(spoken)
Bells, Siren swell, morphing into church bells, signaling another unjustifiable death

(sung)
You took my love away, from me
I want to know, how did it feel to watch him tremble and bleed?
Tell me, what gives you the right to kill, so senselessly (and)
When you're alone, do you ever think of him, or pray for his peace? 
But when I dream
I see a world
Fearless and hopeful
Where his life matters

(spoken)
Loudly, Languishing ladies sing (Loudly), 
Church bells ring (Loudly), bullets blurring (Loudly), 
Deferring dreams like it ain't no thing, (Proudly).  
Another brother slain in vain in the name of justice,
Though really it feels more like just them. 
It seems we've only been a friend to the system 
That one time our juice contained a little shot of Johnny. 
Beyond the stars and stripes and prison bars and stereotypes, blues lives splatter red on Canvas' of brown skin as if Black Lives Matter is a game to them and not a basic right Within, all men are created equal. 
Say her name hashtags validate what shiny badges boldly violate. 
Siren swell morphing into church bells, signaling another unjustifiable death and yet Another mother left childless. 

(sung)
You took my love away from me
I want to know, how did it feel to watch her tremble and bleed?
Tell me, what gave you the right to kill, so senselessly?
When you're alone, do you ever think of us? Or pray for our peace

But when I sleep
I dream a world 
Fearless and hopeful
Where my life matters
Now, when I dream
(spoken)
Dreams defer with each bullet blur
(sung)
I see him
(spoken)
And all we see are memories of what it used to be
(sung)
Smiling and laughing (together)
(spoken)
If laughter be the medicine of an aching heart, then may each trickling tear tickle 
(sung)
Feels like he's with me
(spoken)
And each tremble sooth the sorrow in my soul when I hear those sirens swell 
(sung)
And then
(spoken)
Morph into 
Bells

(spoken)
Loudly, Languishing ladies sing (Loudly), 
Church bells ring (Loudly), bullets blurring (Loudly), 
Deferring dreams like it ain't no thing, (Proudly).  
Bells, siren swell morphing into church bells, 
Signaling another unjustifiable death
