( Excessive lethal force: black males killed by police song lyrics )
ANOTHER ONE SHOT
Copyright 2015 - MickTerry.com

Caught the headline story when I turned on the news:
another one down on the dark side of town going viral again.
Now, it's twice as gory from three sep'rate views.
And one's in HD for the whole world to see and it's more of the same.
Just one more black man on a lengthening list?

    Look what we've got, there's ANOTHER ONE SHOT,
    a young black man killed by a cop.
    Look what we've got, there's ANOTHER ONE SHOT,
    a young black man killed by a cop.

Shot eight times in his back as he's running away.
Sure didn't appear that a danger was near and the kid was unarmed.
While the dash cam kept track, cell phone filming away.
There's a cam'ra somewhere YouTube's waiting to air. Again, the cop was unharmed.
Just one more black man.   How about we get pissed?

    CHORUS

        Couldn't they shoot for the knees?
        Or somewhere else not so lethal?
        Couldn't they shoot for the knees?
        Seemed to work for Jim Caviezel.     *

    CHORUS

Just one more black man on a lengthening list?
Just one more black man.   How about we get pissed?

    CHORUS
