What,what was so bad?
What had he done?
To make you return
This time with a gun

Intimidation growing bigger.
What the hell made u pull the trigger?

Spend a lifetime
You want it? You got it? You feel it?
Gun in hand.
Trying to understand.
You want it? You got it? You feel it?
Gun in hand
Why you reason
You want it? You got it? You feel it?
Gun in hand
With a gun in hand

Thought this all through,
Thought it might be fun.
Shot in the head
To show everyone.

Intimidation growing bigger.
What the hell made u pull the trigger?

Spend a lifetime
You want it? You got it? You feel it?
Gun in hand.
Trying to understand.
You want it? You got it? You feel it?
Gun in hand
Why you reason
You want it? You got it? You feel it?
Gun in hand
With a gun in hand

Held in his friends arms.
Blood on his face.
Hole in his head.
Gripped by deaths embrace.
Embrace
Embrace

Spend a lifetime
You want it? You got it? You feel it?
Gun in hand.
Trying to understand.
You want it? You got it? You feel it?
Gun in hand
Why you reason
You want it? You got it? You feel it?
Gun in hand
With a gun in hand
With a gun in hand
With a gun in hand
With a gun in hand
With a gun in hand...

    General Commentby far my favorite Stutterfly song. Obviousely about suicide, and how its not the right way to go about a hard life. The lyrics just embrace me, and hold me there, along with the music. This song alone could make Stutterfly one of my favorite bands, the others are just added support, all which i love.

    General Commentyea, SilentScream is right. Yours makes more sense, and I just received my Broken In Pieces cd today, and noticed the dedication to their friend. These lyrics are very meaningful and powerful, they sort of make you appreciate your life and the friendships and relationships you have with others. Beautiful song.

    General CommentI hadn't heard of this band until I found out they were playing Spokane with Elderstaar. And then I listened to all their music, this song is crazy (can't think of a better word right now) HOLY SHIZA, what a rad song.

    General Commentstutterfly's a really good band... shame few people have heard of them in the US, since they're a canadian band and all... but i hear they're gearing up for a US tour, so hopefully that will change :)

    General CommentOne of my friends knows the lead singer and she asked him what the song means. He told her a story about one night when he watched his best friend get shot and then his friend fell and died in his arms while he embraced him. He wrote this song about that night.
