The Lyrics

it's too awful that the leading cause of death for kids in the US is now gun violence.
Those shots on the streets
It’s way too familiar
Sad expectations
Everybody's watching news
People you meet
They all hate to hear that news
They wish they could say
That it was something new

Too many lately
More shot kids in towns
Their families loved them
And now they’re so down

Look at crying eyes as sad music has to play
Hopeless senators, here we go again
God how you wish that they would do more than pray
Torn hearts and bodies never mend

Too many lately
More shot kids in towns
Leaders should change this
But they’re not around…

There're so many laws that could make this better
But night after night there’s only
More prayer, more prayer
Nothing but more prayer

Those shots on the streets should always remind you
Doesn't really matter which side you're on
If you walk away, more will die behind you
They will never forget them 'til another shooting comes along

Too many lately
Too many shot kids in towns
Their families loved them, didn't they?
Leaders should change this
But they’re not around…

Oh, my-my
Too many shot kids in towns
Too many shot kids in towns

More people should be talking 'bout
The shot kids in towns
Leaders should be acting on
The shot kids in towns

Too many shot kids in towns
Leaders need to hear it
Too many shot kids in towns
Too many have to fear it

Too many shot kids in towns
Too many shot kids in towns
Too many shot kids in towns
Everybody talk about
The shot kids in towns
Leaders, please prevent more
Shot kids in towns

My sincerest sympathies. I can see the_conqueror_of_parodies has already started early. I’ll try and give you 555 votes to help counteract the_conqueror_of_prarodies selfish behaviour.

Explain this to me. If we're going with the theory that CoP's cache-clearing causes certain reactions, why would it necessarily mean negative numbers, and more importantly, why would it only affect one poster?
eel deal - June 12, 2023 - Report this comment
it doesn't mean negative numbers in some instances, and multiple posters are affected, but i tend to think it's a bot.

Well, Troll, I considered the possibility that it could be TCOP for about a picofraction of a nanosecond .. but you blew it with the fake TCOP post

CML is right. TCOP doesn't post comments under his author name. Busted.

I love you Agrimorfee !

Aaaaand now the troll is posting under the name I actually post under. I'd report it, but I think I'll leave it for the same reason I haven't reported the ones under my full parody name: this idiot's attempts to get under my skin are hilariously pathetic. I like to consider them a record of wasted time. They're right about one thing, though: I am deeply appreciative of Agrimorfee and others who have been backing me up. Hope for humanity and all that. - the real TCOP
