LYRICS

I’ve never lived a single day
In a world without mass school shootings
With Columbine in ninety-nine
You’d think by now I’d be desensitized
Sandy Hook when I was in seventh grade
How naive was I to believe things would change

(They never change)


‘Cause that’s the America that we live in
That’s the America we grew up in, don’t you know?

That’s the America that we fight for even though

They fight back at us as they chant “pro-life”

Bringing their guns to a playground fight


I graduated college just last week and I think about how

I was lucky enough to make it all the way through
With just bomb threats, and shooting drills
And hearing from friends at Magruder and Great Mills

And seeing it on the news, and the grief and anxiety

But never the real thing
No never the real thing

And that’s the America that we live in
That’s the America we grew up in, don’t you know?

That’s the America that we fight for even though

They fight back at us as they chant “pro-life”

Bringing their guns to a playground fight


And my friends, they never hear the end of it

And I fear we’ll never put an end to this
How many lives of children will be lost to it?

How many times?
How many times?


‘Cause that’s the America that we live in
That’s the America we grew up in, don’t you know?

That’s the America that we fight for even though

They fight back at us as they chant “pro-life”

Bringing their guns to a playground fight
Bringing their guns to a playground fight
