Lyrics
Sometimes some people get me so angry And my rage will build to insanity Then I’ll need release for my aggression But you can bet that I’ll use discretion Chorus I won’t use a gun I won’t use my fist I’m stronger than that I’m a pacifist I won’t use a gun I won’t use my fist I’m stronger than that I’m a pacifist Someone I disagree with wants to fight As if that’s gonna prove who is in the right Why must people always turn to violence? Why can’t they see that it’s all so useless? Chorus Don’t tell me violence is human nature Cause as a race we’re allowed to mature It’s time that we had some evolution It’s time for a passive revolution Chorus Instrumental (verse part) Chorus (a Capella) Sometimes some people get me so angry And my rage will build to insanity Then I need release for my aggression But you can bet that I’ll use discretion I won’t us a gun I won’t use my fist I’m stronger than that I’m a pacifist I won’t us a gun I won’t use my fist I’m stronger than that I’m a pacifist Verse (instrumental)
