lyrics

Mother, I can't talk today--somebody's shooting.
Mother, I can't talk today--somebody's shooting.
My words don't make a difference anyway.
Anyway.

Ain't we all lost a sister today--somebody's shooting.
Ain't we all lost a brother today--somebody's shooting.
Don't know how to say another goodbye anyway.
Anyway.

Everybody's talking at me, talking at me--somebody's shooting.
Everybody's talking at me, talking at me--somebody's shooting.
But I'm not allowed to speak my mind up anyway.
Anyway.

What the hell is wrong with us?
What the hell is wrong with us?

It's just tick, tick, tick, tick--somebody's shooting.
And it's just drip, drip, drip, drip, drip--somebody's shooting.
Talking about it is not enough anymore anyway.
Anyway.
Mother, I can't talk today. Mother, I can't talk today. Mother, I can't talk today.
