lyrics

* We wanted to add a little disclaimer to the lyrics for this song. Please do not confuse us with some nationalist band or some right wing nut jobs. Our decision to be armed is a reaction to where we live and what we've experienced while living and growing up in a country where just about everyone on either side of the law is armed. Please withhold judgement until you've had the chance to have a discussion with us about the topic. Thanks! -GD

EQUALIZER

It is written in the United States constitution that a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

A gun, a machine, this is what we fight with as human beings
The right to fight and protect our lives
The right to fight against genocide
We’ve seen throughout history when this right is taken away
It’s those who end up dead at the end of the gun they gave away
Shoot to live not to kill, shoot to live not to kill

The founding fathers of this nation gave us the tools to fight oppression
To fight tyranny, to fight genocide, for this gun on my side I fight with pride
The founding fathers of this nation gave us the tools to fight oppression
To fight tyranny, to fight genocide, for this gun on my side I fight with pride

I refuse to be a victim
The one who’s caught in a sticky situation
My fists can only get me so far but my gun is the ultimate equalizer
Small town problems with a world-wide perspective
Hear me clear I’m not the one to mess with
Without my weapon I’ll never be
My gun defends but does not define me

The founding fathers of this nation gave us the tools to fight oppression
To fight tyranny, to fight genocide, for this gun on my side I fight with pride
The founding fathers of this nation gave us the tools to fight oppression
To fight tyranny, to fight genocide, for this gun on my side I fight with pride

Don’t be scared just educate yourselves
The powers to be are temporary
We’ll protect ourselves and not depend on anybody else
We’ll arm ourselves and know our rights
I hope it doesn’t come to it but if I have to I’m prepared to fight
You get my back and I’ll get yours
Its revolution time, tomorrow is ours!


It is written in the United States constitution that a well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. This is our right in which our fathers and forefathers laid down their fuckin lives. Without my weapon I’ll never be. My gun defends but does not define me.
