Lyrics

3. Under The Gun

A hundred stories high
How does it feel, when your world breaks down?
When you notice there's a wall between
Where you are and where you want to be

When you're under the gun
Fire away
If there's nowhere to run
Make your own way 'round

It ends tonight
The money's green, but it won't make you complete
Who are you?
What makes you feel,
Who you are and who you want to be?

When you're under the gun
Fire away
If there's no where to run
Make your own way round

Fire away

When you're under the gun
Fire away
If there's nowhere to run
Make your own way round
When you're under the gun
Fire away
If there's nowhere to run
Make your own way round
