[00:03.91]His family moved from Denver to Aurora
[00:08.91]Mama thought they'd be safer out there
[00:13.41]Away from all the hubbub of the city
[00:18.41]Closer to the mountains and fresh air
[00:22.66]Some kids are into fancy cars and football
[00:27.41]Or getting lots of tattoos on their shin
[00:33.16]Elijah played the violin
[00:39.16]Some kids are into hamburgers and hot dogs
[00:44.41]Other kids just do things their own way
[00:49.16]Elijah was a vegetarian
[00:53.66]And on his lunch breaks he would go and play
[00:58.66]Music for the animals at the shelter
[01:03.16]The staff would welcome their young comrade with a grin
[01:09.16]Elijah played the violin
[01:15.16]As a young man Elijah moved in with his cousin
[01:20.16]He became a massage therapist
[01:25.16]He had a kind and open hand
[01:30.16]While others only knew the fist
[01:34.16]Such as the men in blue who were called out one night
[01:39.66]To assault their unknown kin
[01:44.16]Elijah played the violin
[01:50.41]They slammed him into the wall, they threw him to the ground
[01:54.91]Although he made no effort to fight back
[01:59.66]They choked him til he vomited, and then they did it more
[02:04.16]No body cams recorded the attack
[02:08.66]Elijah said he couldn't breathe, he was begging for his life
[02:14.66]So they shot him full of ketamine
[02:19.16]Elijah played the violin
[02:24.91]He went into cardiac arrest
[02:27.91]Soon after
[02:28.91]He was dead
[02:30.41]He had not committed one offense
[02:34.66]Aside from being Black in these Dis-United States
[02:39.41]And trying to exist in the present tense
[02:43.66]Nothing happened to the cops, they were just following procedures
[02:48.66]Killing people for the color of their skin
[02:54.16]Elijah played the violin
