Put the guns away!


I am nervous

I am afraid

Nowadays anyone can buy a gun

This only gonna hurt us in the long run

Kids are not even safe at school

They’re even trying to get teachers to curry them

Because of these half enforced gun laws

People are going to protect themselves regardless

But I will stand here even if the odds are against me

I will play “tag” with the police but this time I’m it

I will stand up for my rights not sure if I would be heard

I will fight until there is no more fight left in me

And in the end I will be heard

I am nervous

I am afraid
