Innocence lost with the flash of a moment
Screams in the shadows of evil unleashed
Where does this madness awaken from
What is the world to do
Innocent victims, children, families
Left broken, wondering why
How can something so awful happen
In one moment... one flash
Terrifying our young
Their trust is gone
Innocence lost can't be undone.
Is there still hope in this evil madness
How do we provide a safe place for our children
People stop... think... love... don't hate.
Don't destroy, don't tarnish their innocence
With the battles you fight within your own soul
Leave our children to stay strong and bold
Not hidden in the shadows of evil
Terrified of dying... innocently crying
Make this world a place of comfort
A place of love
A place where our children feel safe.
