    Another boy shot tonight
    I can't believe what I am seeing
    A body bag, a mother cries
    It seems like this is never ending
    I've had enough so I decide
    The time has come for me to face it
    I can't refuse the war inside

    'Cause we have had enough
    All the violence has touched every part of our lives
    Our innocence is gone tonight

    I don't know if I can hide it
    I know the truth it's only lies
    The president will deny it
    The body count, a steady rise
    In my head there is a riot
    Change the world, no one dies
    The time has come for us to fight it
    You can't refuse the war inside

    'Cause we have had enough
    All the violence has touched every part of our lives
    Our innocence is gone tonight

    'Cause we have had enough
    All the violence has touched every part of our lives
    Our innocence is gone tonight

    I know that you can change the future
    I know that we can make it happen

    In my head there is a riot
    And I don't think that I can fight it

    'Cause we have had enough
    All the violence has touched every part of our lives
    Our innocence is gone tonight

    'Cause we have had enough
    All the violence has touched every part of our lives
    Our innocence is gone tonight

    We have had enough
    We have had enough
    We have had enough Writer/s: JACOBY SHADDIX, JERRY HORTON, TOBIN ESPERANCE
