Lost Ones


Its crazy how mothers and fathers

Bury their children now days

One day they conceive em

And then their fading away

Out of your life

And out of your way

Got police knocking

At your door

Saying your child

Has fallen astray

Taken and locked away

Shot up

And put on display

Put under the ground

And just left there to lie

You cry

You pray

But the pain just stays

Cuz now you have to say

Rest in peace
