Song Description

Guns???? Gun Laws???

Story Behind the Song

I started writing this song after John Lennon was shot. What a waist of a beautiful life! And still we have more senseless killings than ever.

Lyrics

I think I finally got it figured
About the man who pulls the trigger
Shoot yourself, don't shoot me.
I think I finally understand
The one who hates his fellow man
Shoot yourself, don't shoot me. Don't shoot me.

Take every gun in the world
Bend the barrel till it's curled
Shoot yourself, don't shoot me.
Look in the mirror at your reflection
Take a shot in that direction
Shoot yourself, don't shoot me. Don't shoot me.

There's a ringing in my ear, don't shoot me
A siren ringging in my ear, don't shoot me
There's a ringing in my ear, don't shoot me.

Siren rings on Saturday
Telling me it still works O.K.
Siren rings on Saturday
My imagination blows away.
Siren ringing in my ear
Is this the last sound that I'll ever hear
Siren ringing in my ear
Telling me the bomb stops here.

I think I finally got it figured
About the man who pulls the trigger
Shoot yourself, don't shoot me.
Take every gun in the world
Bend the barrel till it's curled
Shoot yourself, don't shoot me.
Oh no, don't shoot me.
