Face To Face – I'm Trying lyrics

Four-year-old at play
Shot and killed today
Never even had a chance
Seventeen and high
Threw away his life
Has a gun to feel like he's a man
Can't have it any other way

Laying in the street
Asking for a drink
Doesn't have a place to live
Pregnant at thirteen
Still can hear the screams
Something that she never will forget
Can't have it any other way

I'm trying to open my mind

So you can keep your faith
And I'll just walk away
There's no reason for me to stay

I'm trying to open my mind
I'm trying to make my mind
