Track Name: Loss of Life
it's getting to be a privilege
to die from natural causes
times are getting common
that bring these frantic pauses

and while you're waiting to hear
from someone who got trapped
within a moment when
humanity it snapped

if we cried for the loss of life
the way that we cried for guns
we'd grieve so much
we'd never hurt anyone

put humanity over politics
it's not about your rights
it's whether or not your loved ones
make it home tonight
Track Name: Headlines
written in the headlines
the boldest words to read
no matter what they spell
there's fear for them to feed

to convince the reader
they have so much to lose
convincing just continues
in the form of news

the plot begins to thicken
with nothing but repeated
empty rhetoric
until hope is depleted
Track Name: Issues
nothing is different
everything's the same
tabs on all of us
they don't just know your name

to live your life
should mean more than exist
it's no wonder
it's easy to resist

these are the same issues
that i grew to read
we're born to lose
this system's greed

the workplace is a coffin
war is just a grave
society has caved
into becoming a slave

we the people
the bill of rights
might as well say
that you can die tonight
