"Shoot Me Down" as written by and Chase/carr/peck/mahmood....
It's hard to say how I think in this life
I lost my way, lost my way, my own mind
You should've left, should've left on time
It's no mistake, no mistake you're mine

Shoot me down, when I
Hate to see you drown

I didn't do, didn't do, didn't do
I didn't do this for you cool
Didn't say, didn't say, didn't say
I didn't say this was to cool
I didn't do, didn't do, didn't do
I didn't do this for you cool
Didn't say, didn't say

You never knew, never knew, never knew
You never should, never should, never should
I needed someone, someone to be here, always and
When the suns down, don?t want to cut here you say

Shoot me down, when I
Hate to see you drown

I didn't do, didn't do, didn't do
I didn't do this for you cool
Didn't say, didn't say, didn't say
I didn't say this was to cool
I didn't do, didn't do, didn't do
I didn't do this for you cool

Shoot me down, when I
Hate to see you drown

It's hard to say how I think in this life
I lost my way, lost my way, my own mind

Teacher for me now
Tell me something I don?t know
Give me warning signs
It's a lie already know
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Tell me stories of old
About the games and queens of old
Teach me lullabies
And the tales that's never told
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Turn the pages, there's someone else to get here
Change the channel, there's someone left behind
And watch your words 'cause there's someone else behind you
Lets turn our backs, it's a crime, it's a crime, a crime, a crime

It's a half full glass, and the bells already told
It's a warning sign, is my blood really this cold
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Turn the pages, there's someone else to get here
Change the channel, there's someone left behind
And watch your words 'cause there's someone else behind you
Lets turn our backs, it's a crime, it's a crime, a crime, a crime

Spin a web to pass the time
Perhaps I'll call two friends of mine
And if it's all the same to you
We'll skip the fables of the past
All the pieces left behind
Begin to tease the piece of mind
Is this how this is meant to be
Broken bones belong to

You don't know me x12

This older skies has broken back
It's no surprise they all evac
They may suppose it brings to you
The chance to see through all the sides
A thousand laughs, a thousand smiles
A thousand tears lost in the files
Where's the sense in holding on
For yesterday's already gone

Oh we try
Already gone
Don't look back

    General CommentWhat do you guys think? I've been trying to figure out the two minute pause between the two segments. Maybe it's supposed to be a song in itself, using silence to mark the profound. Or maybe it's showing a passing of time.

    The first part seems sad because 'you' (in the terms of the song) didn't leave on time. Since they didn't leave on time, something bad happened to them (drowned or metaphor for scrambling towards something, trying to gain footing). The second part seems like later, later in life and later in the song. The narrator seems to be looking back on their life and trying to determine some sense out of it. "you don't know me". well, does he really know hisself?

    General CommentI instantly fell in love with this song! It's the only song I really like from their album. However, I'm confused by some of the verses, can anyone help with its meaning?

    General Comment> When the suns down, don’t want to cut here you say

    I think this verse is supposed to be:
    When the sun's down, someone to pick up pieces

    I'm not sure either what song means, but I also love it and BKB.

    General CommentNot that it reli matters coz "landsickwhale"'s comment was 2 years ago. but the 2 minute pause is coz the 2nd part is a hiden track called "Exit." However i do like the idea bout the pasing of time looking back.
