One More Gun

In the continuing tradition of writing about things that are “Foul”, in our world, Greg has a new song about the ongoing gun-violence in our world.  He wrote the lyrics, composed the music, sang the vocals, orchestrated the bass parts.  Paul provided the drum mix & guitars.

One More Gun

What if we had pried from his cold dead fingers,

The guns that he held so dear,

Would it have saved the children at Newtown,

Or the 30,000 killed each year?

Random agendas, and hate in their eyes,

Will purchase a gun to empower their lies.

A moment of anger, out comes the steel,

The victim now knows, just how you feel.

Can we pretend, guns aren’t a disease?

Is the gun in your hand, what Jesus sees?

He’s locked and loaded, malicious intent,

He brought his weapon to a public event.

His mind is writhing, confused, in pain,

A lifelong frustration, today that will end.

He struggles with conscience, but he has the right,

To use his weapon, to shoot up the night.

His cause is worthy, he enters the stage,

Dozens lay dying, the victims of rage.

Each round discharged, can take one more life.

It’s all about power, it’s all about might.

One more gun….

What if we had pried from his cold dead fingers,

The guns that he held so dear,

Would it have saved the children at Newtown,

Or the 30,000 killed each year?

Guns used in killing, a justified price.

So gun corporations, can profit and thrive.

They want a gun, in everyone’s hand,

Guns kill our children, family, and friends.

We must teach our daughters, we must teach our sons,

To take life much faster, using a gun.

Will one more gun, make it better?

Will one more gun, make it right?

Will one more gun, save the children?

Will one more gun, calm the night?

Will one more gun, solve the problem?

Will one more gun, provide world peace?

Will one more gun, make you happy?

Will one more gun, set people free?

Will one more gun, create a solution?

Will one more gun, make everyone safe?

Will one more gun, make the difference?

Will one more gun, stop all the hate?
