about

Trayvon Martin's tragic death and the subsequent further grief of our entire nation when his murderer was not punished has touched everyone's heart. Trayvon was every American child of color. Racism was the cause. This fine young boy was an A Student and went to church every Sunday. This murder of an unarmed, innocent child has allied the people of our nation behind the cause of justice. Ocean felt drawn to write this song to honor Trayvon's memory and to ask everyone to sign the petition here: front.moveon.org/sign-the-petition-open-a-civil-rights-case-against-george-zimmerman/#.UeN2BxxdjPw

lyrics

Song for Trayvon Martin
by Ocean, c.2013


I was innocent
I was a child
Never did wrong
Never run wild

i thought i lived
In the land of the free
That's what i believed
I's what they told me

Now i lie
Underground
My Mommy and Daddy
And all around

Are grieving me
And my life lost
Because my nation
Didn't find the cost
Ot justice
Of right and wrong


So sing a song
In my name
Trayvon Martin
Let it ring

Let it sound
Fill your soul
Call for justice
And gun control

Remember me
In every face
Of a young boy
Of any race

I deserved a long life
Not this fate
Not this fate
Pray in my name
Pray in my name

Call for civil justice
Call it in my name
Call for equal rights
And all to be the same


Call out to the nation
Call out in my name
Call for everybody
To be the same
be the same

be the same


all be the same
we're all the same
in God we're all the same
all the same
the same
the same
in His name
