The Lyrics




Trayvon was just walking through the town
Minding his own business
Then along the way
He was gunned down just for "standing his ground"

Trayvon, Trayvon caused no trouble
Tried to look the other way
Spent his young life playing
We can't abide what happened that day

He was shot and wasn't even armed, on a winters day
When the Sanford cops said "That's okay"
And the beat goes on
Just another black kid blown away

And his name was Trayvon
And he was a good son
And his name was Trayvon
He was cut down by a coward's gun
And his name was Trayvon
And he was a good son
His name was Trayvon

Trayvon tried to fend off his assailant
A man of twice his size
Neighbors on their cell phones
Were the last to hear his pitiful cries

And Jesus, we only ask for justice
Don't leave Trayvon behind
Please make this the last time
It can't be for nothing that he died

He was shot and wasn't even armed, on a winters day
When the Sanford cops said "Thats okay"
And the beat goes on
Just another black kid blown away

And his name was Trayvon
And he was a good son
And his name was Trayvon
He was cut down by a coward's gun
And his name was Trayvon
And he was a good son
His name was Trayvon

A few facts you may have missed - March 26, 2012 - Report this comment
Trayvon had George Zim pinned to the ground Was punching Zimmie's face Witnesses said Zim screamed out for help Did Zim have no right to self defense?
What you missed - March 26, 2012 - Report this comment
[1]Zimmerman was Neighborhood Watch and had no authority to do anything but call the Police over a "suspicious person" (aka Black youth in a Hoodie) [2] The dispatcher told Zimmerman not to leave his vehicle and wait for Police- he did not and took a loaded firearm with him [3] CNN audio-enhanced tapes hear Zimmerman saying a racial slur [4] the cries for help came from Trayvon, not Zimmerman (as identified by his family) and [5] No pursuit, no altercation, no death. The poor Black youth was armed with a bag of Skittles against a 9mm pistol. Zimmerman caused the altercation and tried to illegally detain him. Trayvon was guilty of trying to go home and Zimmerman killed him for that. How is that justified??? YOU seem to be missing the facts!!!

Trayvon had been suspended from school fo five days and was nowhere near his home. CNN audio enhanced reveal that Zimmerman was saying the word "punk" not the racial slur "coon" (Reality check: how many people have used the word "coon" in the past fifty years). And yes, he may have been armed with a bag of Skittles, but he quickly cast it aside asan inneffective weapon and proceeded to use his fists, after which he proceeded to pound Zimmerman's head into the sidewalk. You can easily cause permanent brain damage doing that. As for certain Missing Facts, apparently you have more of them than the prosecutor reviewing the case who is calling it a "very difficult case" Maybe you should pass what you know on to him

Fact - if Zimmerman didn't have a gun then Trayvon would still be alive. You can easily cause permanent death with a gun. Reality Check: Zimmerman, who was armed with a loaded gun, was stalking an innocent teenager. "Trayvon had been suspended from school fo five days and was nowhere near his home." - and your point here is what? If you're nowhere near your home then you're fair game to be killed by some gun carrying wanna-be cop?
Anon - March 26, 2012 - Report this comment
None of this would have happened if GZ just stayed in his vehicle as ordered. But he pursued with a gun and caused the fight. As above says, the wannabe cop with no authority killed him for being Black and wearin' a hoodie. Is that justification for murder? Also anything outside of that day is irrelevent anyway. Trayvon had some candy on him. Zimmy had a loaded gun and was NW, not any PD Officer. Trayvon was murdered. Fact.

New story -- accd to a witness, Travyon actually attacked GZ. And my point here is that if you attack and threaten to cause serious bodily harm to someone then you might get shot in self defense, so don't give me this "are you fair game to be killed just because you were suspended from school" crap. And who knows just how innocent Travyon is, anyhow? You don't have any facts to support whether he is innocent or guilty. The person who does, namely the prosecutor handling the case, says it will be a very difficult case to win. So again, why are you all talking about this case as if it is cut and dried. Do you all know something the prosecutor doesn't?
@Call - March 27, 2012 - Report this comment
Nice spin, but no way. Zim is the pursuer and aggressor with a gun. A witness for the family says that Tray called her and said that someone was pursuing HIM. He was scared and so would anyone. Your witness remains Anonymous and said he saw the end of the fight- so how can you know who started it and who hit who or grabbed who first? Zim stated that he pursued and questioned him, which he had no authority to do as some Neighborhood watch thug with a gun. And that Help call has been claimed by family and a witness as Tray's not Zim's! Also the racial slur on CNN was 3-syllable F'n coon, not punk- 1 syllable. So Call, follow your own advice- do YOU know something? Were YOU there? No way! Tray was killed in cold blood, the Sheriff resigned over incompetence in the investigation, and Zim is in hiding. He had the gun, so he can claim anything. But at the trial all that counts is that the dispatcher told him not to pursue and he did. Zim caused that fight or whatever scuffle and ultimately- Tray's death. The boy was young and 140 lbs being pursued by an armed man playing wannabe cop. He's now in hiding and the Black Panthers as well as his family are justified in calling for his immediate arrest for murder.

Fact Again: If Zimmerman doesn't have a gun then Trayvin is still alive. Reality Check Again: A wannabe cop with a loaded gun stalks an INNOCENT teenager, UNARMED, BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK and because the wanna-be cop didnt think the teen belonged in "his" neighborhood. I ask you again (crap): If you are nowhere near your home, are you fair game to be stalked and MURDERED by some wannabe cop? Unbelievable.
Right On Robert J!!! - March 27, 2012 - Report this comment
NO PURSUIT + NO FIGHT= NO DEATH!!! Thanks Robert J. for your logic. Trayvon was MURDERED by George Zimmerman! Straight up!!!
SgtZim - March 27, 2012 - Report this comment
So all you Trayvon fans, when you see someone in your neighborhood who could be a threat, you would all run inside and lock your doors and hope for the best? I'm sorry the kid got killed, but if you are physically outclassed, you absolutely are in danger of death or permanent disability. Lethal force is completely legal and moral if it prevents your death or anothers. All of you that are making the worst assumptions about either one of these men should really wait a while until all of the facts are in.

Zimmerman was 50 lbs heavier than Trayvon. And let's clear up this myth about deadly force - you may only use deadly force if you are threatened by deadly force. If Zimmerman doesnt have a gun then Trayvon is alive today. And now the violent past of zimmerman and his arressts are coming out along with coverups by his retired judge father. He should have never been granted a permit to carry a gun. No gun, no murder of an innocent teen - end of story.

Well so much for that ". . . and proceeded to use his fists, after which he proceeded to pound Zimmerman's head into the sidewalk" and "if you attack and threaten to cause serious bodily harm to someone then you might get shot in self defense" crap, huh cell? The guy heals in minutes, huh? It's very clear that Zimmerman is a vigilante and there's some major cover up going on here.

Looks like the "Friends of Zimmerman" are also in hiding - must be because of all these facts, assumptions and reality checks.
Anon - March 30, 2012 - Report this comment
Are you aware that George Zimmerman has appeared in court on seperate cases of domestic violence against his partner & assaulting a police officer? Seems like he has a history of violence related offenses!!!

Could the reluctance to prosecute him over this shooting have anything to do with the fact that his father is retired Virginia Supreme Court Magistrate Robert Zimmerman?

Right Anon - give me the pot-smoking grafitti artist over the violent gun-carrying wanna-be cop any day - I know that the pot smoker is non violent. This idiot should never have been granted a gun permit - Florida's lax gun laws are also at fault.

Well, RJ I was going to leave this alone, but now that you've talked sh*t about how our silence somehow indicates that I have nothing to say ... This grainy video you speak, which BTW was illegally leaked to the press, proves nothing. You can't prove that the guys nose wasn't broken by this video. And noone claims there was a deep significant gash in the back of GZ's head, only that it was bleeding at the time the cops got there. I think it's also significant that the video stops when GZ goes into another room. Was there more video that actually did show clearly that GZ's nose was broken which was edited out. Seems to me they did the same thing in the Rodney King video, where they only showed the beating, but didn't show Rodney King lunging at a cop's weapon, which perfectly explains why the cops had to do what they did. And I'm banking on the fact that the same thing happened here.

I will also re-iterate that after 35 days and two weeks of intense outside pressure, the County Attorney of Seminole County still hasn't filed a charge for "MANSLAUGHTER" which is the only charge that fits. Wanna know why? Because nothing in the actual police report or witness testimony contradicts the theory that GZ acted in self defense. Some of these facts that many of you claim "Prove" that GZ is a murderer are not in the police report at all, ie. that GZ stalked and confronted Trayvon after the dispatcher told him not to. The report says he told the dispatcher he was following Trayvon and the dispatcher said that wasn't necessary. Then there was aminute of silence. There there was testimony that Trayvon attacked GZ There is nothing that indicates that GZ continued to follow Trayvon after the dispatcher said that wasn't necessary. So that "fact" is being made up. As is the insinuation that the County Prosecutor's office in Seminole County is covering up the story out of racist bias against Trayvon. Really? Lawyers, are generally much more liberal than the community at large and 49% of the voters here voted for Obama. And as for Robert Zimmerman being a former magistrate -- that is a minor judicial position that doesn't rise to the level of a judge forma; that's another red herringl

Thanks, Robert -- seeing as how my "fantasy" of ABC editing the police video to suit their preconceived story has now been vindicated by the release of more tape which cast doubts on everything -- I think I will "go with it"

Has anyone considered that even if Trayvon attacked Zimmerman he was doing so under the "stand your ground" ruling. Surely a young black kid being followed by a larger white man with a gun felt mortally threatened.
Robert J. Pagliaro - April 01, 2012 - Report this comment
Well Call it's thinking like yours that got Trayvon killed. Again - FACT: NO STALKING, NO STOPPING, NO LOADED GUN = NO DEATH. Because let's face it -- There was NO REASON for an INNOCENT teen to die walking home from the store.
