    Jena 6
    Jena 6
    Jena
    hmmm
    small town where blacks are still
    second class
    not treated as citizens
    but as a joke
    white supremacy reigns
    but for how long
    they never thought they would get
    nationwide coverage
    white america
    appears vunerable
    all this time
    they try to say
    racism is dead
    yet
    it never dies
    it just masquerades itself
    impersonates
    an angel of light
    yet full of darkness and disgust
    yeah
    Jena
    is their coming out party
    now they are the spotlight
    and Brother Bell is the main attraction
    they trying to sweep him into the system
    for standing against racial taunts
    while whitey gets a tap on the butt
    for innocent stunts
    nooses...
    hmmm
    when did they get to be so innocent
    symbolic
    of death to our kind
    klansmen
    rejoice
    for old school
    but
    this clock will not be rewound
    they should have killed us while they had the chance
    we are not going back
    we having too much trouble trying to move forward
    Jena
    court trial a mockery
    you've already made up your minds
    guilty and don't care about proving innocence
    but I declare this
    that come what may
    Black Light Justice
    shall be done
    cause
    Louisiana thought Katrina did some damage
    Jena may as well prepare for battle
    we aint taking this lying down
    serving notice on Jena
    days are numbered
    armageddon coming
    are you really sure
    you want to try us?
