"Pass The Gun Around" as written by and Cooper/wagner....
Sonny wakes up in the morning feeling kinda sick
Needs a little Stoli Vodka, needs it really quick
Sees a little blood run from his eyes
Feels a little hotel paralyzed

Pass the gun around
Give everyone a shot...give everyone a shot, you gotta
Pass the gun around
And throw me in the local river, let me float away

I wake up watching cartoons...the television's on
There's a couple of party balloons and all my money's gone
She was just a reason to unwind
And actually the last thing I could find

Why don't you, pass the gun around
Give everyone a shot...give everyone a shot, you better
Pass the gun around
And dump me in the local river, let me float away
float away, ah float away

Pass the gun around
Give everyone a shot...give everyone a shot, why don't you
Pass the gun around
Throw me in the local river, let me float away

Sonny wakes up in the morning, there's a stranger in his bed
Someone's pounding on the hotel door, he wishes he was dead
I've had so many blackout nights before
I don't think I can take this anymore

Why don't you, pass the gun around
Give everyone a shot...give everyone a shot, why don't you
Pass the gun around
Give everyone a shot...give everyone a shot, we're gonna
Pass the gun around

Give everyone a shot...give everyone a shot, we're gonna
Pass the gun around
Give everyone a shot...give everyone a shot, you gotta
Pass the gun around
Give everyone a shot...give everyone a shot, you gotta
Pass the gun around
Give everyone a shot...give everyone a shot, you gotta
Pass the gun around

Da Da

    General CommentHelp me here people, is a heroin needle really sometimes called a "gun"? Or is this just a cheap way to add a twist ending to the song?

    General CommentNo... it's literally about alcoholism. The gun, is the bottle of Stoli... pass the gun around, give everyone a shot, give everyone a shot...

    General CommentThink you guys are reading too much into it!!
    He had a party in his hotel room with a prostitute and things were so bad he shot himself. You can hear the gun shot right at the end of the song.

    General CommentGiven that it's the last track from a concept album about a man who kills to feed his cannibal brother, I think it's about the main character killing himself when his life gets too dark.

    General CommentNo it's simply about alcoholism. Readthe lyrics again, it's very straightforward. The bloodshot eyes, the blackout nights, waking up wishing he was dead, the double meaning for "shot" dloating away etc... Alice was just about at his worst at this point, he says he doesn't remember making this album
