The Good Ones Die Young


The good ones die young.
From gun-slanging and gangbanging.
The good ones die young.
From hate crimes that are just as popular as facetime.
The good ones die young.
From racial groups and America's beloved troops.
The good ones die young.
The good ones die young.
Why do the good ones die young?
You don't understand what greatness they would've brung!
The good ones die young.
You should grab a child and look them in the eyes.
Just ask yourself why does the young ones die.
Ask that child what he or she wants to be.
I'm pretty sure its not going to be six feet deep.
The good ones die young.
An eight year old with a smile so bright might die tonight.
The good ones die young.
A sixteen year old boy just earned a perfect score on the S.A.T.s
and he could be killed tomorrow because he wore the wrong "Tee".
The good ones die young.
The good ones die young.
Why do the good ones die young?
They say the kids are the future.
So why do the good ones die young?
