Must we always bleed
every time we say Enough?
Must the earth soak
the blood of the innocent
every time we stand for our right?

What was our crime ?
We came in peace
We sat in peace
We raised our flags
We sang our hearts

Words of freedom
the anthem that bound us in unity
Yet you let your riffles sing
Sing tunes of death
An ensemble of pain

We are young, angry
but we never antagonized
Our vocal cords the medium
Our voices the weapon
We took a stand.

You killed us for saying
“stop killing us”
A system that birth the future then
gulp her blood
Code 20102020
Will never be forgotten
