Crushing metal
Smashing glass
Screams of terror
Screams of fright
The smell of iron in the air
Rent apart ten thousand tears
Vision dark and scene obscured
The child walks an endless night
Crying to his hearts content
He falls into oblivion
Havoc wreaked and lives torn
Death awaits a broken mass
A child walks a thousand halls
Waiting for who will never come
He sits at night upon his sheets
Praying for the lives he lost
Parents gone with not a word
But the shots of a gun fired
He walks at night all alone
Enveloped by the loss of love
Two shots and two lives lost
