It's Very Simple


United States

A riot is the language of the unheard

The unheard wants justice

Law making is the language of the ruthless

The ruthless cannot be trusted


Our government is very corrupt 

But our government does not think so

It's hard to fix what you see

When your eyes are closed 


We've tried and we've tried

We've almost died

America may have failed

But our need for equality still sails
