Dangerous Toy

Andy went walking with a dangerous toy
how was he supposed to know, he was a 13 year old boy
they said it looked like a real gun
but Andy didn’t have one
Andy went walking with a dangerous toy

two deputies driving on a dangerous day
saw a young boy walking past the fields of play
wearin’ a hoodie and his skin was brown
says one to the other what’s he doin’ around here
Andy went walking with a dangerous toy

the one who pulled the trigger was an expert shot
saw an enemy walkin’ through a vacant lot
took out his pistol and he shot him down
shot him sixteen more when he was on the ground
Andy went walking with a dangerous toy

this American Dream is a nightmare for some
you know it’s been that way
and it’s still that way
they’ll sell you a toy gun
kill you with a real one
Andy went walking with a dangerous toy

Andy was killed from two sides that day
one was a toy too real for play
the other was a deputy at the top of his game
armed to the teeth and combat trained
we got battle lines drawn against the ones unknown
and the wars we fight are coming home
if the cops weren’t soldiers and guns weren’t play
Andy never would’ve died that day
Andy went walking with a dangerous toy
and these are dangerous times for a little boy
