The gun rules


Stop, Stop
Please don't pull the trigger
You think I don't understand, you fool
The gun rules

You can claim my land
I will understand
You think I care about the money
Dive as you need into my honey

For I know
The gun rules
and heads must bow

The gun rules
Say yes, not no

The gun rules
Powerful than fistful blows

The gun rules
Nice and slow

The gun rules
Its handler glows

The gun rules
lay down, lie low

The gun rules
as red blood flows

You think I do not know the difference
between the gun, arrow and the bow
You sit like an angry king on your throne
ordering the rolling of heads and bones
This is the time of the gun
This is its timezone

Stop, Stop
Please don't pull the trigger
Lose not your cool, you fool

The guns rules
The perfect master of disguise
I have been to school and I am wise
A life in one piece
Is worth more
Than the risk of hit and miss
So all I ask of you is to let me go

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
