I close my eyes and pray for this new normal to go away
Kindness and mercy I seek to preveil
Ever more elusive that wish seems
Every time I tune into the latest news
People just keep on dying and we get no closer to understanding
All so useless and without any good reason
It happens closer and closer together
There's nothing anyone seems willing to do to stop it
I wail in fear along with all the rest
Never knowing who or what might be coming next
God help us all!
This can't just keep dragging on
One way or another someone must speak out to end this maddness
How can we go on otherwise?
Every day fearing more of the worse to come
A nightmare that dreams endless on and on
Regardless of what we say or do to try and defeat it
The nightmare is all too real
Hell come to earth to feast upon the innocent
Eager madmad shooting and then shooting some more
Guns make more problems then ever they will solve
U must come to see that sooner rather than later
No weapon can be the salvation of mankind
Frankly, the truth is that it can only bring more death and despair
I am sick of that and pray you are all as well
Ready at last to ban these horrid demons from our lives once and for all
Eternal damnation and hellfire I fear we may all face....
IF WE DO NOT!
