Song Title: Who's Calling the Shots?
Shooting sprees are on the rise, proof courtesy of the television screens
Will you lock yourself in your home and just hide,
Or go out and play God with a gun at your side?
Becoming a target or arming yourself
You're a victim of fear either way
Living in paranoia on the defense
Or taking the chance of being gunned down one day
So who's pulling the trigger, who's calling the shots?
Who is it that's controlling our fate?
We're all responsible for the environment we've created
Where none of us will ever be safe
Here comes the headlines and here comes the tears
The media feeding us our greatest fears
We see the horrifying images again and again
Children are being murdered by children
We just accept this as tragedies of life
What does this say about us?
When will we seek out some genuine solutions?
And show that we've all had enough?
Becoming a target or arming yourself
You're a victim of fear either way
Living in paranoia on the defense
Or taking the chance of being gunned down one day
So who's pulling the trigger, who's calling the shots?
Who is it that's controlling our fate?
We're all responsible for the environment we've created
Where none of us will ever be safe
As political experts discuss and debate
Who it is that's responsible for al of this hate
They're building their political platforms on a pile of corpses
Pointing their fingers and quoting us sources
Scapegoating is too easy for society's decay
Entertainment, music, drugs or the N.R.A.
What will it accomplish to pass stricter laws
When it's actually our apathy that's a much greater cause?
As long as we leave our apathy alive
We're killing our children's chances to survive
Our idealistic intentions are wrapped in a shroud
The responsibility rests with what we've allowed
A society that taught us to kill or be killed
Convinced that this is the only way to be fulfilled
I just hope that we realize before it's too late
That we ultimately control our community's fate
Becoming a target or arming yourself
You're a victim of fear either way
Living in paranoia on the defense
Or taking the chance of being gunned down one day
So who's pulling the trigger, who's calling the shots?
Who is it that's controlling our fate?
We're all responsible for the environment we've created
Where none of us will ever be safe
