The Kids Heard the Sound


The kids heard the sound
Looking all around
Suddenly blood on the ground

Time to make a change
She’s only seventeen
But I’m listening

Time to make a change
Her best friend died
She was buried today
Only sixteen

All the screams
Will last her time here
She’s not going anywhere

Listen to what they say
Because they were there
And will have to remember
