I do like the attention to detail in the lyrics, like the "Monkey see, monkey do" line likely being a reference to his fascination with Travis the chimp. I also like that there seems to be a level of sympathy and/or sorrow toward Adam, rather than the usual routine of cheap "WHAT A SICK SOULLESS COWARD" jabs at a man who is already dead.
I am curious though, where did they find some of the images that they used during the song? I've obviously already seen the usual 3-4 images of him when he was in elementary/middle school that everyone spreads around but what about the others? Specifically the one at 2:08 where he seems to be wearing a hood, and the one at 2:28 where he's holding a gun?

They seem to be drawings. They aren't based on any photos of Adam that have ever been released, as far as I know, but the face in the hoodie appeared to be taken from a real photo, possibly one of the ones from high school, though I didn't pause to verify. There are a few more than just 3-4 photos of him out there, but most are from his younger years and none after age 17 or 18.

Damn. I've always been curious to see what he looked like around the time of the shooting and thought maybe those were actual released pictures I just haven't seen yet. The exact pieces of clothing he wore on that day are listed, but it's hard to imagine what he actually looked like when all you've seen are young adolescent pictures of him.

The closest thing we got to what he looked like on the day of the shooting, was a video of him playing DDR but unfortunately it does not show his face. That video of course was still awhile before the shooting occurred but it the most recent piece of media that we have of him to go off of.

Here is a music video for the song so you don't have to click on the documentary itself.
This one also includes the lyrics (on screen).

I love this song, but the documentary attached to it is disappointing. I wish i could find a real documentary about Sandy Hook.

I have a feeling no-one wants to touch this subject with a ten foot pole.

Here's a hypothetical and roughly made photoshop of what Adam would look like during the shooting by CW Wade from the Sandy Hook facts blog in case you were curious:

What a pleasant little diddy that was. Unfortunately Deep Throats Lanza inspired song trumps it in every aspect.

The song sounds like one of those parodies you’d hear on South Park...
