V1-Another day, another headline.
Another school, more children have died.
Just one more, like the last.
Just one more, they come too fast.
Thoughts and prayer, don't mean a thing.
Thoughts and prayers, won't lead to change.
Thoughts and prayers-its just a game.
V2-Another day, but the story's the same.
Another school, a new list of names.
More victims to demonize,
same narrative cloaked in lies, their lies…
BR-Thoughts for the children who want to live,
And prayers that they forgive
all the ways we've let them down;
And pray, pray for change . . .
to the laws that keep us safe;
to the people we elect;
to the hearts of those who lead;
to the companies that make us bleed.
