The Lyrics

Dedicated to Matt McQuinn who used his body to shield his girlfriend Samantha Yowler during the "Dark Knight Massacre". He was a true hero and sacrificed his life so that she could live. He was just 27 years old. RIP.
Took hero action
Used body to shield potential victim
The life he lived was lost saving girlfriend
And you can bet that he now rests in heaven

Took hero action
Shielding girlfriend from the armed gunman
She lived all due to her boyfriend, Matt McQuinn
And you can bet that he now rests in heaven

Took hero action
Chose to die taking bullets gunman fired their way
Body protection
Was the ultimate price that he had to pay
And his way, was to deny villain (another victim)

Used body to shield potential victim
The life he lived was lost saving girlfriend
And you can bet that he now rests in heaven

I didn't hear about this. It's glad that people can still be heroic when a situation like this arises. It has to be really hard on that girl seeing her boyfriend sacrifice himself in order to save her. My sister's boyfriend accidentally shot himself and I know that she was broken up for a long time afterwards (I don't know how that girl could even cope but I hope she pulls through). This was such a disastrous event.

DISCLAIMER: 7 of my 9 parodies today deal with the "Dark Knight Massacre" of 6/20 and are NOT meant to be funny at all. I chose to express myself by providing all aspects of the incident including HEROES, the gunman, and THE TRAGEDY so similar to Columbine. Please take that into consideration when rating. I suspected that few would tackle this topic, but if nobody else wants to, I have it covered ~ Rob Arndt

Two other guys shielded the G/Fs too and died- Jon Blunk shielded Jansen Young and Alex Teves shielded Amanda Lindgren. Sad :(
