This song was written for the victims of the SFPD in particular, and for victims of police violence nationwide.
Those who hunger for justice are now starving at the station door
Streets of the city, an SFPD killing floor
Will their children see more of the same, like targets in a video game?

The statue of St. Francis is weeping crimson tears
Blood of the innocent rushing to his ears
It’s 12:01, motherfuckers, past time to change the guard at the gate
The city of St. Francis presided over by this incarnation of hate

Alex Nieto, Mario Woods, Luis Gongora, Amilcar Perez Lopez
And now Jessica Williams, systemically sent to their deaths
And too many before them to name, a local and a national shame
