Prevent This Tragedy

  • Here we are again with handguns for hearts
    They had a master plan, wanted to tear us apart
    Nothing to hold. I'll hope to lead it
    Our demise has been completed now
    Nowhere left to go but

    Down, the flames of hell they give me hope
    I drowned in oceans of this tragic part of
    Town, where nothing's heard for miles but the
    Sound of children wishing they were safely underground

    We are the walking burned, we hold this close to our arms
    We take our daily breath and thank our unlucky scars
    Tried to get by on bread and water
    Craving blood poured from the alter now
    Not much left to do but

    Drown in flames of miscommunication
    Down and out and often in search for someone
    Proud to translate what we truly dream
    About, as we lay in this bed thinking out loud

    ?
    In my broken telepathy
    For I'm left with nothing but this
    Bloodless river bank, West Memphis
    Please, may you start praying for me

    Down, the flames of hell they give me hope
    I drowned in oceans of this tragic part of
    Town, where nothing's heard for miles but the
    Sound of children wishing they were safely underground Writer/s: DANIEL MICHAEL ANDRIANO, DEREK R. GRANT, MATTHEW THOMAS SKIBA
