lyrics

Another sunshiny mornin’ in the Green Zone
For Johnny and Peggy … it’s time for school
Yellow APC pulls up at the curbside
Dad’s got them covered, they dash till they’re inside

Bus makes it through the checkpoints, rolling steady
Principal’s waiting at the school door… His Uzi at the ready
Down in the classroom now, Miss Macy's taking attendance …
Is everyone here? A moment of silence.

Times tables
Bad man fables.
We work till it’s recess time,
Then get to play outside.
Kids laugh and make light,
‘Cause they know Miss Macy’s up high
Scanning 'round with her sniper sight

Ooo
Guns blaze again
Guns blaze again
Another citizen
Has lost his head again.

Lock, load, we drilled you on this
Take aim, and teacher don’t you miss.
Never gonna hide and plead
We’re armed to the teeth
But who’s the enemy?

On Sunday it’s family time, let’s go for a ride
We can check out the Wal-mart sale, buy some supplies
Look daddy, ammo crates, pumpkins and lemonade,
School supplies, claymore mines, a box of grenades.
Daddy says, son, you can’t leave nothing to chance;
Can never be too certain, always buy from trusted brands.

It’s all on discount now, if you read the signs.
Come on kids,head for checkout lines
In the parking lot, smile and wave as neighbors pass
Their carts loaded up too ... doggie treats and full-face gas masks

Ooo
Guns blaze again
Guns blaze again
Another citizen
Has lost his head again.

Lock, load, we drilled you on this
Take aim, and Daddy don’t you miss.
Never gonna hide and plead
We’re armed to the teeth
But who’s the enemy?

Bedtime children, say your prayers
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil
In Glock we trust
Live by the bullet we must

Are we safe now?
Ooh, doo do do do doo … Are we safe now?
Are we safe now?
Ooh do do do do doo … Are we safe now?
Mommy Daddy … Are we safe now?

Our children sleep peaceful and / sound at night
Home’s like a bunker, we’re all locked in tight
Protection raised so high, no one would dare
Never go back, to feeling menaced and scared

So damn prepared, inside it's all smiling faces
Inside here you'll never find criminal traces
No matter where you go there's watchful eyes
Predator drones overhead, circle the skies.
We got no worries
You’re safe if you just don’t trust
And everyone controls their trigger lust
No one wants to be prey
You know what I mean, after all, it’s small price to pay.

Ooo
Guns blaze again
Guns blaze again
Another citizen
Has lost his head again.

Lock, load, we drilled you on this
Take aim, and children don’t you miss.

Never gonna hide and plead
We’re armed to the teeth
But who’s the enemy?
