13 SECONDS 67 SHOTS© 2010 music/lyrics Jeff Powers (May 4th)


From the Victory Bell
Over Blanket Hill
No one closer than a football field
But close enough to hell

From the Victory Bell
Over Blanket Hill
No one over 20 years old
But old enough to kill

13 seconds 67 shots
At 12:24 P.M.
13 seconds 67 shots
4 students laying dead

[Inter]

From the Victory Bell
Over Blanket Hill
No one closer than a football field
But close enough to shell

From the Victory Bell
Over Blanket Hill
No one over 20 years old
But old enough to kill

13 seconds 67 shots
At 12:24 P.M.
13 seconds 67 shots
4 students laying dead

[Inter]

La La La La La…

From the Victory Bell
Over Blanket Hill
No one over 20 years old
But old enough to kill

13 seconds 67 shots
At 12:24 P.M.
13 seconds 67 shots
4 students laying dead [Is lady Justice]
4 students laying dead [Blindfold or blind?]
4 students laying dead [Waitin' for the truth]
4 students laying dead [Who ordered "FIRE"?]
4 students laying dead [How many more years?]
4 students laying dead [To hide a lie in a little truth]
4 students laying dead [How many more tears shed?]
4 students laying dead [Till a brave soul comes forth]
