9/11 + Fifteen

scan0300

You can run but you can’t hide
With terrorist threats far and wide

A night on the town, a trip to the mall
Who knows the next victims tragedy befalls

Fear is festering away inside
Slowly eating our souls alive

With each attack humanity dims
Creating for youth a future grim

How much more blood must be shed
Before we purge the streets of red?

The time has come to heed the call
Across all nations large and small

To come together at last as one
Proclaiming no more violence be done

Within lies love of such great power
All evil it can compel to cower

But as for now we’re along for the ride

For you can run but you can’t hide
From hearts wherein hate still resides
