"Laughing" as written by Michael E. Abel, Kevin Ingleson, Mark Thompson and John Andrew Wilson....
My baby says
We can live in the empty spaces of this life
My baby says
Far away the stars are coming all undone
My baby says
My baby says, But that's far away
And we're young
My baby says
And if the devil comes we'll shoot him with a gun

My baby says
We can live in the empty spaces of this life
My baby says
In the desert sands
Our hearts are brighter than the sun
My baby says
When the devil comes we'll shoot him with a gun
My baby says
My baby says, And if he shows his face
We'll laugh

    My InterpretationIt seems to me the line at 2:30 -- "My baby said if the devil comes, we'll shoot him with a gun" -- was directly inspired by Terrence Malick's 1973 film "Badlands." Speaking of Martin Sheen's character, Kit, Sissy Spacek's character, Holly, says this at one point when they are on the run: "He said that if the devil came at me, I'd shoot him with a gun." In fact, the whole song can be seen as inspired by the film. I love both Ubu and "Badlands!"
