 Become A Better Singer In Only 30 Days, With Easy Video Lessons!

Students rushing
cross school grounds
suspect fires
another dozen rounds

Children huddle
In barricades
reporters hurry
policemen wait

Duck and Cover
Shelter in Place
parents don't cross
the yellow tape 


Chorus:

Twenty-eight wounded 
Fourteen dead
our children's halls
are spilling red 

Twenty-eight wounded 
Fourteen dead
no safe places
only prayers instead 


Instrumental:


It's the immigrants
not the native sons
It's everything but the guns 

Open carry
closed off minds
It's only a
matter of time 

Come pry my guns 
from my cold dead hands
set one foot
on my daddy's land

Arm the teachers 
arm the nuns 
arm bartenders in the clubs 


Repeat Chorus:

Twenty-eight wounded 
Fourteen dead
our children's halls 
are spilling red 

Twenty-eight wounded 
Fourteen dead
no safe places
only prayers instead 


Bridge:

It's the access 
it's the guns 
why are we the only ones?

It's the access
it's the guns 
why are we the only ones?


Repeat Chorus:

Twenty-eight wounded 
Fourteen dead
our children's halls
are spilling red 

Twenty-eight wounded 
Fourteen dead
no safe places 
only prayers instead

    Great job on capturing the raw emotions and intense reality of the unfortunate school shootings in your lyrics for 'No Safe Places'. The words have a powerful impact and effectively convey the urgent need for action to address this pressing issue.

    To enhance the overall impact of the song, you could consider adding more specific details or anecdotes to personalize the experiences of the students and victims. This can help listeners connect on a deeper level and further amplify the message you are trying to convey. Additionally, incorporating a call to action or message of hope for the future could inspire listeners to take a stand and make a difference in preventing such tragedies.

    Overall, your lyrics are thought-provoking and relevant, shining a much-needed light on an important social issue. Keep up the great work and continue using your platform to advocate for change and promote a safer world for our children.
