Abolish the death penalty

Abolish the death penalty

The death penalty promotes killing
As an acceptable solution to a problem
The death penalty promotes murder
Abolish the death penalty
The death penalty is premeditated, state-sanctioned murder
The death penalty is cruel
Abolish the death penalty

Vengeance no more
Listen to your heart
No more cruelty
Abolish the death penalty
Vengeance no more
Listen to your heart
No more cruelty
Abolish the death penalty

Can you imagine how scared you'd be, you'd be
If you were going to receive the death penalty?
Can you imagine how scared you'd be, you'd be
If you were going to receive the death penalty?
Abolish the death penalty
It is a travesty of justice
Abolish the death penalty

Can you imagine sitting inside a cell
Waiting to be executed?
Waiting for the state to take your life?
Can you imagine how sad you'd be
Having to leave behind
Your parents
Your children
Your husband or wife?

The death penalty is sadistic
Instead of killing people, be altruistic
Do not hate, rehabilitate
Don't let the death penalty be someone's fate
Let's make a peaceful world; I am optimistic
Our approach to justice needs to be holistic
We need a world free from violence
We need unity, equality, justice for all

Vengeance no more
Listen to your heart
No more cruelty
Abolish the death penalty
Vengeance no more
Listen to your heart
No more cruelty
Abolish the death penalty

Can you imagine how scared you'd be, you'd be
If you were going to receive the death penalty?
Can you imagine how scared you'd be, you'd be
If you were going to receive the death penalty?
Abolish the death penalty
It is a travesty of justice
Abolish the death penalty
