The sound of rain, the roar of thunder
Makes me think, and makes me wonder
While I’m sheltered inside a house
How many are there left in chaos

Not far away children are running
Mothers crying, fathers dying
Not due to rain or from thunder
No, it is not caused by a fire

Somewhere not that far away
The earth has shaken, skies have fallen
Waves are climbing higher and higher
Is it us or is it from under?

I try to look the other way
Then I hear the sound of gunfire
Not in a war, and not on TV
It has happened in a school not far

There is murder, and injustice
There are thieves and their many lies
It’s so hard to recognize them
When they are dressed in such disguise
