Stand your ground (song for Trayvon Martin)

Seen walking down the street in a hoodie and jeans

Shot dead in broad daylight at age seventeen

Killer walks free, still holding the gun

No sign of remorse at what he's done

Stand your ground, stand your ground

You're within your rights

Stand your ground, stand your ground

He's black and you're white

Stand your ground stand your ground

When he tries to run

Stand your ground, stand your ground

When you fire the gun

The myth of equality wears thinner every day

If the roles had been reversed there'd be hell to pay

Now it looks like his death managed to make the front page

But here's 50 quid says nothing will change

Stand your ground, stand your ground

You're within your rights

Stand your ground, stand your ground

He's black and you're white

Stand your ground stand your ground

When he tries to run

Stand your ground, stand your ground

When you fire the gun

And there's no surprises from the verdict received

They've already decided who to believe

Cause the killer was a pillar of the community

While the victim was just another teenage hoodie

Stand your ground, stand your ground

You're within your rights

Stand your ground, stand your ground

He's black and you're white

Stand your ground stand your ground

When he tries to run

Stand your ground, stand your ground

When you fire the gun
