I am a prisoner waiting to escape.
I am a homeless man taking a vape.
I am a child crying in a crib.
I am a man that was stabbed in the rib.
I am the mother waiting for her child
Because he out late doing things that are wild.
I am that child staying out late,
Doing drugs with some girl named Kate.
I am the pilot preparing to crash
Hoping that his family can live off the cash.
I am the family mourning their loss
I am the wife just fired by her boss.
I am the criminal shooting up a school
When I was a kid I thought it was cool.
I am the teacher yelling take cover
I am the children crying with each other.

I am the first life, I am the first death.
I am everybody’s desperate last breath.
