Military issue
now I can trust you're never gonna
raise another fist at me again
this is how I'll kiss you
hollow-tip to tissue
stronger than the sword and
so much faster than the pen

Fare thee well to the infidel
your God's name's not spelled the same

God gave me a gun
God gave me a gun
might makes right now
whom shall we smite now
bullet through the barrel
thy will be done
God gave me a gun

Screaming of the engines
bringing down the vengeance
hell from the heavens is state of the art
tell the ones you love
that the hawk's killed the dove
and I can save your soul
with a bullet through the heart

Fare thee well to the infidel
your God's name's not spelled the same
God gave me a gun
God gave me a gun
might makes right now
whom shall we smite now
bullet through the barrel

thy will be done
God gave me a gun
God gave me a gun

Made me in his image
bade me do some damage
now the grapes of wrath
are ripe on the vine
kill to make us holy
kill to make us free
take an eye for an eye
and make the whole world blind

Fare thee well to the infidel
your God's name's not spelled the same

God gave me a gun
God gave me a gun
might makes right now
whom shall we smite now
bullet through the barrel

thy will be done
God gave me a gun
God gave me a gun

Might makes right now
whom shall we smite now
bullet through the barrel
thy will be done
God gave me a gun

    General Commentif this doesn't scream anti-war i don't know what does. he's talking about how humans tend to think that some how we're justified in killing beyond just what we need to survive. it's the "might is right" theory, that the person in power some how feels justified to use justified because "god" gave it to them.
