about

It's so easy to take a life and change the world forever.

lyrics

Half-cocked I hunt the strong
The chamber full and the barrel long
While boots run the streets
Yeah I'm pulling up flowers and planting weeds

Revel in the flame
Such a God damn shame
I should have been taking stock
But I was taking aim

Now I stand so self-assured
I feel the world in my hands like clay
Finger on the trigger
Eyes on the ground
And an inside track running down the drain

It would clot your bleeding heart
To see the things that I have seen
The dried up husk of a society
Living on its hands and knees

Revel in the flame
Such a God damn shame
I should have been taking stock
But I was taking aim

Now I stand so self-assured
I feel the world in my hands like clay
Finger on the trigger
Eyes on the ground
And an inside track running down the drain

Yeah the world grows colder now
With the sweat of the trigger beating on its brow
I come above the crowd
And if I can't lead then I'll tear it down

Revel in the flame
Such a God damn shame
I should have been taking stock
But I was taking aim

Now I stand so self-assured
I feel the world in my hands like clay
Finger on the trigger
Eyes on the ground
And an inside track running down the drain

Revel in the flame
Such a God damn shame
I should have been taking stock
But I was taking aim

Now I stand so self-assured
I feel the world in my hands like clay
Finger on the trigger
Eyes on the ground
And an inside track running down the drain
