The Innocent Few

Cry for the victims
cry for the families
they are stranded in the shadows
they are hidden by the dark

In the eyes of the innocent
lies the story of the truth
they try to claw their way out
so their story can be told

Someday someone may listen
and release the souls
of the innocent few
