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
