Palooka: What

Shiny New Gun

Words and Music by Glen Logan © 2009


 

Verse 1:

Cracking the sky, a sound,
With a vengeful ring it slams home today, far more lethal than the words you waste.
All your life, beat down.
So it's today that the bill is paid for the ache that never fades.

Chorus 1:

You're not a hero,
You've got no glory,
You're nothing thing more than a very sad story.
Does it make your day when they run from you and your shiny, your Shiny New (Gun)?
Can you make them understand.
How the cool steel feels in your sweaty hands.
Do they scream as they run from you and your shiny, your Shiny New Gun?

Verse 2:

Wrapping wrong, in a cause,
Doesn't bring light to the dark, even when your shot has hit its mark.
Callous and cold, today,
Looking in your sight did you see her eyes, is your right now justified?

Chorus 2:

You're not a hero,
You've got no glory,
You're nothing more than a very sad story.
Do they scream as they run from you and your shiny, your Shiny New Gun?

Post Break Outro. Repeat 3 times:

She's so shiny,
She's so mighty,
Was she the only one who loved you?
Was her love true?
