That's my boy
American son
Hope I'm not around
When he gets the idea
To buy a gun.

That's our boy
America's gone
Hope I'm not to blame
When he gets the idea
To kill someone.

How do you ever really love someone?
How do you ever really love someone?
The flag's been broken

By an enemy
Raised on MTV
Raised on you and me

How do you ever really love someone?
How do you ever really love someone?

Gone, yeah, he's gone
And I have known nothing 'bout you
Yeah, he's gone
And he's never coming back.

Where's our saviour?
I'm looking for a sign
Just need something to clean
The blood from my numb, weary mind

How do you ever really love someone?
How do you ever really love someone?

    General CommentI just got today the double CD after waiting a few months. It's by far my favorite song on the CD, the lyrics are great.

    But I will agree with both of you, in that school shootings just come to mind. But you could take it to a higher step. Nowadays, parents are being less of parents, kids are growing up, getting the idea that they can do anything and everything, and not get in trouble cause mom&dad are going to save them.

    It sucks. But it's reality.
