Project Grand Slam recorded the song “Tree Of Life” immediately following the senseless mass shooting at Pittsburgh's Tree Of Life synagogue in the fall of 2018. After yet another senseless shooting in a San Diego synagogue in April 2019, exactly 6 months to the day from the Pittsburgh massacre, along with so many other mass shootings, there is still no end to the gun violence that plagues our country.

Robert Miller, the leader and bassist for Project Grand Slam, who wrote the song says: "It’s a spare, haunting, powerful song that expresses my horror and revulsion at the gun violence that continues to affect our country. Our politicians have done nothing. As my song says, “we must find a better way – today."

The song is sung by Ziarra Washington, and features Baden Goyo on piano.

Lyrics
I wonder how and I keep asking why
We live in fear and we hide
It's tearing us up and we cannot survive
We must have peace in our time

All this hurt and pain
We can't let it happen again
We must find a better way - today

Why are there guns everywhere in our land?
Fired with hate and surprise
It's tearing us up and we cannot survive
We must be safe in our time

All this hurt and pain
We can't let it happen again
We must find a better way - today
