Bullets Have No Name

Bullets have no name

All you have to do is be in frame

Be in the vicinity and you may get hit

 

But some legislators don't give a damn

What will it take to put measures in order

I thought they were supportive of law and order

 

Law and Order doesn't apply to all

Just as long as you grew up in the right country club

People who live lavishly think they are protected

 

Bullets have no name

You or your loved one might be in frame

That is when you'll consider legislation

 

People are shot by wannabe snipers

It is time to provide education and jobs

It is time to stop these street snipers

 

They hold down the streets

Because that's the only thing they can do to eat

While legislators ignore the bullets that roam

 

When bullets hit kids

When bullets hit women and men

When bullets hit people... legislators do not care

 

But let it be the family's cherished cat or dog

Oh no they will cry

It's is time for gun control

 

One victim to a stray bullet should be enough

As bullets have no name

And anyone or anything can be within frame
