Fool With A Gun

(Greg Coleman)
February 25, 2016
Written by Greg Coleman

This song is not Anti-Gun or Anti-any weapon or device. 

This song is about the senseless acts of violence committed against innocent human beings by people using guns.

This is a plea to all citizens of this planet who have open hearts and minds, begging them to please not kill another human being who is not posing a direct threat to their life, safety, health or property or that of their loved ones.

As liberal as I consider myself to be, I do not consider Guns or other weapons to be necessarily evil like so many other liberals do.

Due to the very violent nature of the society in which we live, I think they are a “Necessary Evil”.

I know that there are many victims, (both living and dead), or families of victims who wish those victims had a weapon available to defend themselves against their attackers.

Just like everything else on this planet, I think that Guns and other weapons are necessary for protection and survival, and when used correctly by those who need them can and do contribute to both of these basic human instincts.

So I am not against Guns or other weapons.

I am against the senseless and unnecessary violence and death caused by them. And just for the record, this senseless and unnecessary violence and death are often times, committed through other means as well.

This song is also about the natural laws of nature that state: What you put out, you will certainly get back.

This song is about a person who lived by the gun and who died by the gun.

And this story is also true as witnessed by me when I was still a very young man.

Verse 1: Well there's a fool he's on the run

             There's a fool he's got a gun

             He will fake you out

             Place your life in doubt

             Cause he has no respect for any life

Verse 2: He's got no color

             This cat is mean

             He cares for no one

             His love is green

             He will put you down

             Place you in the ground

             Cause he has no respect for any life

Bridge:   He isn't cool

             He's just a fool

             He plays his games

             He kills in vain

             He takes a life

             He causes pain

             And he will continue to be the boss

            Until his deadly game is lost

Verse 3: Well there's a fool he's on the run

              There's a fool he's got a gun

              He only thinks of self

              He cares for no one else

              Cause he has no respect for any life

Bridge:   He isn't cool

             He's just a fool

             He plays his games

             He kills in vain

             He takes a life

             He causes pain

            And he will continue to be the boss

            Until his deadly game is lost

Bridge:   He isn't cool

             He's just a fool

             He plays his games

             He kills in vain

             He takes a life

             He causes pain

            And he will continue to be the boss

            Until his deadly game is lost

Verse 4: He has been found

             He's been shot down

             It's come around

             Karma came on down

             There are laws that state

             They determine fate

             According to the way you treat your brother

             He wasn't cool

             He was just a fool

             He played his games

             He killed in vain

             He took some lives

             He causes pain

             But he is no longer the boss

             Because his deadly game is lost
