Bang, your dead

Bullet Society

I didn’t know the kid’
maybe he was a good kid
maybe he was a bad kid
perhaps neither or both, likely he was just a kid

I didn’t know the vigilante
but, theres no excuse for vigilantism
no excuse for killing, no matter the law
what’s clearly wrong cannot somehow be right

I didn’t know the kid
likely our paths would never cross
but I do know the vigilante’s bullet took the kid
and the State’s stupid “stand your ground” law let it happen

I didn't know the vigilante
he was tried in a court of law
he was exonerated of all charges
what message will that send to the next guy with a gun
