Vacant

Silent Night


Tonight is so hot and calm
As they walk and ache and shiver.
Some still drunk from the carnival.
Some still dead by a gunshot...
Violence.

A woman falls on the sidewalk
And stays like that for quite a while.
A policemean arrives to complain, but she's dead;
Her stomach glued to her back...
Hunger.

How many broken souls
And how many walking ghouls?
Angels will never see
What happens in the silent night.

A man got arrested.
He robbed a grocery store
And ran with all the food he could carry.
Was caught. Will never feed his child...
Misery.

A boy jumped from the 8th floor.
His friends got very sad.
His mother really loved him,
But in that state of drunkness he would never know.
(Anger)

How many broken souls
And how many sickning shows?
Angels will never see
What happens in the silent night.

Over 60 murders
Happening in two weekends.
Society locked up in jail.
Just in the meantime the killers are walking outside...
Fire and war.

If law is a fluke
And justice is blind, dumb and fake
What person am I?
No one belongs to this place.

If law is a fluke
And justice is blind, dumb and fake
What person am I?
I don't belong to this place.

How many brokens souls
And how many walking ghouls?
Angels will never see
What happens in the silent night.

How many brokens souls
And how many sickning shows?
When will this city see
The rotten things that happen all the time
not just in the silent night?
