Make it stop - lyrics

„Bang, bang!“ go the coffin nails
Like a breath exhaled
Then gone forever
It seems like just yesterday
How did I miss the red flags raise?
Think back to the days we laughed
We braved these bitter storms together
Brought to his knees he cried
But on his feet he died

What God would damn a heart?
And what God drove us apart?
What God could

Make it stop
Let this end
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge
It's come to this
A weightless step
On the way down singing ….

„Bang, bang!“ from the closet walls
The schoolhouse halls
The shotguns loaded
Push me and I'll push back
I'm done asking "I demand?"
From a nation under God
I feel it's love like a cattle prod

Born free - but still they hate
Bore me - no I can't change
It's always darkest just before the dawn
So stay awake with me
Let's prove them wrong

Make it stop
Let this end
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge
It's come to this
A weightless step
On the way down singing

The cold river washed him away
But how could we forget?
The gatherings hold candles
But not their tongues
Too much blood has flown from the wrist
Of the children shamed for those they chose to kiss
Who will rise to stop the blood

We're calling for
Insisting on
A different beat
A brand new song

(Tyler Clementi, age 18)

A brand new song

(Billy Lucas, age 15,
Harrison Chase Brown, age 15,
Cody J. Barker, age 17,
Seth Walsh, age 13)


Make it stop
Let this end
This life chose me , I'm not lost in sin
But proud I stand of who I am
I plan to go on living

Make it stop
Let this end
Of this years pushed to the ledge
But proud I stand of who I am
I plan to go on living
