Track Name: Black Skies
Dark skin, wrong town
White hoods, on horses making their rounds

Won’t stop til his body’s hung
Light their cross and think they won
Every night I ask God and pray
When the devil comes back he won’t look like me…

Black skies are falling
They’re falling…they’re falling…
Black skies are falling, they’re falling…

He’s strung up, off the ground
Rope creeks, the cowards nowhere around.

A man killed without a fight
Left to rot in the morning light
Bloodline snuffed in a single night
You’re never wrong if you’re always white

Black skies are falling
They’re falling…they’re falling…
Black skies are falling, they’re falling…

I looked out, can’t see
Hall light, reflection looking at me

Mama says they’re gone tonight
Is that they’re fire or just moonlight
I lay awake, consumed with fear
Do I hear hooves are they getting near?

Black skies are falling
They’re falling…they’re falling…
Black skies are falling, they’re falling…

They look like me, just like me
