Under the Gun

May 29th, 2013 (07:07 pm)

Been listening to A Slight Case of Overbombing today. That was a pleasant blast from the past - I've not properly listened to the Sisters for a while, but I've had Dr Jeep earworming me a bit for the last few days, so.

Anyway, yeah, have a huge chunk of the lyrics to Under the Gun (most of which I can't make out on listening to it, so confession: swiped 'em from a lyrics site):

Forget the many steps to heaven
It never happened and it ain't so hard
Happiness is a loaded weapon and a
Short cut is better by far
Explosive bolts, ten thousand volts
At a million miles an hour
Abrasive wheels and molten metals
It's a semi-automatic, get in the car
Corrosive heart and frozen heat
We're worlds apart where we could meet
Where the street fold round and the motors start
And the idiot wields the power
Where the chosen hold the highest card
On the field of honour where the ground is hard
So the highest hand is joking wild
And the house soon fold and no one stand
I put my finger on and dialled
The tower, the moon, the gun and
Nine nine nine, singer down
Cloudburst and all around
The first are last, the blessed get wired
The best is yet to come
I put my finger on and fired
Heat-seeking, out of the sun
You can set the controls for the heart or the knees
And the meek'll inherit what they damn well please
Get ahead, go figure, go ahead and pull the trigger
Everything under the gun

And a link. sadly I can't find a way to get the embed code on the iPad, so it's just the URL:
