Law Abiding Citizen
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
