Streets taut with empty lines
Bullets clutter the sidewalk
The gun trembles in a young mans hand
The mother visits a grave site
They ask why we suffer
Oh God, please answer
Rivers run, mountains peak
We remain scared (we remain scared)
I try to remember
You and me together
Rivers run, mountains peak
We all remain scared
It's so abrupt
The life designed for us
(Reach out) It's so abrupt (it's there)
(Reach out) The life designed for us (it's there)
They ask why we suffer
Oh God, please answer
Rivers run, mountains peak
We remain scared (we remain scared)
The city mourns another loss, but we'll pray forever
Rivers run, mountains peak
I know you're there

    Anyone from Chicago knows the violence that runs rampant throughout the city. There are many young lives lost to the streets leaving behind broken homes and apparitions. In the end though there is still light in faith.
