People are dying, people are crying
It’s not okay, these knives can’t stay
When people are excluded, knives are included
Trying to be seen, only way is to be mean
This isn’t alright, we need to stop the fights
Straight outta school, they think it’s so cool
Stabbing slashing, this shouldn’t be in fashion
The victim had no choice, you have to use your voice
Some people don’t care, let’s stop this nightmare
Using knives, ending lives
If actions don’t change, people will be slayed
Speak out loud, tell the crowd
Knives need to stop they need to go all we need to say is no
We should be fighting, why just stand there we could be uniting
