[Verse One: DJ DX]

when i was young
i use to chill outside
now a days you can't
because of homicides
teens are holding sixteen
they're ready to die
if biggie was here
he would shed a tear
and cry, mutiny
in my hood is like
Amistad, I cant
watch the news
cause it hurts
my eyes, instead
of killing each other
we should learn
to survive
look brothers and sisters
were written in time
martin took a bullet
then Kennedy died
Malcolm uplifted us
he was gifted and wise
in the streets its crimes
men don't obey the law
we use to fist fight
now guns are drawn
robberies going on
all night long
mothers screaming
on the phone
that they lost ed there son
hes laying
in the streets
call 911
EMT is to late he died
with blood in his lungs -

[Chorus One: Simeon Gold]

Stop the killing,
stop the shooting,
sowing the will of evil,
spilling the blood
of your own people yeah...
so rest in peace
in eternal silence,
stop the shooting,
stop the violence...
blood in the city,
blood in the town,
each day another youth
gets shot down..."

[Verse Two: DJ DX]

Before i thought
about a rhyme
or a line
i woke early
in the morning
to the read
the New York times
daily but really
this whole world
is getting scary
how many obituaries
and bodies
we gotta bury
I'm worried
and petrified
in this modern
day of time
Zimmerman
not guilty
but he
killed Treyvon
i keep writing
to GOD
but he wont respond
death after death
but I'm still declined
my mind
is growing older
my heart turned colder
death toll at 200
and it's not even October
hold ups in Atlanta
different colored
Bandannas
blacks shooting blacks
it's all caught
on the camera
but your local
rapper
is jumping out
of a phantom ?!
if dying young
is the answer
then death is cancer
my baby girl
is something like
princess Diana
she wants to grow up
and take trips
to Guyana -

[Chorus Two: Simeon Gold]

Stop the killing,
stop the shooting,
sowing the will of evil,
spilling the blood
of your own people yeah...
so rest in peace
in eternal silence,
stop the shooting,
stop the violence...
blood in the city,
blood in the town,
each day another youth
gets shot down..."

[Verse Three: DJ DX]

Look at the system
its built off of
drugs and prisons
mean while
there overseas
bombing Innocent children
what am i feeling?
dear lord please
take it away!
I've been through
so much
i got a lot to say!
O'Gs salute me
when I'm around the way
all the people
shot and killed
we pour alize
we still with you
we miss you
even tho
your gone
verse after verse
i keep your name
in these songs
first we lost
Hadiya then
we lost Treyvon
it was a federal
procedure
with the Boston bombs
but behind
close doors
congress passed a law
can somebody
please tell me
what am i leaving for?!
when my country
gives us guns
just to fight
there wars!!!
live by the gun
you shall die
by the sword
before
i came to this world
i had a talk
with the lord
i was sent here
to spread
a message
through my vocal cords

[Chorus Three: Simeon Gold]

Stop the killing,
stop the shooting,
sowing the will of evil,
spilling the blood
of your own people yeah...
so rest in peace
in eternal silence,
stop the shooting,
stop the violence...
blood in the city,
blood in the town,
each day another youth
gets shot down..."
