about

Guns, ugh.

lyrics

White crosses and flowers out by the fence
Another random act of violence
Mothers cry for their daughters, cry for their sons
While others cry from the top of their lungs:
Don’t take our guns, ‘cause we’re the ones
Saving our own soil from a war
We’ve got the right to stand up and fight
If trouble comes a knockin’ at our door.

Leery of each other now on the job
Even a picture show can become a problem
And school days end with sighs of relief
We’ve dodged another day of grief...But
Don’t take our guns, ‘cause we’re the ones
Saving our own soil from a war
We’ve got the right to stand up and fight
If trouble comes a knockin’ at our door.
But trouble don’t knock, no trouble don’t knock
It doesn’t even give you time to cock your gun
and the damage is done.
White candles and flowers out on the lawn
A child of the Universe is gone, gone, gone
And the hearts that are broken by the dreadful fall
Cannot be heard over the call:
Don’t take our guns, ‘cause we’re the ones
Saving our own soil from a war
We’ve got the right to stand up and fight
If trouble comes a knockin’ at our door.
But trouble don’t knock, no trouble don’t knock
It doesn’t even give you time to cock your gun
and the damage is done.
Sweet tear-stained notes pinned on the fence
We scratch our heads and try to make sense
Of too many guns – too few controls
We’ve dug ourselves into a hole.
With too many guns – no self control
We’ve dug ourselves into a hole...

But don’t take our guns, ‘cause we’re the ones
Saving our own soil from a war
We’ve got the right to stand up and fight
If trouble comes a knockin’ at our door.
But trouble don’t knock, no trouble don’t knock
It doesn’t even give you time to cock your gun
and the damage is done.
