Lyrics & music by Lee Shapiro
Album:
Politics, Protests and Ponderings


A plea to stop the gun violence, bombings and wars around the world. Hatred, religious and cultural bigotry, power and money drive the violence and divide us all. And divided we shall fall...
SHOTS-FIRED-AT-PEDESTRIANS-IN-CLARKSDALE
Every single day
in every corner of this world
Hatred, Violence, Killing
in the name of our Lord

It's gone too far
It's gone on for too long
Deep jagged scars
by those who've done us wrong

Dear God! The sky rains with blood
While we argue with each other on what needs to be done
Dear God! There's no reason for it all
fighting in your name and divided we all fall

Another day
more bullets find the flesh
and all that we can say
is we're sorry and God bless !

Don't deny
that guns serve just one cause
then we all cry
that our freedom will be lost

How much more
of the children, and the wives
can we ignore
the excuses and the lies

Lay down,
lay down all your guns
or lay down
the bodies of your daughters and your sons

My God, you ask us for our love
but the hate we have doesn't come from heaven up above
My God, will you answer our call
but if we cannot hear you, then divided we all fall

Dear God, help us grow beyond
our lust for blood, for guns and bullets and all of those bombs
Dear God, we're still so young and small
stumbling blindly backwards and divided we all fall


Shooting in our schools,
shooting at our work,
shooting anything that moves,
see it live on the news network

Shooting by our cops,
shooting by our sick,
shooting that never stops
'cause we keep ignoring it.

Dear God! The sky rains with blood
while we argue with each other on what needs to be done
Dear God! There's no reason for it all
fighting in your name and divided we all fall

My God, you ask us for our love
but the hate we have doesn't come from heaven up above
My God will you answer our call,
but if we cannot hear you, then divided we all fall
