The lyrics are based on a 1995 school shooting in Washington state. The shooter was Ron Brown, who the other kids called "Ronnie Frown."
Story starts
Quiet town
Small town boy
Big time frown
Never talks
Never plays
Different paths
Lost his way

The streets are red
Red I'm afraid
There's no confetti
No parade
Nothing happens in this boring place
But oh my God how it all did change
Now they all pray
Blood stain wash away

He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way

I heard him
He said
Lost my way
All things wash away
But blood stained the sun red today

I always said
Something wrong
With little strange
Ronnie Long
Never laughed
Never smiled
Talked alone for miles and miles and miles

Gallow calls
Son I say
Keep your smile and laugh all day
Think once again in this boring place
For little boys how they soon change

Now they all pray
Blood stain wash away

He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way

I heard him
He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way
All things wash away
But blood stained the sun red today

(Spoken)
Yeah, well all the green things died
When Ronnie moved to this place
He said
Don't you dare ask
Why I'm cursed to wear this face

Now we all know why
The children called him chicken frown
When he pulled that gun from his pocket
They all fall down, down, down

He said
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way

I heard him
He screamed
Lost my way
This bloody day
Lost my way
All things wash away
But blood stained the sun red today

That's right
All things wash away
The all fall down
But blood stained the sun today

All things wash away
And they all fall down
But blood stained the sun today
