People Are Killing People
A rewrite of the Depeche Mode song People Are People
People are killing people
I don't know how this can be
Everyday in the news so bloody
Race wars among different colors
Anger between different creeds
It seems no one wants
To share the same peaceful needs
It's obvious to me
Something here is horribly wrong
I don't know about you
But I really think something should be done
I can't understand
What makes a man kill another man
Help me understand
Help me understand
Now every day they're shooting and blaming
And it's so heart breaking to me
I'm praying for some common human deceney
So far it has't surfaced
I wonder
Does it even exsist?
Tell me, son
How can we take that gun from your fist?
I can't understand
What makes a man kill another man
Help me understand
2018 Ramona Thompson
