Blue and Numb

Someone walks into a school and pulls a gun.
Everyone is panicking, children don’t know where to run.
In the list of school shootings, count one.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10.
Multiply that by ten, over and over again.

We need them to take action.
We demand satisfaction.
But they sit on their asses,
And they still remain passive
To the deaths of our students, the lives that we’ve lost.
Haven’t we suffered the ultimate cost?
Stand up and fight for some stricter gun laws.

They are blue.
Cold as ice, they are numb.
You wonder why they don’t do
Anything, cause they’re not at the end of a gun.
They call us cry babies
Cause we want safety.
And as long as I live,
Don’t ever let me become
So blue and numb.

Fast forward - 2020 -
There’s been more school shootings then you could dream.
Except it’s not a dream,
It’s a nightmare.
Every student everywhere is scared.

Our graduates have become survivors.
Our students have become the fighters.
Every time I watch the news
I hear about the lives we didn’t have to lose.
It’s so easy to pretend you care.
All you give is your thoughts and your prayers.

Have you sat in school?
Up against a wall, pressed into a dark corner.
Silently going through the list of your friends.
Trying to remember what classrooms they’re in.
Have you prayed that you’re safe?
That you’ll see the end of the day.
That you’ll make it out alive.
Have you sat in a place where you’re supposed to be learning and thought to yourself "oh my god am I going to die?"

We need them to take action.
We demand satisfaction.
But they sit on their asses,
And they still remain passive
To the deaths of our students, the lives that we’ve lost.
Haven’t we suffered the ultimate cost?
Stand up and fight for some stricter gun laws.

They are blue.
Cold as ice, they are numb.
You wonder why they don’t do
Anything, cause they’re not at the end of a gun.
They call us cry babies
Cause we want safety.
And as long as I live,
Don’t ever let me become
So blue and numb.
