Well I think we need a little bit of humor here... :)
Glen Phillips the former lead singer of Toad the Wet Sprocket is amazing and this song is on his new album just released in stores. It actually is about a story about Ben Folds of Ben Folds Five, when he was a kid...
Drive-By
Music and Lyrics by Glen Phillips

I was the driver for the drive-by of the neighbors dog
dad had always hated him and he said come on son
get into the vega now and
I'll go get my shotgun

it was a military holiday and kids were everywhere
I hid behind the steering wheel and tried to disappear
tried to speak but couldn't
dad was whistling and drinking beer

And I prayed dear God
if you save this dog
I will never get high
I will never jack off
I will do all the things that I should but have not
I'll be a good boy from now on

we turned around the corner soon and saw the neighbors yard
dad lit up a cigarette and rolled the window down
and grinning like an idiot
he stuck his head and body out

And I prayed dear God
if you save this dog
I will never get high
I will never jack off
I will be all the things that I should but am not
I'll be a good boy from now on
I'll be a good boy from now on

Well he popped in a shell
took aim with the gun
then a flash and a bang
and the dog it was gone

it jumped up and it ran away
dad had shot right through it's chain

well dad said take me to the dairy freeze
I wanna have a shake
we sipped them on the benches there
and stared out on the lake
and dad has never said another word about that day

And I hope you're not disappointed God
cause I still get high
and I still jack off
and you knew I was lying but you still saved that dog
you're such a good God
you're such a good good God
you're such a good goddamn backwards dog
and I'll be a good boy from now on
