I know the only feeling you have is rage
And I know that I'd feel the same as you, but
I think you'd better take a good look around you 'cause
You're so pissed you can't even find your drink

Sometimes it's wise
To know which way the gun is pointing
Before you yell, "I see the whites of their eyes."
Sometimes you'll find your senses all disjointed by
The lines and wires of salesmen, cheats and liars

Well she left, without one word of tenderness
And no one saw you cry but me
Your friends heard you say, "Good riddance, I'm better without her." but
'Fess up, you thought about diving into the Don

Sometimes it's wise
To know which way the car is going
Before you put your pedal down to the floor
Sometimes you'll find your senses all disjointed by
The lines and wires of salesmen, cheats and liars

Well, hello friend
I caught you laughin' again, but
Don't worry, your secret's safe with me
It's so strange that everybody's so caught up in
Worrying that they ain't what we want 'em to be

Sometimes it's wise
To know which way the gun is pointing
Before you yell, "I see the whites of their eyes."
Sometimes you'll find your senses all disjointed by
The lines and wires of salesmen, cheats and liars

    General CommentI won't sully this song by interpreting it, but "the Don" is the Don River that goes through Toronto, Ontario, where Lowest of the Low are from.

    General CommentTo add on, they had to put a barrier up on the Bloor Viaduct that stopped people from committing suicide by jumping off the bridge and into the Don river, or the Don Vallyey Parkway, below. So 'Diving into the Don' is a suicide attempt.

    I love the little references to Toronto in the Low's lyrics.

    God, I wish I didn't spend my life feeling like this song was speaking to me directly.

    Sometimes, it really is wise to know which way the gun is pointing. All the time, actually.
