You say it’s normal
You say it’s just
How can you say that, when a life is lost?

You say he committed a crime
You say he should be punished
How can you say that, when a life is lost?

You he should die
You say the whole world should watch
How can you say that, when a life is lost?

You say what he did was in human
You say what he did is inexcusable
How can you say that, when a life is lost?

You say he is a killer
You say killers must be killed
How can you say that, when a life is lost?

But I say
He killed my son
He killed our son
He deserves death
But his family does not deserve death
They deserve to see him live
To see him grow old
To see him marry
But they do not deserve to see him die

I say
Let him live
Let him live
With the burden of his sin

You say no
You scream
You shout
You try to change me
But I am not dissuade

You cry
You sob
I cry, but I stay strong

You say he killed our son
I say you are right
You say you can not live like this any longer
And you leave
Never to be seen again

I cry
I sob
But I stay strong
