Man With a Gun

I was in my car on the way back home
When i heard the news on the radio
Sixteen dead at the shopping mall
Some crazy kid done killed them all
With guns he bought at a sporting store
The helmet, mask and vest he wore
Sixteen gone but many more to come

Man with a gun

And we send our children off to school
In a bus or a bike or a folks carpool
And we sweat and save so that they can learn
How to put the fires out we burn
But it seems like very month or so
The children donít come home no more
Families cry in vain out to the sun

Man with a gun

Man with a gun            

Man with a gun

Far across the world they're hungry too
And the want the same things that we do
Some peace of mind and a piece of land
To get along as best they can
But somethingís coming up the hill
The dogs and horses canít stay still
Before the moon is high itíll all be done

Man with a gun

Man with a gun

Man with a gun

On the video and TV screens
Bloody murder heinous scenes
Pay your money stand in line
Itís all a part of Godís design
Itís destiny   itís only fate
Itís natural for us to hate
How do you think this land of ours was won?

Man with a gun

I was in my car on the way back home
When i heard the news on the radio
