Rise Against - Make It Stop (September's Children)

i'm not usually listen to the other band for no reason except i'm bored and got nothing to do..
name few famous band or singer and some of them i dont even recall or even know they're exist coz i really hate to give them a chance...
take Justin Bieber for instance, ppl worldwide know him but the reason  know him is quite a year later after i accidently watch his MV in Hitz.TV with Rascall Flats in a songs called "That Should Be Me" and i was like so this is Bieber? i know Rascall Flats but never heard of Bieber and worse my bro goes like "u never heard of Baby?" and i goes like "I thought it's another BSB wannabe"
seriously sometimes i think i live in my own world... i dont even watch Glee coz idk why... maybe i hate musical? but if i say i just live in my own world that could be terribly lie coz there's peoples live there too but not so many... i mean my own clan..
okay, this morning i watch Oprah Winfrey Show and it's about kids getting bullied in school in US... well basically they cant stand that (the bullies) anymore and decided to commit suicide and i think that is not fair...
yeah i know some place in my beloved Malaysia have that issues (that have been reported) but what if the one we didnt know? i mean who stand up for them? i have a friend who use to be the victim and i think she's lucky, she got strength to stand against them and somehow she finished high school at the same place she got bullied... some bully cases so big that ppl notice that but some dont go physical, they goes mental torture like name calling and so on which i think affect the victim more...
well then i found this song that actually dedicated to the victim and i think this song is one hell of the song...sounds pretty wicked too... and since i barely moved to listen to the other band coz i'm afraid they might not suit me, i think this band really done a great job but i havent checked out their other songs... btw the band is kindda famous (outside my world)

Rise Against - Make It Stop (September's Children)

Woah, woah.

Bang bang go the coffin nails, like a breath exhaled,
Been gone forever.
It seems just like yesterday, how did I miss the red flags raised?
Think back to the days we laughed.
We braved these bitter storms together.
Brought to his knees he cried,
But on his feet he died.

What God would damn a heart?
And what God drove us apart?

What God could make it stop?
Let this end.
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge.
It's come to this,
A weightless step.
On the way down singing,
Woah, woah.

Bang bang from the closet walls,
The schoolhouse halls,
The shotgun's loaded.
Push me and I'll push back.
I'm done asking, I demand.

From a nation under God,
I feel it's love like a cattle prod.
Born free, but still they hate.
Born me, no I can't change.

It's always darkest just before the dawn.
So stay awake with me, let's prove them wrong.

Make it stop.
Let this end,
Eighteen years pushed to the ledge.
It's come to this,
A weightless step.
On the way down singing,
Woah, woah.

The cold river washed him away,
But how could we forget.
Gathering the candles, but not their tongues.

And too much blood has flown from the wrists,
Of the children shamed for those they chose to kiss.
Who will rise to stop the blood?

We're calling for,
Insisting on, a different beat, yeah.
A brand new song.

Whoa, whoa [x3]
(Tyler Clementi, age 18.
Billy Lucas, age 15.
Harrison Chase Brown, age 15
Cody J. Barker, age 17
Seth Walsh, age 13.)

Make it stop,
Let this end.
This life chose me, I'm not lost in sin.
But proud I stand of who I am,
I plan to go on living.

Make it stop, 
let this end,
all these years pushed to the ledge,
but proud I stand, of who I am, 
I plan to go on living
