"Civil" Rights

If we were tried by juries "of our peers."
we would all get treated with mercy
and get off more lightlly than we deserve.

Most of us will be tried by juries
whose members don't think they are our "peers."
We often get no mercy
and are given worse than we deserve.

So when i read scripture
that seperates sheep from goats.
i say baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Jurors may be goats who believe that they are sheep.
Defendents are sheep who believe that they are goats.
Only God knows which is which,
and he will not sit on my jury, being without "peer."
You've got to be taught
To hate and fear,
You've got to be taught
From year to year,
It's got to be drummed
In your dear little ear
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught to be afraid
Of people whose eyes are oddly made,
And people whose skin is a diff'rent shade,
You've got to be carefully taught.

You've got to be taught before it's too late,
Before you are six or seven or eight,
To hate all the people your relatives hate,
You've got to be carefully taught!
