From Gunshots! Music by K.P. Dennis, Video by Jun Bae

c Saint Louis Story Stitchers, 2016

Secure ya legal weapon tell others to do the same!

Don’t carry nothing if it ain’t registered in your name!

Record the make, model, serial number information!

If it come up missing then you can find the location.

Call 911 whenever you hear some gunshots!

Tell the police if you witness a crime on your block!

If an organization improves life of the youth,

Donate or volunteer your time and give’em a boost!

Help a struggling parent…. Whose burdens weigh a ton!

Become a mentor “earn and learn” hire the young!

They say I am the one! I guess I’m on the list,

Clean up my neighborhood participate in ownership!…

Make it a model gotta look out for each other,

If we get to know our neighbors

we could fix it like sisters and brothers!

I can’t trust ya. How can we ever begin?

To build peace! I keep, losing my friends when they…

Non stop… gunshots!

Day light there’s gunshots!

Nighttime more gunshots!

Around the clock… the young drop!

Wave your hands high if you’re tired of hearing gunshots!
