"Shot In The Back" as written by Sterling Edmund Smith and Barry Joseph Goldberg....
And we go, where the words are found.
All the sayings, that we care about.
And I run, when you say,
That your word is the only honest way.

I can't wake,
Can't wake up.
I can't sleep,
Can't sleep.

Wake up,
Wake up,
Wake up.

So quickly dated.
You play the saint, I'll imitate it.
All that we hope for, so bow down.
The shot is your priest.

Why wait, I feel like god inside your embrace.
I'd be the gun as you are shot, shot, shot in the back.
I see the sun in splinters.
Why wait.

All the times,
All the ways,
And it cuts you from the start.
All the scars,
All the stains,
And it cuts into your side.
I've been down,
I've been saved,
And it hurts me everyday.
I bend down,
I'm a slave.

I can't wake,
Can't wake up.
I can't sleep.
Can't sleep.

Wake up,
Wake up,
Wake up.

I can't delay it.
We all go out medicated.
Can't change a timeline, so bow down.
The shot is release.

Why wait, I feel like god inside your embrace.
I'd be the gun as you are shot, shot, shot in the back.
I see the sun in splinters.
Why wait.

Shot, shot, shot in the back.
I see the sun in splinters.
Shot, shot, shot in the back.
I'd be the gun as you are shot, shot, shot in the back.
I feel like god inside your â?¦
Shot, shot, shot in the back.

    General CommentThis is a really really great song. I think it's about religon and how people fall into some of it's lies and how some people use their religon to justify some of the things they do.
