You wanna know what i learned in school today?
That if some one should come into our building with a mind to kill
We should pick up our chair--
A mind to kill…
I thought a mind was a terrible thing to waste?
you know what,
If some nut decides to shoot up the place, I'm to grab a chair, shield myself and charge
He cannot kill us all she said.
And i looked at her to see if it was a joke
Which it wasn’t,
Then I had all of these questions….right
What if he comes?
What if he he's armed?
What if he shoots?
what if he kills?
What if he finds us?
Where will i be sitting?
Will be fast enough?
Will it hurt ?
Will i drop the chair?
If he comes
Cause we know its usually a he,
And we know he is usually suffering
Mentally in some way,
And we know he usually pics schools,
But we don't know how to stop him.
That's just great!
Our only weapon against a mind to kill
Is broken pencils and eraser dust.
But a mind is a terrible thing to waste?
So somebody hand me a chair
So i can practice,
So i can be ready,
Cause he can’t kill us all.
Maybe I wont be nervous
Maybe i wont drop the chair.
Maybe ill do chair lifts or maybe, maybe i’ll just sit here
Until the adults figure it out
Cause u see a chair, a chair, is a terrible thing to waste
