They can take your freedom away. You could be walking to school, and what happened back then could happen to you. - Mary Vecchio
tin soldiers and nixon's coming
we're finally on our own
this summer i hear
the drumming
four dead in ohio
gotta get down to it
soldiers are cutting us down
"should have been done
long ago"
what if you knew her and
found her dead on the ground
how can you run
when you know
tin soldiers and nixon's coming
we're finally on our own
this summer i hear
the drumming
four dead in ohio,
four dead in ohio
how many,
how many more
why, why...
