People of Boston

Because there is faith left in humanity
Heroes emerge when all seems lost
They serve to cure what plagues our minds
Even if hopelessness infects their hearts

Heroes emerge when all seems lost
To lift the lifeless bodies from the ground
Even if hopelessness infects their hearts
They hold the shrapnel in its place

To life the lifeless bodies from the ground
They choke back tears to bring forth justice
They hold the shrapnel in its place
To prevent the blood from spilling into the streets

They choke back tears to bring forth justice
As they calm the screaming, flailing crowd
To prevent the blood from spilling into the streets
They erase the chaos that plagues the city

As they calm the screaming, flailing crowd
They notice the broken hearts of families
They erase the chaos that plagues the city
Out of the respect of the dead

They notice the broken hearts of the families
With weeping parents and desperate siblings
Out of respect for the dead
They strive to put their minds at ease.

With weeping parents and desperate siblings
They put their lives at risk in selfless acts
They strive to put their minds at ease
As the city of the strong pulls together as one

They put their lives at risk in selfless acts
Within a matter of days it’s over
As the city of the strong pulls together as one
And begin to work towards a more peaceful world

Within a matter of days it’s over
They served to cure what plagued our minds
And begin to work towards a more peaceful world
Because there is faith left in humanity.
