This man just went down
Screaming
Asking for an ambulance
But these are police
So whatever happens,
It’s just
Law
And nevermind the part
About poisoned water
And private property
They’ll say he should not have been there
None of us are supposed to be
Anywhere
His name is Eric,
If you remember nothing else,
Remember that part . . .
