority of who’s killing black boys
now if we add up the stats of latinos and blacks
that’s murdered with gats [3] it’s way more than iraq
who even knows that who remembers to care
how can we step out there after we’re made aware
it ain’t glamorous it’ll probably never bring us fame
but turning away from the truth is a damn shame
now back to you georgie i ain’t forgot about ya
come up outcha house [2] i’d probably slap the snot up outcha
it’s not a solution i know but it is a start
apparently you made a martyr so you played your part
you probably know that god’s gonna deal wit you regardless
you and your damaged heart, assuming u have a heart
took a young life its bad enough to damage one
uhh, minister blakes, by the way i have a son,
six months old, we named him [1] ellison
