Guns

Guns don't kill

People kill

But we are guns

Put that gun on the table

Tell it to shoot

It won’t

But it does

Everyday it does

We are the gun

They're dead now

1,516,863

Dead

From that gun

By not controlling

We are telling the gun kill

We are the gun

1,516,863

Dead

Because America is home the guns

Instead of the brave

How can a child be brave

when watch their peers die

Because control is unneeded

We are the gun

We tell it “kill”

It does

And we reload it

And fire again

Because it's our ‘right’

1,516,863

Dead
