lyrics

raise your right hand to the heavens
place your left hand on the book
cast the mothers in the jury box
your most immaculate look

for it's death that's on trial
and color that hangs from your bones
truth forever on the scaffold
wrong forever on the throne

it's open season on old black joe
and open season on the poor
while death sits cleaning his revolver
on the steps outside my door

and all the scribes stand their ground
to absolve themselves of the drone
truth forever on the scaffold
wrong forever on the throne

it's open season on our children
my god have mercy on our souls
as the resistance that we've weaponized
is just waiting to explode
