About the song
Arkansas' rush to execute eight men before one of the execution drugs, Midazolam, is set to expire and cannot be used.
Lyrics
8 men dyin', 8 men dyin', dyin' by a twisted law,
gonna kill’em down in Arkansas

Midazolam hides the pain of the poison in your vein
But the body still is feelin' all the horror that they’re dealin'
Asa says he cannot wait got an expiration date
Expedite extermination, before the date of expiration

8 men dyin', 8 men dyin', dyin' by a twisted law,
gonna kill’em down in Arkansas

Asa says these 8 should go, cause the bible tells him so
18 years Damian spent before they found him innocent
Jesus said, "Do unto others. Love your neighbors, sisters, brothers;
Does Asa care what Jesus said? Or does he like him better dead?

8 men dyin, 8 men dyin, dyin by a twisted law, gonna kill’em down in Arkansas

10 Commandments on the lawn, one of them has been redrawn,
Bein' Christian’s over rated when the expiration’s dated.
It don’t matter if they’ve changed, if the law has been arranged
We know who this law is for; persecution of the poor.

8 men dyin, 8 men dyin, dyin by a broken law,
Gonna kill’em down in Arkansas
8 men dyin, 8 men dyin, dyin by a broken law,
Cryin down in Arkansas

Did Moses climb the mountain top so the hearts of 8 could stop?
Commandment 6 is over rated, when the expiration's dated
8 men due for terminatin, cause a drug is expiratin
When you get to the Pearly gate, tell St Pete about that date.
