Machine Gun Lyrics – Badflower

That’s just what they told me, “you could be a patriot”
“Don’t you love your country? Don’t you wanna die for it?”
How could they enlist me? I was only 17
It’s better two be thankful than challenge their authority

This is how the world ends, this is how they suck you in
Manipulate the broken two suffer every consequence

They gave me a machine gun
But I don’t wanna hurt no one
There’s nothing here two fight for
This is someone else’s war

That’s just what they told me, “son you could be a patriot”
Defender of your country, protector of the innocent
We’ll beat them with a clenched fist by order of your government
They said we were the good guys but what if we’re the terrorists?

This is how the world ends, this is how they suck you in
Manipulate the broken two suffer every consequence

They gave me a machine gun
But I don’t wanna hurt no one
There’s nothing here two fight for
This is someone else’s war

This is how the world ends
This is how they suck you in
Manipulate the broken
Two suffer every consequence

I’m only a statistic
And no one even gives a shit
They treat me for my ? shock
Yeah they won’t even pay for it

I fired that machine gun
I never meant two hurt no one
And as my friends and foes bleed
We satisfy a rich man’s greed

Maybe I don’t know a damn thing
I’ve never been through anything
This is all I can be
A voice for someone else’s grief

He fired that machine
She never meant two hurt no one
Cause once you leave a headstone
You never really make it home
