about

We have been deeply affected and blinded by our deep obsession with guns.

lyrics

It’s not meant for you by Jessica Graae (c) 2017



Hidden away, but locked and loaded.
He never used it once.
Kept in a closet for protection.
That’s how he always had done.
That’s how he always had done.

Oh, Happy Day, his son is born.
Someone to take his name.
The boy grew strong, and sharp as a thorn-
But curious, just the same.
But curious, just the same.

Don’t touch that gun, son,
It’s not meant for you.
It’s cold and it’s heavy.
The bullet goes right through.
The bullet goes right through.

It’s getting late, the sun is setting.
Boy’s waiting by himself.
He finds the key, the gun he’s getting.
“Father, I never will tell.”
“Father, I never will tell.”

Don’t touch that gun, son,
It’s not meant for you.
It’s cold and it’s heavy.
The bullet goes right through.

Laid in the ground, right by his father,
Who couldn’t bear the grief.
The boy was strong and sharp as a thorn,
A man he’d never be.
A man he’d never be.

Don’t touch that gun, son,
It’s not meant for you.
It’s cold and it’s heavy.
The bullet goes right through.
The bullet goes right through.
