A baby’s born, a mother bleeds
New life begins, the infant feeds
Eternal love is born this day
Only to grow, to fade away
The years pass, the mother sighs
A teenage boy, no longer cries
Stripped of emotion by those they trust
Gangland warfare turns their blood to rust
No more tears, no more sorrow
Live for today and not tomorrow
Not a care for others lives
Worship guns, die by knives
Mindless violence, driven by greed
Wings pinned down, cannot be freed
Corrupted angels, commit the mortal sin
Streets have no winners, let the game begin
There are no rules, live by the gun
What happened to the child? And to the fun?
The mother weeps, the vultures feed
Her baby boy, begins to bleed
A senseless death, immortal pain
Upon the streets, another slain
So politicians hear our plead
No longer can we watch our children bleed
Take this pain and end our sorrow
We strive towards a new tomorrow
