lyrics

I keep a pistol in my pocket at all times.
It’s loaded with lies.
Strictly there for self defense.
I’m not one for violence
but there comes a time
when inaction becomes a crime.
only then
would I consider causing harm
but to be unarmed is to be unsafe.
These days,
there’s no way to know where
it’s okay to go when
the police do not care.

When everyone has got a gun
And they’re firing shots just for fun
It makes a hero of anyone
Who will show some restraint
and put the gun away
no need for weapons in a discussion.

When everyone has got a gun
And they’re firing shots just for fun
It makes a hero of anyone
Who will show some restraint
and put the gun away
So if your not using yours
To keep the violence from your door
then to you I must implore
you to put your gun away.
There’s no need to live this way! Say!

I keep a pistol in my pocket at all times
but I think that I may not need it.
It sure would simplify
to live a life that’s free from lies
to shed the burden to align
the stories that I’ve designed.
No needless scandal,
disinclined to take a stand ‘til
I can be sure that my words reflect my mind.
Though I know
This road will wind
I’ll put my gun away.
No need to live this way! Say!
