lyrics

Fateful day to go to work
One morning early in Roanoke
Someone shows up with a grudge
And on live TV he settles up

Welcome to America
We take the crazies and give them guns
Over and over nothing's done
But prayers offered with shoulders shrugged

Take the crazies
Give them guns
Call it freedom
Or call it nuts
Keep your prayers
They don't do much
On a bullet train
To kingdom come

Parents drop their kids at school
A December day at Sandy Hook
Twenty dead at six years old
From first grade to their funerals

Welcome to America
Our school rooms stained with children's blood
Over and over same song sung
Such tragedies are now ho hum

Take the crazies
Give them guns
Call it freedom
Or call it nuts
Keep your prayers
They don't do much
On a bullet train
To kingdom come

Premiere night on Aurora, CO
Minutes into the midnight show
Full metal jacket attack is on
The Dark Knight ends with 12 more gone

Welcome to America
We take the crazies and give them guns
Over and over nothing's done
We can't decide we've had enough

Take the crazies
Give them guns
Call it freedom
Or call it nuts
Keep your prayers
They don't do much
On a bullet train
To kingdom come
