Title: Gun in your Pocket

Gun in your pocket
Malice in your eyes
Madness over conscience
Comes as no surprise
Hit out like a child
Thinking you're real smart
No sense of purpose
Bereft of soul and heart

Gun in your pocket
Malice in your eyes
One shot and it's all done
Listen to their cries
Thought you were real smart
But stigma wounds too
Innocence has ended
And it's all down to you
