secrets......................................
41 shots, and we''ll take that RIDE
''Cross this bloody river to the other side
41 shots, cut through the NIGHT
You''re kneeling over his body in the vestibule
PRAYING for his life

Well, is it a gun, is it a knife
Is it a wallet, this is your life
It ain''t no secret (it ain''t no secret)
No secret my friend
You can get killed just for living in your American skin


41 shots, Lena gets her son ready for school
She says " On these streets, WICKEDNESS rules
You''ve got to understand the rules
If an officer stops you, promise me you''ll always be polite
And that you''ll never ever run away
Promise Mama you''ll keep your hands in sight" 

Well, is it a gun, is it a knife
Is it a wallet, this is your life
It ain''t no secret (it ain''t no secret)
No secret my friend
You can get KILLED just for living in your WESTERN SKIN skin


Is it a gun, is it a knife
Is it in your heart, is it in your eyes
It ain''t no secret (it ain''t no secret)
It ain''t no SECRET (it ain''t no secret)

41 shots, and we''ll take that ride
''Cross this bloody river to the other side
41 shots, I got my boots caked in this mud
Baptized in these waters (we''re baptized in these waters)
And in each other''s BLOOD (and in each other''s blood)

Well, is it a gun, is it a knife
Is it a wallet, this is your life
It ain''t no secret (IT AINT NO SECRET)
It ain''t no secret (IT AINT NO SECRET)
No secret MY FRIEND
You can get killed just for living in
You can get killed just for living in your American skin

The words to a bad pop song, perhaps ? Sounds like the sort of self-pitying apologia of a rioter, someone who feel permanently entitled to act violently ?
