Mama, take this badge off of me
Oh Bob Dylan, how hurtful these words are. Listening to it was also rubbing it all at the same time. How abrupt and fearful things have happened. You made me forget happiness. You made me forget hope. You made my heart and soul shatter to pieces without any warning.
You made his soul gone. Our hopes gone.
It’s gettin’ dark, too dark to see
I wanted to see him but I was too scared. I was too scared because we all wanted to see him but we can’t. All I saw was darkness. But I know there will be light. We prayed for his soul to rest in peace, to rest in the arms of our Lord.
I hope he will rest in peace but not in the dark.
Mama, put my guns in the ground
And now we all want to move forward. And now we all want to feel alive again. And now we all want to just celebrate the good news that he arrived and the good news that he left. I didn’t know what his purpose was, I really did not know.
And now we all want to celebrate the good and the bad news.
There’s a long black cloud comin’ on down
So another body, another life. One came after the other. Now, we’re all scared. I don’t know if the other body was a payment but just so you know, we loved you.
Your Mama misses you
Your siblings miss you
Your aunts and uncles miss you
You nieces and nephews miss you
We will all miss the both of you
So rest now
In the future, we will all be enlightened
If such things will be gone
I hope next time we won’t be frightened
Skins will be tightened
Souls will be whitened
