Original Lyrics:
There's our weapon
That we must use
In our defence

Story about this misheard lyric by: Declan

I was in the car with my father and sister when this song appeared. It was June of 2013 and I heard those lyrics. I thought, "Is it just me or does Reeva Steenkamp have Jews?" That thought reminded me of her Valentine's Day murder by Oscar Pistorius. I looked it up and I knew that they were incorrect. After 18 months I now know they were wrong.
