Last day of the rest of my life 
I wish I wouldíve known 
Cause I didnít kiss my mama goodbye 

I didnít tell her that I loved her and how much I cared
Or thank my pops for all the talks 
And all the wisdom he shared 

Unaware, I just did what I always do 
Everyday, the same routine 
Before I skate off to school 

But who knew that this day wasnít like the rest 
Instead of taking a test 
I took two to the chest 

Call me blind, but I didnít see it coming 
Everybody was running 
But I couldnít hear nothing 

Except gun blasts, it happened so fast 
I donít really know this kid 
Even though I sit by him in class 

Maybe this kid was reaching out for love 
Or maybe for a moment 
He forgot who he was 
Or maybe this kid just wanted to be hugged 
Whatever it was 
I know itís because 

We are, We are, the youth of the nation 

Little Suzy, she was only twelve 
She was given the world 
With every chance to excel 

Hang with the boys and hear the stories they tell 
She might act kind of proud 
But no respect for herself 

She finds love in all the wrong places 
The same situations 
Just different faces 

Changed up her pace since her daddy left her 
Too bad he never told her 
She deserved much better 

Johnny boy always played the fool 
He broke all the rules 
So you would think he was cool 

He was never really one of the guys 
No matter how hard he tried 
Often thought of suicide 

Itís kind of hard when you ainít got no friends 
He put his life to an end 
They might remember him then 

You cross the line and thereís no turning back 
Told the world how he felt 
With the sound of a gat 


Whoís to blame for the lives that tragedies claim 
No matter what you say 
It donít take away the pain 

That I feel inside, Iím tired of all the lies 
Donít nobody know why 
Itís the blind leading the blind 

I guess thatís the way the story goes 
Will it ever make sense 
Somebodyís got to know 

Thereís got to be more to life than this 
Thereís got to be more to everything 
I thought exists
