Lyrics

Hope Falls Again

Written By: Bryon Cherry

A young boy turned to run cuz there was blood on his hands
And a little girl with only seven years behind her she lay dead
And as the sad smoke did clear a young mother ran to her fear and held her daughter near and wept as she died

An illusion of grandeur caught the boys head
He faked the self-esteem he lacked with the gun in his hand
The illusion did fade and as he turned to run away all he could hear were his demons giving chase

chorus:
This is how the story goes in every ghetto, every year as the summer draws close, the madness posts another victory and hope falls again in agony

A society should be ashamed cuz there is blood on their hands
They see the battles hope is losing but still no helping hand
How many times must hope die?
Before they stand and do what is right and sacrifice of themselves to show the darkness light

cuz I swear

chorus:
This is how the story goes in every ghetto, every year as the summer draws close, the madness posts another victory and hope falls again in agony
