Can We Try?

when the walls come crumbling down

the masks get burned away

when barriers are broken off

and all the scars can fade

once the tears stop raining

and people stop faking

and the ground stops shaking

oncce the rules stop changing

when you can look me in the eyes

and stop the stupid lies

if you finally change your mind

if you ever realize

words are the bullets

your lips are the gun

your mind is the trigger

alwasy on the run

one shot can kill

can cause a secret thrill

hurting the ones who hurt you most

lowering the ones dropping you to your lowest

can we tear down the walls

end it all

kill the drama

kill the lies

the very least we could do is try
