The song’s theme is the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921, as told from the perspective of a resident who shelters a black family during the massacre.
“They were cold and desolate, I saw them bathe in blood, bathe in blood blishers. Nowhere to go, I gave them bread and sheets to rest. Praying on their beds.”
