HOW LONG?
(Robertson 2015)

I got a neighbor
she's afraid to leave her place
last year she was robbed
and got shot in the face
she says the NRA
is a national disgrace
How long 'til we get rid of the guns?

I take my wife to dinner
we grab a bite to eat
some fool walks up to the waitress
and he demands a seat
he's got a rifle strapped on his back
everyone looks at their feet
How long 'til we get rid of the guns?

We take our kids to school
and when they get out of sight
we sit home and worry
you know that just ain't right
we jump everytime the phone rings
I think it's time to fight.
How long 'til we get rid of the guns?

We don't go to the movies
we don't go to the store
we don't go to McDonalds
or Wendys anymore
we just stay home and wonder
what we're living for.
How long 'til we get rid of the guns?

about

Craig Robertson Boston, Massachusetts

I live in a landscape of ghosts and scientific oddities. Memories surface like flying fish in a glassy ocean. Songwriting for me is like a spiderweb; the strangest things fly into it.
