falls, I'm alone
Skin chilled to the bone
You turned and you ran
Slipped right from my hands
Tears on a river
Push on shove
Don't mean much
Joker on jack
Match on a fire
Cold on ice
A dead man's touch
Whisper on a scream
Doesn't mean a thing
Won't bring you back
Blue on black
Blind, now I
Truth, lies, and in between
Wrong can't be undone
Slipped from the tip of your tongue
Somewhere in the night
a child cries,
A woman weeps and someone dies.
Somewhere in the night, humanity hides.
Somewhere in the night , a soul screams,
As people fade and die, lost in dreams.
Somewhere in the night, reality lives.
Somewhere in the night loneliness dwells,
As people die, no sounding bells.
Somewhere in the night, she dies alone.
Somewhere in the night ...
Where is the light?
Oh Little Boy Black and Blue,
broken, bruised, and branded,
Fractured ribs, the punch has landed.
Battered, wounded, twisted legs,
"Let me go!" the victim begs.
Now doubled over, spitting teeth,
His mother screams, consumed with grief.
Show no mercy, fight to death,
Till a broken body's all that's left.
There's no reason, none at all,
To cause this high-aimed youth to fall.
"Help me! Help me!" He gasps and cries,
But knows they'll beat him till he dies.
Pathetic soul left all alone,
Bloody face, shattered bones.
The mother wails, "It's not his time!"
They will pay for this vicious crime.
With no regret, remorse, or sorrow,
The gang will strike again tomorrow.
Now roses lie upon the grave,
Cherished friend we could not save.
I would like to
grab you and shake you
