Salem Ilese

Awake

Salem Ilese


Safety is a myth
Don't exist in a society
Where gunshots meet school bells

Every passing day
I hope and pray that there's a way
To put an end to this new hell

Your fingers are green
And there's blood on the scene
Do you feel bad, do you feel bad
Do you feel bad?

The candles are lit
And we're not gonna quit
Do you feel bad enough
To do something?

How many is enough?
How many gone, how many cuffed?
How many incidents of violence
Til you're awake?

How many does it take?
How many smiles can you break?
How many minutes of this silence
Til you're awake?
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Repeat a filthy lie, tell us why
This could never be the fault of a weapon
Tell it to the ones who lost a son
Who lost a daughter, in a damn millisecond

Your fingers are green
And there's blood on the scene
Do you feel bad, do you feel bad
Do you feel bad?

The candles are lit
And we're not gonna quit
Do you feel bad enough
To do something?

How many is enough?
How many gone, how many cuffed?
How many incidents of violence
Til you're awake?

How many does it take?
How many smiles can you break?
How many minutes of this silence
Til you're awake?
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh

Can't sleep through the sound
Of a trigger and a round
Can't sleep through the sound
Of seventeen, seventeen down
Oh, seventeen down

How many is enough?
How many gone, how many cuffed?
How many incidents of violence
Til you're awake?

How many does it take?
How many smiles can you break?
How many minutes of this silence
Til you're awake?
Ooh, ooh, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh
