God made all of men,
Colt made 'em equal
A pulled-back hammer
And a squeezed trigger
Changed the new nation

The fastest half inch
An undoable,
Irreversible
Half of an inch
Changed the new nation

Tears through flesh and bone
Destroys life and health
Frees the blood and air
Threatens and defends,
Changed the new nation

Half of an inch
Removed the balance
Between natives and
The new settlers,
Changed the new nation

Lawful and evil,
Both became stronger
Marshalls and robbers
Sheriffs and killers
Changed the new nation

Settled the Wild West
Inspired the East
Encouraged the bold
Protected the meek,
Changed the new nation
