Black in Deep Red, 2014

Canzone ispirata alle proteste seguite all'omicidio del diciottenne nero Michael Brown, avvenuto il 9 agosto 2014 a Ferguson, Missouri, ad opera dell'agente di polizia Darren Wilson, un bianco. Sulle prime la corte di Saint Louis decise di non incriminare nemmeno l'assassino, facendo ricorso ad una procedura molto sommaria, irrituale, che scatenò la rabbia della comunità nera. Alle proteste lo Stato oppose non solo la polizia in assetto antisommossa ma addirittura squadre speciali SWAT pesantemente armate, militarizzando la città e dichiarando il coprifuoco.
Poi l'inchiesta fu avocata dalle autorità federali, le quali comunque sentenziarono che Wilson aveva agito per legittima difesa.
Curiosamente però la città di Ferguson ha accettato di pagare un risarcimento di 1,5 milioni di dollari alla famiglia di Brown...
They're in soldier mode, they're in toy soldier mode right now
They can't move their hands off their sticks
'Cause they a bunch a' cowards

Watch them assemble
Looking for trouble
March in formation
March for our nation

Now I don't care what I've been told
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
This police state is much too cold
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
Cut from crooked cloth and mold
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
This police state is much too old
Hey, two, three, four, five, six

Puppets, erect
With batteries set
They charge for a while
And fall right into rank and file
When they forget
That we cut the checks
They get really riled
And fall right into rank and file
They fall right into rank and file
They fall right into rank and file
Fall right into rank and file
They fall right into rank and file
I'm payin' you to harass me?

Now watch how they tremble
Without credential
Orders they follow
Skin deep and hollow
Their governing master
To their hip is plastered
Say protect and serve us
But murder's not service

Now I don't care what I've been told
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
To kill so quick is animal
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
Now I don't care what they might say
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
It's gon' come back around one day
Hey, two, three, four, five, six

Puppets, erect
With batteries set
They charge for a while
And fall right into rank and file
When they forget
That we cut the checks
They get really riled
And fall right into rank and file
They fall right into rank and file
They fall right into rank and file
Fall right into rank and file
They fall right into rank and file
They fall right into rank and file
They fall right into rank and file
Fall right into rank and file
They fall right into rank and file

Hey, two, three, four, five, six
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
Hey, two, three, four, five, six
That's too much power

If we make you nervous
What is your purpose?
Worship your trigger
And ignore the figures

You're tumblin' into rank and file, and
Crumblin' into rank and file, and
Stumblin' into rank and file, and
Mumblin' into rank and file
You're humblin' into rank and file, and
Fumblin' into rank and file
You're tremblin' into rank and file
And fall right into rank and file
