lyrics

Gun, a gun, someone's got a gun
You hear the needle drop and you start to run.

Wake wake, now you're wide awake
Wrapped up in a blanket trying not to shake.
Shake shake, when you going to break?
Adding up the tally for your mistakes

You don't hear anything
You don't see anything
You don't know anything at all
Until the fall

Shout, shout, why you gotta shout?
Bullets in your mouth... spit ‘em out
Out, out, put the fire out
You started a parade, now it's a rout

All of those things you say
You never meant to say
You can’t pretend to take them back
Once you’ve attacked

Rats chasing sparrows on the streetcar tracks
Smoke chasing flames from blue to black
Now all the gold in your pocket
will not bring your baby back.

Like a half-heard lyric in a half-awake song
Like half-forgotten stories in a half-dead town.
You keep shouting
but only the echoes are clear

And you want to turn it back, don't you?
And you want to turn it back, don't you?
And you want to turn it back,
to where it all began...
