about

This song combines multiple problems of the gun industry and gun ownership. Guns and their availability is a worldwide problem. Banks can legally speculate with stocks from the weapon industry. Europe has the tendency to look up to the United States. Yet, the U.S. has a more dogmatic view than most countries on gun ownership/control and should broaden their view if it wants to reduce their murder rates. Thoughts and prayers are useless for that.

lyrics

This is a story how we always fear we’ll be attacked-
Let guns and ammo – rule the world again.
I’m curious how this fight will end.
Either way we all got blood on our hands.
Another story how we let ourselves fall off the track-
Warlords and riffles - rule the world again.
I’m curious how this debate will end.
Either way we all got blood on our hands.

Don’t stop running.

Running Running
Keep on Running – running-
‘cause their thoughts and prayers won’t stop them.
They see the world through a loaded gun-
So stuck in their reactionary plan.
Running Running
Keep on Running – running-
While we should stop and take a look around-
Start fresh with new ideas.
The world is bigger than “sea to shining sea”.

Proud Christians – with high and mighty morals-
Push their agenda - ‘cause it’s entangled with money.
