Bang, Bang

A pleasant day, nice and sunny

 
Warm air in my cheeks
 
Warm air on the runners
 
running to see who can get there first
 
 
 
Bang
 
 
 
It's not sunny anymore
 
 
 
as cold as the world with no love
 
 
 
But not quite because people are here like there life is going to end
 
But they are screaming about the life of others
 
 
 
They start picking them up
 
Pulling them out
 
 
 
 
They care
 
We care
 
 
 
Blood, it's always darker then you think it will be
 
We know its true shade know
 
All around us
 
 
 
Bang
 
 
 
More
 
Please no more
 
 
 
We are trying together 
 
As one
 
 
 
264 Victims
 
No legs
 
No arms
 
More hope
 
 
 
We are hopefully together
 
As one
 
 
 
3 people aren't here anymore
 
We mourn them together
 
As one
 
 
 
They told us to stay inside
 
That dangerous men were on the lose
 
I didn't go to school that day
 
Just in my head on repeat
 
 
 
Bang Bang
 
 
 
She was a dancer
 
Graceful
 
Leaping in the air
 
 
 
She has no feet
 
Yet she dances on
 
 
 
They can't break her
 
 
 
They can't break us
 
 
 
Bang Bang
 
 
 
He had a perfect life
 
A amazing wife
 
A amazing house
 
 
 
He has no legs
 
 
 
He's a father now
 
He brings his child hope and love
 
 
 
They can't break him
 
 
 
They can't break us
 
 
 
I look at there faces when I walk through town
 
They are not alone
 
We will not be broken
 
 
 
We are still here
