Bang Bang Bang - Talky blues social commentary. The lyrics are political, rebellious, and tired of the shooters and gun proponents. "Bang Bang Bang" is the gun going off. The track is both bends to gospel as we it preaches for peace and an end to this violence. Homage is paid to Gil Scot Heron. Only a revolution of voting and protest will work, you can't just tweet from your living room, you have to get out into the streets. We all do. - patrick

Evolution is now influenced by shooters
Darwin gets shot at an NRA debate
Hate is now endorsed by politicians
If they can tax it they can make America great
*Have you practiced "There's a shooter on the street?"
Practiced with your kids, your family?
Guns kill more than whomever they could ever teach
Schools aren’t suppose to make students bleed
There's something wrong here
And that's what you Tweet
Bang Bang Bang they just shot your meme

Do Homeless people have homeless dreams
That can't be woken by this society?
So who better to strafe by rifle ricochet
Than the homeless who clutter the streets?
*Shoot migrants in the legs" our president says
His hate loaded like ammo magazines
Bang Bang Bang he foams at the mouth
And Bang Bang Bang becomes me, me, me
Now this dude is really wrong here
So You do declare
Bang Bang Bang they just shot your meme

If you’re invisible can democracy be indivisible
If you don't vote then what exactly is your role
If you're silent about how this country is now
Bang bang bang wins at the polls
Disgust doesn’t get rid of the shooters
Hope by itself can’t change society
But the right to life overrides the right to rifle

Bang Bang Bang, they just shot your meme
Bang bang bang
