lyrics

Shoot em up

Shoot em up again my love
You said this would be the end and that’s it, not again
These bullet holes I can’t mend when you’re gone

Hurt me like you hurt yourself
Just wars just tend to lead to more, wars
Cause fighting’s not so fun, when you’ve won

Baby I’ll dress up for you like the stories you sell
You’ll be the cowboy and me I’m the Indian going to hell
Makes no difference I can’t win cause I don’t have a gun
Got to run from you babe when you tell me to run
Babe I’ll never be a cowboy so why keep on chasing
The Indian

Bet your bottom dollar when you dealt
You had a play for every card so you’d win, hands down
If I fold I loose so much I have to play another round

My arms so bent from wrestling that I’m spent
Hope like hell a parlor girl will come catch your eye, just long enough
To shake my fists up to the sky and act like I’m tough

Baby I’ll dress up for you like the stories you sell
You’ll be the cowboy and me I’m the Indian going to hell
Makes no difference I can’t win cause I don’t have a gun
Got to run from you babe when you tell me to run
Babe I’ll never be a cowboy so why keep on chasing
The Indian
Palestinian
Now it’s the Muslim
We’re all Indian
