This song presses the point that parents fighting has a massive effect on children. The scenario plays out with a little girl hiding in a closet because her parents are fighting. She overhears them and wishes that their harsh words didn't cause so much hurt; that they weren't real and therefore wouldn't have any repercussions. Plastic toy guns serve as the perfect analogy, especially from a child's point of view; they're harmless, almost as if it was merely a game.
