Rainy Night In Florida

RAINY NIGHT IN FLORIDA (J Neo Marvin-Davis Jones)

There’s a whole lot invested
In the building of a narrative
If you spin the right fable
It’s transparent but effective

Sit and watch, dreaming of badges
See a boy out walking
You can tell by his color
That he must be up to something

Zero in on your target
Never have to say you’re sorry
You can say anything
He won’t be there to tell the story

‘Cause you’ve got good connections
And the state sympathizes
Oh, they’ll go through the motions
But the outcome, it never surprises

It’s the trial of the victim
We can find out all about him
We’ll invent a real good reason
We’re all better off without him

On a rainy night in Florida
A young life’s blood is draining
Now some people are rejoicing
Other people are still waiting…

For justice
(whisper) Justice
Waiting for justice
(whisper) Justice
Waiting for justice
(whisper) Justice
Waiting for justice
(whisper) Justice
Waiting for justice
(whisper) Justice
Crying for justice
(whisper) Justice
Shouting for justice
(whisper) Justice
Screaming for justice
Justice.
