And now

He didn’t get the message and then go to Disney World
He didn’t get the message and then go to work in a soup kitchen
He didn’t get the message and then come to New York for the sights
Or to see the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center or the city’s bright lights
He heard them calling, Barack and Eric and Jesse and Al
He heard their call and their message
They stirred the pot and set the stage
They stoked the fires and fed the rage
And he heard their message loud and clear
From the mobs in the streets of Brooklyn
What do we want? Dead cops.
When do we want it? Now.
And they stirred the pot and set the stage
They stoked the fires and fed the rage
And he heard the message and now, now is now
And Barack and Eric and Jesse and Al
Are saddened and their hearts and prayers go out
To the families of the murdered police
And how could it happen when all they wanted
Was a simple message of justice and peace
But they stirred the pot and set the stage
They stoked the fires and fed the rage
And now, now is now.
