"Guns.Guns...Guns" as written by and John Baldwin Gourley....
Where have all the people gone
Whose lives are no longer of use to them?
But this system by its habit forming myths
But this single file is so contagious
Black eyes breed gossip like
These perverts and perversions alike
Just like this perverts and perversions

Hibernate while you're still young
You are getting older
So much older
So much older than you think still
Not far but years away
Your hands'll snake out in a serpent smile

Crank the tap.
Itch.
Brimming with suspicions
The burrows are brimming with suspicions

Where have all the people gone
Whose guns are gold cold son of a bitch
“I'll travel anywhere I like"
He says "I'll travel anywhere I please.”
Your guns, big guns, suck life.
These perverts and perversions alike
Just like this perverts and perversions

Hibernate while you're still young
You are getting older
So much older
So much older than you think still
Not far but years away
Your hands'll snake out in a serpent smile

Crank the tap.
Itch.
Brimming with suspicions
The burrows are brimming with suspicions

Where have all the trumpets gone,
that played us "la-da da-da-daaa"?

The priest’s on the boat
And hell is on its way

    General CommentThere are some lyrics missing. It should be:

    Where have all the people gone
    Whose lives are no longer of use to them?
    But this system by its habit forming myths
    But this single file is so contagious
    Black eyes breed gossip like
    These perverse and perversions alike
    Just like this perverse and perversions

    Hibernate while you're still young
    You are getting older
    So much older
    So much older than you think still
    Not far but years away
    Your hands'll snake out in a serpent smile

    Crank the tap.
    Itch.
    Brimming with suspicions
    The burrows are brimming with suspicions

    Where have all the people gone
    Whose guns are gold cold son of a bitch
    “I'll travel anywhere I like"
    He says "I'll travel anywhere I please.”
    Your guns, big guns, suck life.
    These perverse and perversions alike
    Just like this perverse and perversions

    Hibernate while you're still young
    You are getting older
    So much older
    So much older than you think still
    Not far but years away
    Your hands'll snake out in a serpent smile

    Crank the tap.
    Itch.
    Brimming with suspicions
    The burrows are brimming with suspicions

    Where have all the trumpets gone,
    that played us "la-da da-da-daaa"?

    General Commentthis seems to be about the pressures to conform as you grow older, whether it be in the music industry or in other aspects in life. and the "itch" we have to "travel" anywhere we'd like.

    the reference to a priest suggests that society preaches how we all should live our lives.

    General CommentTo me this song is about how easy and contagious it is to falll into the "system" -"But this system bites habit forming
    But this single file is so contagious" and theres no more original people" Where have all the people gone
    Whose guns are gold cold son of a bitch " they all just fall into the "system" and don't care about being themselves cause it's easier to just fall in line.

    General CommentAlso it sounds more like "But this system BITES habit forming myths" but thats just me

    by the way this is one of my favorite songs on the cd
    it just grooves right with me...if that makes any sence.

    General CommentConforming into society even when you want to do other things because it's easier and it's almost as if it's out of default. Also knowing that conforming is bleak but it's inevitable. D:
