Seventeen souls wake up like any other day 

Not knowing their lives were going to be taken away

Maybe if they had one more day 

They could had said "I love you family"

How long until we see bullets fly 

How long until we see parents cry 

How long will it take for you to open your eyes 

And see the importance of others' lives

We need to make a change before it's too late

Before we see another damage kid make a mistake. 

Seventeen souls under the Earth

"The right to bear arms" 

Should be buried in the dirt

Before we see another family get hurt 

We need to change the system  

So, more shootings don’t occur 

How long until we see bullets fly 

How long until we see parents cry 

How long will it take for you to open your eyes 

And see the importance of others' lives

We need to do something now 

Before we see more innocent lives' buried in the ground
