    Another young life was taken today
    how many do the make since Monday
    five and it is only Thursday
    I want to cry, but can't do it now

    Ashes to ashes
    Dust to dust
    The crime of the century
    US against US

    As I look into the other young eyes
    and hear the Mothers screaming
    Oh Lord why
    My heart grows heavy,
    I look to the sky
    I want to cry, but can't do it now

    Children can't come out to play
    Hide in the house day after day
    Keeping low from the bullets that stray
    Hearing the cries, hearing them pray

    I want to cry, but can't do it now

    Nighttime in the city
    Sirens in the air
    Ambulance racing
    down my street
    sitting in the dark
    Looking out the window
    Now I Cry

    We must survive
    Stop this taking of our lives
    This US against US crime

    Hey Blue,

    WOW!! This is a very deep flow!! Is is a very sad troubling reality. I hope and pray one day this type of senseless violence will be no more.
