about

Bang Bang is frustration and anger, protest and resistance.

“Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.”
- Dr. Martin Luther King Jr

This is for Dr. King.

lyrics

Innocence told me
Last night
I can’t protect you
Sleep tight
Livin’ ain’t easy
On high
They need to bring me
Down from the pulpit
Let loose the bang bang

Fear an unholy
Landslide
Bigots that preach from
On high
Suspend the rights of
Our kind
Call out the army
Shoulder the rifles
Let loose the bang bang

I don’t want to fight no more
But the soul is what we’re fighting for
And I can't give my holy land
To the old white man
King of the bang bang

Gimme strength to carry through
On the promise that I made to you
That I won’t give my holy land
To the old white man
King of the bang bang

Bark of a rifle
Memphis
Voice of a people
Silenced
Hellfire and brimstone
Riots
They want a fight
We’ll give them a fight
We'll let loose the bang bang

I don’t want to fight no more
But the soul is what we’re fighting for
And I can't give my holy land
To the old white man
King of the bang bang

Gimme strength to carry through
On the promise that I made to you
That I won’t give my holy land
To the old white man
King of the bang bang
