lyrics

St Louis, Missouri
Three brothers playing games
One looks through his father’s drawers
A fatal mistake

Parents startled to the sound of bang
Rushed up, saw one son on the ground
Another with a gun in his hand
He thought it was a toy

Wake up America
Ban the gun
How much longer can this go on?
This senseless killing
Ban the gun
It’s time to right this wrong

Down in Parkland Florida
High school in a safe town
Torn apart by a young man
Angry with the world he shot 17 down

The classroom’s now quiet
Mourning the innocent
They all saw it coming
History repeats

Wake up America
Ban the gun
How much longer can this go on?
This senseless killing
Ban the gun
It’s time to right this wrong

500,000 young voices unite
Marching and roaring in rage
500,000 young voices unite
Marching in hope for a change

500,000 young voices unite
Marching and roaring in rage
500,000 young voices unite
Marching in hope for a change

Wake up America
Ban the gun
How much longer can this go on?
This senseless killing
Ban the gun
It’s time to right this wrong

Wake up America
Ban the gun
How much longer can this go on?

Wake up America
(Ban the gun)

Wake up America
(Ban the gun)

Wake up America
(Ban the gun)
It’s time to right this wrong
