    Last day of
    The rest of my life
    I wish I would've known
    'Cause I didn't
    Kiss my mama goodbye
    I didn't tell her
    That I loved her
    And how much I care
    Or thank my pops
    For all the talks
    And all the wisdom
    He shared

    I just did
    What I always do
    The same routine
    Before I skate
    Off to school

    But who knew
    That this day
    Wasn't like the rest
    Instead of taking a test
    I took two to the chest

    Call me blind
    But I didn't see it coming
    Everybody was running
    But I couldn't hear nothing

    Except gun blasts
    It happened so fast
    I don't really
    Know this kid
    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 it's 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

    It's kind of hard when
    You ain't got no friends
    He put his life to an end
    They might remember him then

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

    Repeat chorus

    Who's to blame
    For the lives
    That tragedies claim?
    No matter what you say
    It don't take away the pain

    That I feel inside
    I'm tired of all the lies
    Don't nobody know why
    It's the blind
    Leading the blind

    I guess that's the
    Way the story goes
    Will it ever make sense
    Somebody's got to know

    There's got to be
    More to life than this
    There's got to be
    More to everything
    I thought exists

    Repeat chorus
