So right now in South Africa where I've spent some of my life they're doing this thing called the "Truth and Reconciliation Trials." Where they're asking people to come forward and say all the nasty shit that they did. And uhh.. and then they're going to forgive 'em which has got to be one of the most kind things that those people could ever do for anybody. If I were them I'd probably would have chopped somebody's head off... chopped my head off. So this is a song that's kinda like that, it's kind of about that a little bit but kinda obscure like most obscure things I write.

don't burn the pig
throw him in the water again
see if he sink or swim
find out if he's innocent
don't burn the pig

oh so don't burn the pig
oh strip him of his evil ways
wash him in the water again
don't burn the pig

well take the gun hide it
take the chains and buildings
take the walls and break down
i smash the monument in
but don't burn the pig
don't burn the pig

will they sink or swim
will they sink or swim
will they sink or swim
will they sink or swim
the question
will we share the water with them
don't burn don't burn the pig
just steal his helmet
take away the bullets and let him play
but don't burn the pig
[scatting]
