lyrics

If I become a victim of the next mall shooting
don't let me be a statement made by some political party
and if I am blown up by a bomb strapped to some zealous man
don't let me become a monument to hatred and distrust please

I can't stand the thought
of my life coming to mean a lot
as someone that I am not
and never was to the people that I love

Let me become a victim of the next school shooting
but don't let me be made an argument in favor of concealed carry
I'd rather catch my end unknown than to become a match
that ignites a fear fueled fire disguised as essential rights

I can't stand the thought
of my life coming to mean a lot
as someone that I am not
and never was to the people that I love
