A model cries
A rock star sings
A bloody video on YouTube
Much attention that it brings

After the rain has fallen
When the blood has washed away
Will we remember her tomorrow?
Will we remember the next day?

Will we remember her in ten years?
Will we remember her in five?
Will we remember even next year?
Will our voice still be alive?

For all the protests that were ended
And the rallies that were banned
The greatest danger to her memory
Is our short attention span

For all the sadness that we feel now
And the anger that we vent
The best way we can honor her
Is that we don’t forget
