When Will It End? (RPM Challenge)

Get Flash to see this player.

This is one of my "finished" tracks for this year's RPM challenge. It's also the one I most recently wrote. Came up with the lyrics trying to avoid the news on the TV screens at the gym this week. Came home and recorded the parts in about an hour or so so everything is pretty much the first take.

The words speak for themselves. Sadly.

When Will It End?

©2018 Joseph Gurner


I can’t watch the news today
Another tale of blood and rage
Children gone before their time
And once again nothing’s done

When will enough be enough Am/G
And the Memories of the dead won’t haunt us Em/Am
Blood in school halls Am
And parents in tears G
When will enough be enough Em/Am

I wish I could scream by I just cry
Watching so many die
When will it end
Oh please just let it end
Wish I could scream but I just cry

When will it end
When will it end
I hope for the day
it will end (it finally ends)

When will enough be enough
I hope for the day
we’ve had enough

Great job calling out a national shame, Joe. From o/s it just seems so wrong that an 18 y.o. can go and buy an assault rifle but they aren't considered "adult" enough to buy a beer. Crazy stuff. You have captured the moral outrage many feel perfectly. Thanks.

Raw Emotion
Well, from the general reaction to the most recent school shooting in Florida I'm afraid the answer remains "Not Now." Apparently, not enough kids have died yet to turn the stomach of every concerned American in order to embrace change.

Sometimes one take is all that is needed to pour out raw emotion. In fact, there's no need to refine it. A song like this should be painful.

Great work!
I concur with your expressed sentiments. Really enjoy the raw approach to the music. Reminiscent of Crazy Horse.

Be well friend!
