    Cowards looming over city streets

    Hiding in the shadows

    Attacking in packs like wild dogs

    Yet

    Alone

    They quake

    And shake

    Not knowing what to do

    Dealing meth

    Killing our own

    Genocide

    Of a nation

    But do they care

    Naw

    Trying to sell their wares

    Clueless to the fact that

    They are selling death

    To themselves

    And others who patronize

    Kids

    Caught in crossfire

    Of fools gone wild

    While the world watches

    How we kill our own

    No mercy

    No compassion

    And we who view tragedies in real time

    Ha become desensitized

    And have distanced ourselves

    From the violence

    That keeps eating away

    Like a cancer

    That will not die

    Will not die

    Will not die

    There is a cure

    Except we don’t really want it

    We are satisfied

    With the extinction of our world

    Remaining silent

    Not really afraid

    But condoning actions done by our own children

    Blood thicker than water

    Never mind the fact that the blood is contaminated

    The cancer prevails

    As we die
    Over and over again
