"Lower The Flag"

[Verse 1]
Word just came from upstate, Joe
Lower the flag again
This time, it's Dayton, southwest Ohio
Last night, El Paso, Texas counted 22 dead

[Verse 2]
Soon, the brass will offer up their thoughts and prayers
Soon, there'll be protests in the street
And the media from out of town will chew it up and spit it out
And move on to the next one before we even grieve
Yeah, they'll move on to the next one before we even grieve

[Chorus]
Some say we start to die on the day that we're born
But no one wants to live life on their knees
Maybe we start to die on the day that we're born
But we deserve to live life in-between

[Verse 3]
A husband kissed the cross that bears his Margie's name
And promises he'll see her once again
Won't see her children grow, won't see their love grow old
Last night, their dream became a nightmare and their nightmare has no end
Last night, their dream became a nightmare and their nightmare has no end

[Chorus]
Some say we start to die on the day that we're born
But no one wants to live life on their knees
Maybe we start to die on the day that we're born
But we deserve to live life in-between

[Verse 4]
These days, it's hard to sleep when I lay my head down
What if it was your loved one layin' on the ground?
I'm left to think about, "What if, what now?"
Dear God, I wanna pray, but tonight, I have my doubts
When I think about those families now

[Bridge]
If there's somethin' we can talk about, let's talk about it
If there's somethin' we can figure out, let's figure it out
If there's somethin' we can talk about, let's talk about it
If there's somethin' we can figure out, let's figure it out

[Chorus]
Some say we start to die on the day that we're born
But no one wants to live life on their knees
Maybe we start to die on the day that we're born
You believe what you want to believe
But we deserve to live life in-between

[Outro]
Word just came from upstate, Joe
Lower the flag again
