Lyrics

Terror in the neighborhood run boy run
Go tell your mama they found another gun
On a young school boy whose mother found religion
he?s on the honor roll for making good decisions
but why oh why did he shoot that man
If he can?t tell us maybe the gun can
Terror in the Neighborhood
When the Raven flies
Beyond the point of no return
From a young boys hands
who played his part
Is the lesson ever Learned
Crossing the valley in the shadow of the demon
a young boys swagger has everybody screaming
Once again the head lines gonna read
schoolyard victim of gun brutality
Guns and more Guns burn like a rocket
gonna send you to hell with that pistol in his pocket
Terror in the Neighborhood
when the Raven flies
Beyond the point of no return
From a young boys hands
who played his part
Is the lesson ever Learned
killing easy with violence so casual
Silent rage never to far from home
who do we blame for this violent society
one look in the mirror and you?ll surely know
Terror in the neighborhood listen up son
The sheep are in the fields and the shepherds got a gun
go tell your friends this message you?ve been given
the choice they make could seal their dreams and visions
why oh why did he shoot that man
If he can?t tell us maybe the gun can
