lyrics

They evince the innocence of a child!

But these children they’re not innocent.
They have blood on their hands.
Stained by their peers,
Pushed in corners hidden away.
Any chance to fight but they keep running away
Because that’s all that they've ever been taught to do.

When you put a gun in a child’s hand,

They ask for answers in the form of shards of shrapnel in our backs.
They pick out the pieces and replace them with excuses they never lack.
But when these children become leaders and our parents coincide,
We’re left with no shoulder to cry on or confide.

We are the children they left behind!

To search for a truth beyond subliminal bliss,
We learn from cautious acts of treason, something is amiss.
Response begets further response,
Shunned for trying to wrought what is right.

When you put a gun in a child’s hand,

They ask for answers in the form of shards of shrapnel in our backs.
They pick out the pieces and replace them with excuses they never lack.
But when these children become leaders and our parents coincide,
We’re left with no shoulder to cry on or confide.


When the gun is in no one’s hands

We’ll answer questions in the form of open arms and outstretched minds
We’ll form solutions that will stand the tests of time
And when were parents and our children need a place to run and hide
We’ll provide them with a shoulder to cry on and confide

And no one will be left behind
