Just Playing

Bang Bang
You're dead
I shoot you in the head

Joe feels a bit of fear
He remembers how it really was
Death is a game to a child with a play gun
But it's no game to a man in Vietnam
"Hey"
They're just kids having fun

Looking down the main street of Chicago
He wonders
Have we grown up
Have we learned
    or are we still having fun
There has to be a better way
