Shotgun Lungs

lyrics

What's your name
Who gives a shit
What's your cause
Let me make a list
What's your pride?
My family, and everyone else who's thicker than blood.

What's your sign?
Who gives a shit
What have you lost
Don't want to think of it
What's the time?
It's time to leave all my dead dreams
at my father's feet.

All hope may be lost for me
All the more reason to speak freely

I'll load my lungs up like a shotgun
Blast my words at every fear and doubt
I want to drench my pain in distortion
and spit it out, spit out!

I've tried to deny the feeling that's burning deep inside
but despite how I have tried, they've put up a fight and now I'm back where I began

Taking a vow of silence never did me any good
It's no longer what I want to do, it's what I should
After all these years I can't just take a seat
I'll leave my dead dreams at my father's feet

All hope may be lost for me
All the more reason to speak freely

I'll load my lungs up like a shotgun
Blast my words at every fear and doubt
I want to drench my pain in distortion
and spit it out, spit out!

I'll send my old life away
I'll send it far from me
Because I can only make a change when I'm ready
to turn the page.
