We're not allowed to talk about that yet 3x
so hold your breath

It happened again
somebody went and fell apart and they took the innocent
Nobody wins, 'cause no one's fighting just one person with themself
Too many kids, too many nightmares started for the ones he didn't get

It don't make no sense
They say he got to be prepared, got to be on the defense
The cops are afraid, they gonna shoot the people down,
they don't want to be outplayed

A gun doesn't make you happy, a gun doesn't make you safe
A gun won't save your marriage, a gun won't make you brave
I see you Miss America it don't have to be this way
Just get some new politicians that don't work for the NRA!

Thoughts and prayers, but they don't care 'cause they won't do anything
What can we do? He claims he's a hunter but he's hunting me and you
We're not allowed to talk about that yet so hold your breath

*I will be more than happy to donate this song for use by a/any gun-reform non-profit that wants to use it for fundraising efforts.*
