"Shoot You Down" as written by Ian George Brown and John Squire....
You know it
You show it
And the time has come
To shoot you down
What a sound
When the day is done
And it all works out

I'd love to do it and you know you've always had it coming

You know it
You show it
And the time has come
To shoot you down
What a sound
When the day is done
And it all works out

I'd love to do it and you know you've always had it coming

I never wanted
The love that you showed me
It started to choke me
And how I wish I'd said
No too slow
I couldn't take
That too fast
I want you to know

You know it
You show it
But I can't back down
It's far too late
I can't wait
Now the time has come
It'll all work out
And when this
Thing is done
It'll leave no doubt
So when you've
Had your fun
Will you all walk out ?

I'd love to do it and you know you've always had it coming
I'd love to do it and you know you've always had it coming
I'd love to do it and you know you've always had it coming

    General CommentWhen I was younger and still seeing the world through puberty-colored glasses, I thought this song was about sex. But now I realize it's about wanting to punch someone out. A very therapeutic song.
