Massacre

This song was created for Game of Bands round 204 : "Boss Battle"

Lyrics:

(Verse 1)

Growing up was a scary fight
Pressure of society ain't light
Our blood keeps getting spilled
And they keep on wiping it up

Pretending that it's all behind us now
Pretending history's on their side now

I feel there's chains on my destiny
Society telling me, who I can't be
The massacre on the pages, we're being erased
Until it's all blanks and all gone

(Pre-chorus)

It's hard to keep it in, make sure I don't explode
Minorities standing up, that ending's been foretold
I feel a war's upon me, I'll stand up and I'll fight
They'll never see me coming, they never do

(Short Chorus)
So I scream out the names of who they murdered
I climb the rooftops and I make sure they're heard
We're standing for the oppressed
Shouting til our final breath
(I know that you would me like better if I was dead)

Frustrating can't describe
What it's like to take the jibes
Retaliation never gets to be on your mind

Hearing them say it's our "own kind" somehow
Justice is blind, and things are fine, right now

Everyday, I hope that I find a way
To finally make a lasting change
In case I get killed and my story must end
And they smear my name like it's my fault

(Pre-Chorus)
It's hard to keep it in, make sure I don't explode
Minorities standing up, that ending's been foretold
I feel a war's upon me, I'll stand up and I'll fight
They'll never see me coming, they never do what's right

(Long Chorus)
So I scream out the names of who they murdered
I climb the rooftops and make sure that they're heard
We're standing for the oppressed
Shouting til our final breath
(I know that you'd like me much better if I was dead)

And while they try to push down further
All raise your flags, we're taking a stand
They'll see I can't be ignored
Come prepared, there's so much more
(Don't think you're ready for what's ahead)

Silent bridge

(Chorus)
So I scream out the names of who they murdered
I'm climbing rooftops making sure that they're heard
The revolution's abound
It's roaring proud and it's loud
(Just wait, you haven't seen the last of me yet)
[Exit]
