"Get Your Guns" as written by and James/forrest Galley....
Two summers with the light on
Too tired to fall asleep
Too dumb to keep your clothes on
Too cynical to speak

Is there any wonder why I bother?
Hanging round to take the pain
Is there any wonder why I bother?
Hanging round for you to feel the same

Cause in my world I couldnt wait
Turn you round to your face
For a time
For a place to do you wrong
So get your guns

Her picture in your pocket
Her memory at your door
Too tired to unlock it
Too scared to ask for more

Is there any wonder why I bother?
Hanging round to take the pain
Is there any wonder why I bother?
Coming down for you to fix the blame

Cause in my world I couldnt wait
Turn you round to your face
For a time
For a place to do you wrong
So get your guns

Yeah
Run
Yeah
Yeah

Is there any wonder why I bother?
Hanging round to take the pain
Is there any wonder why I bother?
Hanging round for you to feel the same

Cause in my world I couldnt wait
Turn you round to your face
For a time
For a place to do you wrong
So get your guns

So get your gun
So get your gun
So get your gun

    General CommentThe song is about how everyone's completely scared of everything nowadays, what with terrorism and all.

    So get your guns.

    General CommentI don't think its about terrorism - I think it's actually quite a personal song...

    General Commentyea, i too think it is a personal song, its probably about an ex-girlfriend who a person cannot get over his ex-lover and cannot take the pain anymore... so he shoots himself.

    General CommentI recall Sam saying it was about long-distance relationships.
    If you look back at the lyrics again, you can kind of see that.
