My smile is a rifle
Won't you give it a try?
La la la ... ah
So you like the way we dance maybe
When notes come to you, ooh ooh
You know I love you
You are all over me, oh yeah ...

- solo -

My smile is a rifle
And what are you?
My smile is a rifle
I'm pointing it at you
My smile is a rifle
You're always you ...

    General CommentI interpret it as whenever he's happy it hurts other people; "His smile is a rifle." More often than not in life to ascend ourselves we step on the backs of others. He feels that if hes happy someone else isn't. The time he wrote this he was on the road with the peppers and was miserable, but he knew the things he wanted to change would make others unhappy.

    General Commentmaybe he's talking about being two faced; like, yeah, he can smile at you but maybe his intentions aren't what you think they are?

    General CommentThis song is probably about heroin. Maybe the rifle he's pointing is a needle.
