Another shooting, another song. This one is also an old song that I finally finished. I hope it moves you.

--Lucas-- 5/26/2022


I thought that I heard someone crying as I lay there trying to sleep
The world is such a wonder child, there's no need to weep, there's no need to weep

Remember the seasons that passed by too quickly
How snowflakes would melt on your tongue,
the leaves that you'd rake into piles and jump in,
and all the summer sun, yes all the summer sun

Remember the doorway you'd mark as you grew, saying sister I'm taller than you,
Remember the boots that we bought for the puddles that you loved to stop through, that you loved to stomp through

Remember the rainbows we'd spot after storms,
And the robins eggs, blue in their nest
The world is essentially good at its core
And all of us are blessed, yes all of us are blessed.

///// ///// ///// /////

Weep, weep, I've been lying all along
The world was once a wonder child, but now things have gone wrong, oh how things have gone wrong

Eric and Dylan and Payton and Salvador all were 18-year-old kids
We raised them on hatred and let them buy guns,
And/yet we wonder why they did, yes/still we wonder why they did WHAT THEY DID
Refrain even so I weep, even so I weep
