Réalisation: P. Wauters / Production: Epimuzik 2019 ©

A mon grand-frère le journaliste Mumia Abu-Jamal. Et aussi à mon frère jumeau Roger Mc-Gowen et aussi à Troy Davis, et aussi aux 5 de Central Park, et aussi à Angela Davis, et aussi à Georges Stinney, Glenn Ford, Ricky Jackson…Et des milliers d’autres, encagés, lynchés, brûlés, abattus, empoisonnés, gazés, électrocutés au nom de la Justice.

Cette chanson ne fera pas partie de l’album Exile Radio prévu pour début 2020, mais d’un autre album en projet.

Lyrics:
I was strolling through the night
I heard the shooting, I saw the fight
I was the wrong guy in the right place
They took me up, efficiently
They took me up, efficiently

The judge declared I was guilty;
I couldn’t speak, I felt so weary
After the masquerade,
I heard the verdict
“Put him in jail efficiently”
“Put him in jail efficiently”

Many people out there were speaking their mind
But the governor stayed deaf and blind
He signed my death sentence,
Yes he did it efficiently

The man will put the needle in my vein
No electric chair, no visible pain,
He won’t heal me, he will kill me, efficiently,
He will do it, efficiently

I was strolling through the night
I heard the shooting, I saw the fight
I was the wrong guy in the right place
Dead and gone, efficiently
Dead and gone, efficiently

ooo – oo, ooo – oooo

Dead and gone, efficiently
