Billy left home one morning, he walked right out the door
He said goodbye to his former life and he never came back no more
Oh Billy, there's anger in your heart
Oh Billy, there's madness in your eyes
He took his favorite handgun, with his rifle he felt free
He cleaned them all the night before, he was armed as he could be
Oh Billy, there s anger in your heart
Oh Billy, there's sadness in your eyes
'Cause it's a sad world where there's no one
Who can reach out to the source of your pain
Yes, it's a sad world, such a sad, sad world
When only peace comes at the end of a gun
Oh, woh
He found the tallest building, like a bird's nest in the sky
He shed a tear as he took his aim at the people passing by
Oh Billy, there's anger in your heart
Oh Billy, there's sadness in your eyes
Well it's a sad world where there's no one
Who can reach out to the source of your pain
Yes, it's a sad world, such a sad, sad world
When only peace comes at the end of a gun
Oh, woh
Before he pulled the trigger he knelt as if to pray
And at the top of the church he will never be found
Since he took his life that day
Oh Billy, there's anger in your heart
Ah Billy, there's sadness in your eyes
'Cause it's a sad world where there's no one
Who can reach out to the source of your pain
Yes, it's a sad world, such a sad, sad world
When only peace comes at the end of a gun
Yes, it's a sad world when there's no one
Who can hold you when you just need to cry
And it's a sad, sad world when there's no one
Who would care if, if you live or you die
And it's a sad world
Such a sad, sad world
It's a sad world
