"And they say we'll never see half as much
as they did. It's true that we never saw Vietnam
or World War Two. We didn't see our mother's cry
when John F. Kennedy died, but we've lived our
whole lives being told that we're just not good
enough. We've seen anorexia and bulimia because
skinny just isn't skinny enough. We saw Columbine
and watched the Twin Towers fall. We've seen a
lot of greed and even more hate. Our generation
fights a different kind of war but we've seen just
as much as them.. and maybe even more."

Little girl sitting on the porch,

Afraid and cold
Waiting for her daddy to come,

Afraid and cold
“What did I do wrong?” the girl asks herself, sitting alone,

Afraid and cold
“When will you come back?” she asks

Afraid and cold
It was the pull of a trigger which left the little girl

Afraid and cold
It was her daddy that left her to the tears rung down her face,
Afraid and cold
