Guns Talk: A Parody of “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men

GunTalk_585x585

Hey! Hey! Hey!

She was just walking down the street,

and they come blasting, chased by the heat.

The kid is playing outside while he is asleep,

and now one is lost with memories left to keep.

 

And some days I can’t even watch the news.

It’s killing me to see the good guys lose.

 

‘Cause guns are not the things of play.

This weapon claims lives and refuses to go away.

 

Hey! Hey! Hey!

 

There’s an old place called Jillain’s that calls me back

House of Dead and Time Crisis puts me on the attack

Soon I will be blasting them down one by one

I was used to playing this when I was young

And I knew then that this was just a game.

 

Some days I don’t know if people are wrong or right

Their mind is tricking them, their reality threatening to hold on tight

 

‘Cause guns are not the things of play.

This weapon claims lives and refuses to go away.

 

Hey!

Don’t listen to what the media has to say.

Hey!

Talk to the real people of today.

Hey!

 

‘Cause guns are not the things of play.

This weapon claims lives and refuses to go away.

 

Hey!

Hey!

 

They’re gone, gone far away

We watched them disappear

All that’s left is the ghost of them

Now, lives are torn, torn so apart

There’s nothing that we can do

Just tell the stories of a world gone mad

Now, wait, wait for hope

Please don’t fear

For the lost is not really gone and close to here.

 

Hey!

Don’t listen to what the media has to say.

Hey!

Talk to the real people of today.

Hey!

‘Cause guns are not the things of play.

This weapon claims lives and refuses to go away.
