"I Shot William H. Macy" as written by and Palumbo....
You wanna pop pop pop
You wanna click click click
You wanna shoot
You wanna shoot
You wanna shoot
Shoot everything you came to shoot
Do everything you came to do

Yeah
I'll put assassins in your little head yeah
Yeah
I'll put assassins in your little head yeah

Sleepin' with the enemy
Seems to get the best of me
Sleepin' with the enemy

You wanna pop pop pop
You wanna click click click
You wanna shoot
You wanna shoot
You wanna shoot

Yeah
I'll put assassins in your little head yeah

Sleepin' with the enemy
Seems to get the best of me
Sleepin' with the enemy

Yeah
I'll put assassins in your little head yeah
Yeah
I'll put assassins in your little head yeah
Yeah
I'll put assassins in your little head yeah
Yeah
I'll put assassins in your little head yeah

    General Commentit seems to me that the song is about mind games in a relationship and pushing someone's buttons. "shoot everything you came to shoot, do everything you came to do" is a taunt. "you wanna pop pop pop", etc. refers to the other person reaching a boiling point. "i'll put assassins in your little head" suggests that the person knows just how to get the other pissed off and pushes their buttons. "sleeping with the enemy" refers to the coexistence of a bad relationship (through head games) along with the romantic relationship. great song, and the lyrics flow really well.

    General CommentSOO incredibly catchy. I was recently turned onto this band and LOVE the album. Does anyone know if they recorded anything else besides the full-length LP?

    General Commenti just saw head automatica in seattle on the 25th.. and it was one of the best shows i've ever been to. especially, when they performed this song. the crowd went crazy! i find this song so catchy.. yet, the lyrics are definitly about mind games in a relationship. uh, so good to dance to! :)
