Sometimes the most powerful thing you can say.. is nothing at all.
Shhh, do you hear that, the sound of silence?
A crowd united, forms an alliance.
What's your reason, behind the defiance?
Kill a man, because of no compliance?

An innocent life, destroyed by hate.
Too many victims, for it to be fate.
Another sleepless night, for someone's mate.
He didn't have a gun, well, it's too late.
Guess he won't ever make, his dinner date.

Here we are again, another protest.
The killings, are becoming more grotesque.
Only thing they say is, I tried my best.
A slap on the wrist, now go home to rest.
Our judicial system, I detest.
So you wear a badge, I am not impressed.
