Nothing’s Changed, No Progress has been made

1776,this amendment was made 

 And we’re still paying the consequences today 

It’s 2019, and were at 340 bodies totalled up a day 

Can’t this gun war just go away 

 

We see it on the news, but this is all old

Coming home and seeing the stats grow 

The police waiting for more shots to unfold

Gun violence in the media is just a blow

 

“Suns out, guns out” thats the motto

Guns blazing,the street shaking

Beating the  bullet, is like winning the lotto 

Bullets  spraying, while the city  stay sleeping 

 

1776 this amendment was made

2019 there hasn’t been much change

Expecting background checks to keep us safe

Unable to acknowledge that no progress has been made

 

The Nations slowly bleeding, “All hail the land of the Free” 

Everyone says to let the second amendment be  

Ignorant to all the hurting 

Unable to understand all the mothers’ wailing.
