about

The politically enigmatic song written by D.I. in 1983 and originally titled "Guns" caused fans to ponder whether the band leaned more to the left or more to the right and whether or not the lyrics were coated with subtle sarcasm. Regardless, it's a song worth remembering with a fun singalong chorus.

lyrics

Weapons, weapons, weapons.

M-16's and 45's,
They help your country stay alive.
They got the guns but I got the trigger,
We're gonna make things a whole lot bigger.

Social dogma, you think you're safe?
I think I'm losing my mind.
Deal with reality, deal with facts.
If they shoot at you, you gotta shoot back.

Cuz I like guns and guns like me,
I like guns they made South Africa free.
I like guns and guns are the way,
I like guns.

So you're lost in your lost world,
Without my own weapon I'd rather be dead.
People in the streets getting shot at every hour,
That's what our Mandela said.
Time to look out your front door,
Blow that fucker right on the floor.
Show them the way, because you know it.
Show em the way because its your right.

Cuz I like guns and guns like me,
I like guns they made South Africa free.
I like guns and guns all the way,
I like guns.
Weapons, weapons, weapons.

People on the street you think you're safe,
There are guns all over the place.
They'll take our toys and the government will have them.
It's time to not let them oppress you,
Time to force your lives on them.
Show 'em the way cuz you know it,
Show 'em the way cuz its your right.

I like guns and guns like me,
I like guns they made South Africa free.
I like guns and guns are the way,
I like guns
Weapons, weapons, weapons.

Remember:
The right to bare arms,
The right to bare arms,
The right to bare arms,
One of them gonna get you...
