"Make It Stop (September's Children)" Lyrics

Rise Against

(Woah, woah)

Bang bang go the coffin nails
Like a breath exhaled
Then gone forever
It seems like just yesterday
How did I miss the red flags raise?
Think back, the days we left
We braved these bitter storms together
But brought to his knees he cried
But on his feet he died

What God would damn a heart?
And what God drove us apart?
What God could

Make it stop
Let this end
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge
It's come to this
A weightless step
On the way down singing
(Woah, woah)

Bang bang from the closet walls
The schoolhouse halls
The shotgun's loaded
Push me and I'll push back
I'm done asking, I demand
From a nation under God
I feel its love like a cattle prod
I'm born free, but still they hate (Born free)
I'm born me, no, I can't change (Born me)

It's always darkest just before the dawn
So stay awake with me
Let's prove them wrong

Make it stop
Let this end
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge
It's come to this
A weightless step
On the way down singing
(Woah, woah)

The cold river washed him away
But how could we forget?
The gatherings hold candles
But not their tongues
And too much blood has flown from the wrist
Of the children shamed for those they chose to kiss
Who will rise to stop the blood
We're coming for, insisting on, a different beat, yeah
A brand new song

(Spoken by Tim)
Tyler Clementi, age eighteen
Billy Lucas, age fifteen
Harrison Chase Brown, age fifteen
Cody J Barker, age seventeen
Seth Walsh, age thirteen

Make it stop
Make this end
This life chose me, I'm not lost in sin
And proud I stand of who I am
I plan to go on living
Make it stop
Let this end
All these years pushed to the ledge
But proud I stand of who I am
I plan to go on living
