“Jena” lyrics:

An all white jury hides the executioner’s face

Is this how we are, me and you?

Everyone needs to know their place

And here we thought this blackbird was hidden in the flue

Oh oh oh Jena

Oh oh oh Jena

Oh oh oh Jena

Take your nooses down

So what becomes of boys that cannot think straight

Particularly those with paper bag skin

Yes sir no sir wipe that smile off your face

We’ve got our rules here and you’ve got to fit in

Oh oh oh Jena

Oh oh oh Jena

Oh oh oh Jena

Take your nooses down

Hey some way sanity will prevail

But no one knows when that day will come

A shot in the dark, well it might find its way

To the hearts of those who hold the keys to kingdom come

Oh oh oh Jena

Oh oh oh Jena

Oh oh oh Jena

Take your nooses down

Oh oh oh Jena

Oh oh oh Jena

Oh oh oh Jena

Take your nooses down
