Small town, big city's 
All reflect shadows of
small and noble minds.
But beneath the shadows
lies a subculture of broken men
Living in Jim Crow minds, hiding in darkness.
 
Yielding up the darkness,
moving into shadows
 When, KKK with lynch law hemp clutched in hand
Boldly declare you’re not one of us 
 
You’re not from around here, 
Different colour, different face
don't belong, only looking for handouts
You’re not part of our race 
Forgetting in their Jim Crow minds that
there is only one race.
The human race
 
In small towns and big cities
the lynch laws prevail
 Deformed men walk in the shadows
They’ll destroy you, if you are different.
