Camp Cope – Jet Fuel Can't Melt Steel Beams lyrics

I’m not gonna climb
A ladder for the rest of my life
You said that and stood back
And you walked away before they could react

Hearing catcalls from police cars
And they say "what you gonna do about it
Dressed the way you are?"
That’s a very common line
They say you’re asking for it
When you’re walking home alone at night

They say the only thing that stops
A bad man with a gun
Is a good man with a gun
The lies, they scaring you
The only thing that stops
A bad man with a gun
Is a good man with a gun
The lies they use to control you

So you turned and walked away
Forgot everything they taught you 'til that day
You started arguing eloquently
As to whether jet fuel can melt steel beams

Hearing catcalls from a construction yard
They’ll say “take it as a compliment,
They’re only being nice”
Yeah it’s a far too common line
And you carry keys between your knuckles
When you walk alone at night

They say the only thing that stops
A bad man with a gun
Is a good man with a gun
The lies they sell to you
The only thing that stops
A bad man with a gun
Is a good man with a gun
The lies they use to control you

It’s the trophy wives raising trophy wives
Raising children on TV
Scared of people like you and me
Just don’t ask questions; you’ll sleep peacefully
We will not go out in silence
We will not go quietly
No, jet fuel can't melt steel beams
I’ve watched enough conspiracy documentaries

Yeah, the only thing that stops
A bad man with a gun
Is a good man with a gun
The lies they use to control you
The only thing that stops
A bad man with a gun
Is a good man with a gun
The lies they use to control you
Use to control you...
