about

A song about violence, about the inanimate objects humans use for violence (“these are things, all made by man, can’t act until guided by a hand”) & about a hope for people (“it’s up to us to find a better way”). A timely anti-violence discourse.

lyrics

A gun don’t have a face
bullet ain’t got a name
blade not a thought
all ends the same

Tanks don’t have a care
plane ain’t got a mind
bomb don’t have a soul
nothing there to find


All of these are made by man
Can’t act until guided by a hand
Taking lives every minute of the day
It’s up to us to find a better way


Rope don’t have a brain
sword ain’t got an arm
club don’t have a pulse
will we take a stand?

Drone can’t feel a thing
grenades don’t have a heart
rifles got no eyes
let’s make a new start

All of these are made by man
Can’t act until guided by a hand
Taking lives every minute of the day
It’s up to us to find a better way


All of these are made by man
Can’t act until guided by a hand
Taking lives every minute of the day
It’s up to us to find a better way
It’s up to us to find a better way
Up to us to find a better way
