Lyrics

WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

Hey now you're livin' in the USA
You are one lucky son of a gun
It's the land of milk and honey
it's the land of endless fun

But many people here own a pistol
And some own a rifle too
You just might find a gun barrel
One day pointed at you

CHORUS
You better GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
Unless you wanna be the next one to die

Well you probably heard about New Town
Maybe even Columbine
It's not hard to fathom those children
Could've been yours or mine

CHORUS
You better GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
Unless you wanna be the next one to die
Next one to die

Now we have the right to bear arms
The Constitution tells us so
And it's a beautiful document
But it was written so long ago

Long before we had our own state troupers
The city police and the national guard
It's a mighty imbalanced equation
But the mathematics ain't that hard

CHORUS
You better GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
Unless you wanna be the next one to die

BRIDGE:
If almost anyone can buy a gun
The troubles gonna multiply
When everything's said and done
Many innocent folks will die
They will die
The numbers don't lie
The numbers don't lie

CHORUS
You better GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY
Unless you wanna be the next one to die
