Breaking Black

red black red black

BLACK BLACK

move ‘em back

security patrol prayerfully

forced to their knees

and a stated emergency

that nobody sees

crimson Shinawatras

demanding a change

equality, justice

not within range

red black red black

BLACK BLACK

move ‘em back

the gods cannot comfort

Ratchaparasong

gunfire grenade sounds

devotion gone wrong

bullets of rubber

gas made for tears

violence emerges

awakening the fears

red black red black

BLACK BLACK

move ‘em back

flags over Thailand

red, white and blue

red shirts are coming

and getting their due

the color of blood

in the city of life

poured onto the streets

death stench filled strife

red black red black

BLACK BLACK

move ‘em back

will the global community

choose to mourn or ignore

what they can’t understand

nor knocking at their door

all roads to the Phen Fah

are paved with the lie

of empty, cold promises

of a ruler yet to die.

red black red black

BLACK BLACK

move ‘em back

widespread disparities

between rich and the poor

the uprising of red shirts

remain silent no more

the color of blood shed

for the black or the red

lives that are lost

arise now the dead

red black red black

BLACK BLACK

move ‘em back
