about

A reinterpretation of the classic song Can The Circle Be Unbroken, a reflection and response to the constant cycle of gun violence we are experiencing in modern day america.

lyrics

I was standing by the window
On one warm and sunny day
When I heard the news cast rolling
Ten more lives were taken away

Can the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There's a better way of living
Where we don’t cry lord we don’t cry

Lord, I saw the undertaker
Busier than you should know
And he took my little brother
Long before his time to go

Can the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There's a better way of living
Where we don’t cry lord we don’t cry

I followed close behind them
Tried to stand up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
As they dug another grave

Can the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There's a better way of living
Where we don’t cry lord we don’t cry

Thoughts and prayers lord sure are lovely
But they cannot tell me why
no action has been taken
How many more must die

Can the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There's a better way of living
Where we don’t cry lord we don’t cry

Can the circle be unbroken
Bye and bye, Lord, bye and bye
There's a better kind of freedom
Where we don’t die lord we don’t die
