lyrics

how many bodies down?

22 left above the ground

and I can’t see what sense this killing makes


been trapped behind those doors

no one knows what, why or for

but we know we’re sick of living with this pain 


she screams, why cant you just let me be 

she’s sick of living with this hate

and after all of this, what’s left to be afraid of


keep it inside, there’s no where to hide

that’s where it lies, just waiting to be free

keep it inside, there’s no where to hide

bet you thought you’d never see, this monster inside of me


how many bodies down? 30 more left above the ground 
and I can’ t see what sense this killing makes


how many lies were told

your silver tongue has taken hold

and there’s no way to cover up this mess you’ve made


he screams, where’s God when all that we see

is death upon our streets

and after all of this, what’s left to be afraid of
