How much am I worth to you?
Another theater, another school?
Another place where people gather
Out in public, or doesn’t it matter?
How much can I pay you for
your children’s blood on classroom floors?
How much is the fiance’ worth
if she’s wedding before the baby’s birth?
Tell me, because I don’t want your guns
you can keep them, I’m wanting none.
If you collect or if you hunt
I have no interest in killing your fun.
But any sane person should agree
that these “daily” mass killings are a spree
With romanticized violence the law of the land,
as responsible owners, please take a stand.
Show them what it means to be smart
Give us something, someplace to start
I don’t want to be afraid to go to the store
become another pawn in this domestic war
If it happens to one it’s a tragedy
but if it happens to more, a statistic you’ll be
Terrorism doesn’t have the brown skin like we’re told
It’s the murderer’s body count, sin chillingly cold.
