The Lyrics

in the darkness came a scream,
had a nightmare for a dream
saw a bad guy slowly creeping
to a house where someone's sleeping
subdivisions, where the crime rate is way too high
people die
amid the sounds of violence

a restless man now has a gun
thinks it makes him a big one
now he says yeah I'm a big man
but his brain is like a canned ham
and the guys he stabbed
are now memories from the night
it just ain't right
this is the sounds of violence

red and blue lights come upon
another life that's dead and gone
never seems to be a witness
took my lip and tightly bit it
as they asked me questions such as who did I see down there?
but C;'m scared
this is the sounds of violence

fools, he says, they'll go away,
then your kids can safely play
hear the words these folk are filthy
help us make the baddies guilty
and parolees will wear electronic tights
every night
this ends the sounds of violence
