lyrics

ex girls middle name is crazy
my shotguns name is King David
click-clack bang, Robin Hood gonna take it
go and take my money cause I'm all out of patience
Aah! oh dang it! Danger: buckshot nature
brass knuckle belt-buckle, shock with a taser
Think I ain't hard, billy stick to the forearm
on that X like a Second Amendment
No piercings: get hit, split, blood-pour-torrent
O'Shay say ya steel toe is a weapon
I don't wanna do it, but I guess I gotta bust him
guess these boots are good for more than construction
carry knives since the 7th grade
ever since this kid try to stab me
didn't cause trouble, some things just happen
gotta save ya life like a tactical prophylactic
the devils so hectic

Chorus:
ain't glorifyin' violence, this is what life is
not your fault your attacked, its your fault your not prepared
gun safe, cash box, fill it all up likes its the end times
learn a martial art n become a strong arm
ya might be scared but that's how we all start
you gotta think real hard if you wanna be alive
cause things change quick and a lot of people die

Knock knock- whose there?: Dead man walkin'
think I wont kill protectin' my offspring
wanna be a problem? guess I gotta solve em
purge these balls comin' outta my shotgun
boys got the ArmaLite hangin in the closet
chillin at the beach with a SWAT team
Temple Terrace, shoot outs and rapes
down the street of my apartment
broad day taxi killed at a mall-stop
DeShaney v. Winnebago,
cops don't gotta protect, don't say I didn't warn you,
helicopters over back yards, guess thats where the felons are
someone try to break in; barricade the door: next they try to steal ya car
this ain't television, real people take it too far
they could take your life, if your lucky, leave a scar
or you could get protection and load a firearm

Chorus:
ain't glorifyin' violence, this is what life is
ain't your fault your attacked, its your fault your not prepared
gun safe, cash box, fill it all up likes its the end times
learn a martial art n become a strong arm
ya might be scared but thats how we all start
you gotta think real hard if you wanna be alive
cause things change quick and a lot of people die

police scanner and a Cadillac
Goons and a Goblin with ski masks
taken out kids no apology back
blood, guts, brick, gang, baseball bats
Terrorist cells who be stashin gats
drug addict had a spaz attack
rippin off flesh where the madness at
expect all them to be sorry bout that?
they wanna take our guns like the fascists
Molon Labe: out of my dead hands
ain't gonna be Venezuela: Welcome to America
protect more than we kill, three million times a year
your government don't care if they don't fear you
History repeats like a redo,
these politicians is so see-through
body gourds for themselves but don't care about the people
so evil

my advice, what I seen heard been through
this is my epistle: take your peace sign n'
say "goodbye, I love you".
pains been there, this is what it always comes to
none of these mad men really care about you
welcome to the battle between good and evil
where sometimes you gotta hurt people
to save people, if you don't struggle right
somebodies gonna eat you
