​Automatic Rifle

This song is by Rocky Votolato and appears on the album Suicide Medicine (2003).

The night I turned 25 it was legos on the floor
It seemed like a safe enough game
For a man to play with his daughter
An automatic rifle and a bullet through the window
And the troops are satisfied that justice had been delivered

That was enough to set the spark of a vision in another
18 years - 18 year old girl - to see herself a martyr
To keep up with the cycle
Of an automatic rifle and a bullet through the window
And the troops were satisfied that justice had been delivered

Close your eyes to the sun's blinding light
A three story concrete house and a steady paycheck
Cause open eyes will be
Infected with politics
And even a smart girl can end up
With a bomb strapped to her chest
