Too Many

"Too Many" by Siaria Shawn
(Lyrics only)


Too many of us,

Struck, down, in cold blood,

What did we do?

You don’t see in me, what you need to

Hook-

So where do I put my rage,

I wanna act out, give me a stage,

So I can use my voice, to voice the pain


One too many bullets, have left,

One too many guns,

And I can’t stomach another daughter or son,

On the ground

Hook-

So where do I put my rage,

I wanna act out, give me a stage,

So I can use my voice, to voice the pain


End-

And you should be ashamed(repeat)
