Trailer Song: Nina Simone: Why (The King of Love Is Dead)

Lyrics

Once upon this planet earth
Lived a man of humble birth
Preaching love and freedom for his fellow man

He was dreaming of a day
Peace would come to earth to stay
And he spread this message all across the land

Turn the other cheek he’d plead
Love thy neighbor was his creed
Pain humiliation death, he did not dread

With his Bible at his side
From his foes he did not hide
It’s hard to think that this great man is dead

Will the murders never cease
Are thy men or are they beasts?
What do they ever hope, ever hope to gain?

Will my country fall, stand or fall?
Is it too late for us all?
And did Martin Luther King just die in vain?

Cos he’d seen the mountain top
And he knew he could not stop
Always living with the threat of death ahead

Folks you’d better stop and think
Cos we’re heading for the brink
What will happen now that he is dead?

He was for equality
For all people you and me
Full of love and good will, hate was not his way

He was not a violent man
Tell me folks if you can
Just why, why was he shot down the other day?

Well see he’d seen, the mountain top
And he knew he could not stop
Always living with the threat of death ahead

Folks you’d better stop and think and feel again
For we’re heading for the brink
What’s gonna happen now that the king of love is dead?
