It’s time to put the guns down
But if you must have a showdown
Don’t be a coward just raise up your fist
Y’all must’ve forgotten that they even exist
Just don’t run, just don’t miss

No more laying out loved ones to rest
Not our fault you aimed east but the bullet went West
Bullets have no name nor location on them
But because you had to pull that trigger now my heart is numb
Because you did something dumb

Pulling a trigger don’t make you hard
Not retaliating doesn’t make you soft
But remember these words I’m about to say
If you pull that trigger be my guest, because karma is a Bitch and them tables always turn
So don’t be scared when the role is switched
When you stare down that barrel to that gun you can only blame yourself because you caused that shit
