Two years and extra days, a block away he’d head to hang
Same corner, neighborhood, his friends, the gang
Two years and extra days, a bigger kid would crack his eye
No real reason, explanation, everyday no one knew why

The bigger kid was crazy that made the gang afraid
When he told the gang to shut their mouths, the gang obeyed
You’ve got to have a place to be, you need a place to hang around
No one spoke, no one moved, no one made a sound

Both his eyes would twitch (no one spoke, no one moved)
The left one was always black (no one made a sound)
His lips they never moved (a sad silent situation)
They stayed still with each attack (now he’s not around)
His ears were always ringing (no one spoke, no one moved)
In his head he’d hear a hum (no one made a sound)
And all the kids on the corner (a sad silent situation)
Knew what it was from (now he’s not around)

Well then one day it happened, he took his daily crack
His eyes rolled up, like yesterday, he started falling back
The kids that watch this everyday, now watched him hit the ground
No one spoke, no one moved, no one made a sound
And no one made a sound

Both his eyes would twitch (no one spoke, no one moved)
The left one was always black (no one made a sound)
His lips they never moved (a sad silent situation)
They stayed still with each attack (now he’s not around)
His ears were always ringing (no one spoke, no one moved)
In his head he’d hear a hum (no one made a sound)
And all the kids on the corner (a sad silent situation)
Knew what it was from (now he’s not around)

No one spoke, no one move, no one made a sound
A sad silent situation, now he’s not around
No one spoke, no one moved, no one made a sound
A sad silent situation, now he’s not around

Well, no one spoke and no one moved and no one made a sound
A sad silent situation, he’s not, he’s not around
No one spoke, no one moved, no one made a sound (he’s not around!)
A sad silent situation, now he’s not around
