Babies With Guns

Album: Bazooka Tooth (2003)
  • This song describes how younger people get caught up in the pursuit of power by investing in a gun. Aesop sees hypocrisy in this generation, and expresses it through the lyric:
    "Hold Up, If the Jesus piece around your neck is bigger than your pistol it makes homicide okey-dokey and your God will forgive you. Just tell the saints at Heaven's gates 'I should be on the list, I heard He overlooks manslaughter for a tattooed crucifix.'" >>
