War business

They say to me you can not run 
and you can not hide. If you run 
we will chase you, if you hide we 
will find you and kill you. 
Nobody cares about you, you're 
just black. If you go up we'll pull 
you down and kill you. If you 
hide underground we'll gas you 
and kill you. You are worthless, 
your skin is your sentence.
