A pleasant little ditty about a very unpleasant subject.

Big thanks again to unreal_dm for the music.

I’m not going to church today
I don’t feel like getting blown away
I already know right from wrong
So I’ll stay right here at home and pray

Pray for all the souls that don’t
Pray somehow they learn
Then I’ll realize they won’t
and I’m wasting my concern

A mass shooting every weekend
In this great land of ours
Thanks to guns and mental patients
and a congress full of cowards

Called on by Americans
from every far flung section
but all they seem to care about
is their goddam re-election

They’re paid by super wealthy folk
as I understand it
to keep the status-quo afloat
or even to expand it

They say no one is responsible
it’s just the way it is
They’ve gathered their morality
and sold it to big biz

They’re the ones that sell the guns
God knows we need some more
gotta stock the armory
for the next civil war

If your trigger finger’s itching
and you just can’t wait
There’s a church full of sinners
where you can vent your hate

Here is a church
and here is the steeple
Open up the doors
and mow down all the people
Here is the pastor
he’s running up the stairs
He should have run faster
now he’s in our thoughts and prayers
