The Pulse Stops

As you listen to the pulse of the music

You can hear the fight for equality

A place of our own

A safe haven

Invaded by such hatred

The immorality 

To end mortality 

The pulse of the music stops

Hearts drop

A hatred so strong

A family torn by hate

We weep for our brothers, our sisters, and mothers

We stand together united

Stronger than ever
