Parkland, Santa Fe, Vegas, Orlando, Charleston, Sutherland Springs
Congress and the Senate got the NRA on payroll
4-time killers, now they singing abran, fuego
Protected with their pistols, ain't no substitute for NATO 
Law abiding citizen, they got themselves a halo
You're kidding, shooting 50 cans in your backyard, nah that doesn't count as a living
Bump stock, ACOG, mag-fed, bipod
Colt-made by a 'death-god', now I'm T-bagging his dead bod 

Course you know I'm talkin' bout the AR-15 rifle
50 dead in Vegas and they callin' it a trifle 
'The right to bear arms', yeah you don't get to take lives though
Now the kids are angry and I know they won't be stifled 
Done poopin' on 2A and I'm movin' on to a new day 
With a Federal Ban on AK's, sure the streets should feel more safe 
It expired back in Sept '04, since then little to show for 
'Nother person dead please no more, I beg of you don't sow war 

Now when did this ever become OK? (Hey) 
We got children down here dying every single day (hold your fire)
Sure you can keep your firearms cause it's 'just your way' (Hey)  
Nobody take you serious on what you say (Funeral pyre)

Come, let's deal with the people shouting that it ain't the gun's fault 
How many mass shootings have you seen with half a spoon of table salt 
Or a plastic fork, or a butter knife, or a black cap from a biro
Come on, give me a reason, your head spinning like a gyro (10-32)
I don't have confidence, in our offices, animal carcasses, even Obama says (White kid)
Marching for our defence, breaking your promises, done making a lot o' sense (10-32)
Gonna turn ominous, you go ad hominem, block your oesophagus (White kid)
Yeah we need Sudocrem, getting this off of us 
Make your militia then, show me your dominance, needing Diazepam, can't be a pros. offence 
(10-32)

Now when did this ever become OK? (On the Bill Of Rights) 
We got children down here dying every single day (Parents lonelier at night)
Sure you can keep your firearms cause it's 'just your way' (Don't nobody wanna fight)  
Nobody take you serious on what you say 
Now when did this ever become OK? (On the Bill Of Rights) 
We got children down here dying every single day (Parents lonelier at night)
Waiting for their kids to come home, every call goes straight to answerphone 
We don't know if they're out the danger zone, born to die alone, it could be your own

Put down your weapons, who will be the first to make their confession
Exposing your lies is now my profession, being complicit in murder is your obsession
We know some leaders make intercessions, Supreme Court in DC could be in session 
Columbia v Heller was your oppression, mental health issues don't cause aggression
400 rounds a minute, where's the logic in it? 
Out there purging sinners, blowing out their innards, no shame in admitting 
Muskets we're forgiving, many years of living, then the law was fitting
Now we know who's winning, looking through your prism, funding terrorism 
Civil rights in prison, isolationism, enigmatic wisdom, hear my aphorism, cue a cataclysm 
No left and no right, a bipartisan crew, flying no colours of crimson or blue
Don't make this political, P-O-double-S-E, less about your culture, posted to addressee 
18/21, both ages are wrong, arguments are petty, solving them with guns 
Knew it all along clue is in the song, law abiding citizen is where it's from
The first, the fourth, the fifth, the sixth, the seventh time 
Still nothing was done in government 
Look Australia went and banned to cover it, if you think America gotta run the world again
Then you can tell me what's it done by favouring
Judicial system that ignores the state it's in, what makes it worth this life we're savouring
Looking out for more than just your kin
