lyrics

do you remember johnny peterson
the only black kid in our town
do you wonder why
his life ended in suicide?
maybe its just a coincidence
but do you wonder why
everyone around is so white?
do you think that's alright?
do you think it's only natural
all these places
with a native names
but no natives in sight
it's in the past, they say
nothing can be done anymore anyway

oh the culture in this town
is poisonous to everyone
it's unbearable to those
who couldn't fit in if they tried

do you wonder why
those white boys drove to that house in the woods
of mount vernon with a machete
murdered a woman and almost her daughter
its confusing right, cause these things don't happen here
murmurs about town blamed his mother
but maybe the problem is a little bit bigger

these atrocities happen in a vacuum they say
freak incidents
its just the freaks, it's just the freaks
don't look at me , it's just the freaks

oh the culture in this town
is poisonous to everyone
it's unbearable to those
who couldn't fit in if they tried
it's unlivable for those...
