lyrics

the night that I was stabbed in the alley by the church
my blood spilled red and innocent, didn't seem to know it hurt
but when it realized what had happened and it turned to come back in
my veins closed off and said "sorry kid, but I think this is the end"

promise me the world and take it back when it's too much
show me love but don't get upset when I don't realize it is such
keep me calm when I'm mess and tell me it's okay
because I'm always worried I won't see the next day

I'm a six shooter pistol
I'm the barrel of a gun
there's a lot of moving targets
I can only aim at one

on my eighteenth birthday I will buy some cigarettes
and I will sit out on the front porch and smoke myself to death
and the ghosts, they will welcome me and call out my name
because when I wake up the next time, it won't be quite the same

sometimes I think that we are only doomed to die
but other times you know I would rather live than lie
in a dark and wooden box buried six feet underground
where only the roots are able to make a sound

I'm a six shooter pistol
I'm the barrel of a gun
there's a lot of moving targets
I can only aim at one

you look so goddamn selfless but you left me there to die
and I hope that I'm there when it's your turn to try
and I'm sorry that I loved you and I'm sorry that you didn't
but now I think it's almost my turn to be innocent

I'm a six shooter pistol
I'm the barrel of a gun
there's a lot of moving targets
I can only aim at one
