Lyrics

Don’t say a word
Don’t be afraid
Take hold of my hand and hide
Just like our drill
Sit quiet and still
No one will come inside

In the quiet dark she wonders 
How they’ll make it out alive
Still she bravely gives them comfort
As they hear the bullets fly

ABC’s
AR-15
Confusion outside the door
They hear him walk in
“Forgive us our sins”
She whispers and then they’re gone

Too many times I’ve sat and wondered
How we let it go awry
How a law meant to protect us
Became a place for greed to hide

Our right to bear arms
Our right to bear arms
Our right to bear arms

Now is the time
We must take action (We need more than thoughts and prayers)
Raise up our voices to be heard (We need more than thoughts and prayers)
Take back the right our Fathers fought for (We need more than thoughts and prayers)
Not the right to kill
The right to live

She sits on his bed
Can’t comprehend
Her six year old baby is dead
Twenty five more
Their blood on the floor
The nightmare replays in her head

In the dark she numbly wonders
How they justify the cost
Of the profits they’re defending
And the right her son has lost

Our right to bear arms
Our right to bear arms
Our right to bear arms
