Alicia Keys Addresses Police Brutality in Protest Song
‘Perfect Way to Die’
Alicia Keys details the story of a grieving mother whose child was murdered in new song, “Perfect Way to Die.” Co-Written and produced by Keys and Sebastian Kole, the song chronicles the unjust killings of innocent lives and discusses the uprising against police brutality and systemic racism.
The ballad opens on an average day that quickly turns violent. “Simple walk to the corner store/Mama never thought she would be/Getting a call from the coroner, she sings. “Said her sons been gunned down/Been gunned down.” As the story unfolds, it alludes to the deaths of Michael Brown and Sandra Bland and the protests that followed and continue.
“Another dream lost/Another king and queen lost,” she sings. “Another broken promise/They refuse to make right/Oh another night to live in fear/Oh another night that you’re not here/Another reason to get out there and fight.”
