Sixty pieces of lead you think that black man in Akron is deadly dead?
Sixty pieces of lead you think one of them bullets hit his head?
Sixty pieces of lead isn’t Akron where King LeBron once laid his head?
Sixty pieces of lead when did Akron, Ohio become the Blackman’s Mississippi?
Sixty pieces of lead when did bullets replace nooses on trees?
Sixty pieces of lead, you think we’re scared? Tread lightly policemen because humanity’s dead… all because you felt it appropriate to kill that Blackman with sixty pieces of lead.
