Another Family Cries

All you hear is somebody died
So naturally, as if it’s a part of life
Last night, she lost that fight
Cancer wins as another family cries

As you live by, die by the knife
Inner-city prosperity with a violent side
Streets stained with teenage lives
Blood pours as another family cries
                      
Firefights light up the skyline
An orphan’s prayers are denied
As parents, search and never find
Echoes of war as another family cries

Lasting memories of violence
The sound of silence muffled by sirens
The defiant, beat by giants to comply
Tyranny as another family cries

Executions fed by religious lies
Scared to sever the insidious spine
That leads us to political divides
Butchered innocence, another family cries

All you hear is somebody died
So naturally, as if it’s a part of life
Last night, she lost that fight
Cancer wins as another family cries
