Fight The Fade – Lost lyrics

[Spoken intro:]
(Abc news report:)
New reports about the casualties in that shooting at the sandy hook elementary school in newtown, connecticut. I want to go straight to abc's pierre thomas... state and federal sources that unfortunately, more than a dozen people have been shot and killed at that school and that number includes children...

And she had stayed in the conference room... the principal and other people got shot... when they went out into the hallway and she was the one who called 911...

And were there families there who don't know where their children are? yes, yes, there are still parents here who do not know where their children are.

[Verse 1:]
I turned on the news today
Every channel says the same thing:
A tragedy has taken lives
And innocence away

[Pre-chorus:]
And tell me it's a dream
There's no way this can be true
I can't believe what my eyes have seen
Someone give me the truth

[Chorus:]
Oh god, gives us these
Answers that we desperately seek
If we are the ones you love,
Why have we lost so much

(Us president: as a country we have been through this too many times)

[Verse 2]
This world is so cold and cruel
How can we expect to make it through
There are shootings in our schools
And evil has no rule

[Pre-Chorus:]

[Chorus:]

[Bridge]
We want more than the
Soothings of a politician's tongue
We can no longer put our fear
In the hands of a man with a gun

(Us president: we're going to have come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this, regardless of the politics)

[Background chorus:]
We will rise
From the ashes we will rise
We will rise
From the ashes we will rise
[Foreground lyrics]
(We want) more than silver tongues
(We want) it's tragedies undone
(We want) this battle to be won
(We want) justice for our sons

[Chorus:]

We will rise
From the ashes we will rise (we have lost so much)
We will rise
From the ashes we will rise (we have lost too much)
