   Bang! Bang! Bang!

Every day somebody gets shot,

Because of stupid things.

Kids can't even go outside,

because a life by violence will decide.

Walking down the street at night,

Will always cause a fright in life.

But, don't worry about it,

because all the violence may wash away.

Sometimes I sit and wonder every night

before I go to sleep,

If this world will ever change and will I ever see.

There's so much craziness happening all around me.

But, I hope before this violence kills both you and me,

That we can start to make these changes.

We got to make these changes inside our lives,

And then we have to start to care and realize.

We can make good things happen if we really try.

Do the right thing,

Stay out of trouble on the streets.
