There is gunfire
On the street, dear
Come on inside
It's not safe here
They are coming
Hide your daughters
Pray to something
To stop this slaughter

And now there's violence
In the houses
Who can scream out
The loudest?
This is sick and
It's twisted
Don't blink, dear
You'll miss it

Such a cruel way
To end it
What can we do
To mend this?
The town has
Been raped and
The world is

And the innocence
Is too much
To bear
I cannot see your face
I can't suffer your stare
The bitterness
Is too much
To take
I cannot keep together
And I'm sure that I will break
