I told a lie to save my self, And watch the crown as it fell. Murky trust left in its wake, Their reassurances that were fake.
I never saw wondering eyes, Get berated and demised All the people did was say, I should carry pepper spray,
I'm tired of getting the blame.
And now look at what we've achieved, No longer 97, but 99%.
99% who have a story to tell, Of horrific ordeals and dignity that fell, Of the failure of the people and law, Of the failure of the ones that saw. Stop blaming me what they did, When did I ever ask for it?
