You Need To See This Haunting Hallelujah Parody Dedicated To NRA’s Wayne LaPierre

This will haunt you.

Lyrics at the bottom of the article.

Is there anyone on the left who doesn’t detest the NRA’s CEO Wayne LaPierre? Nope.

The Parody Project has put together a haunting cover of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah. This video is meant to be a parody, but it hits home in a way that may haunt you. Via the group’s website.

Hallelujah Parody: The arguments for, and the resistance to sensible gun regulations rage on – and centerstage is the NRA, led by Wayne LaPierre and spokesperson Dana Loesch – The rhetoric of both of the people is utterly predictable, outdated and senseless and they hide behind the second amendment because they just like their toys that much.


Open Letter to Wayne LaPierre

You see yourself the defender of
the amendment passed to you from above,
and any change that happens must go through ya.
While other freedoms slipped away
with nothing standing in their way,
you waved your gun and claimed your hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

We’ve heard you say these words before,
about the guns that you adore.
There really is no point in talkin’ to ya.
You pride yourself the ears and eyes
of five or so million other guys,
and think your words will draw their hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your mind is stuck in sixty-five
when cold-war commies were alive.
And those who wanted change were out to screw ya.
And gun controls of any kind
mean liberal commies in your mind
who’ll steal your rights then raise their hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Your logic is profoundly flawed,
with teachers for your new vice-squad.
You’d arm them to the teeth but they see through ya.
Your rigid stance results in death.
You claim that right with every breath,
howling through your broken hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

We think it’s time that you step down.
Just walk away and pass the crown,
before someone decides they need to sue ya.
The arms race lost, it would appear
and you’ve become the thing you fear
an echo of your bloody hallelujah.

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
