And we'll grip each other tight
In this desolate canteen
That' sells his life at a price
That I'm not prepared to pay
[to pay]
go ahead and shoot us it'll only take one bullet
Go ahead and shoot us
(x2)

In this desolate cantine
I'll sell his life at a price
But I'm not prepared to pay
[to pay]

Go ahead and shoot us it'll only take one bullet
Go ahead and shoot us
(x2)

[Bah bah bah bah bah bahh]

Get your needle out and your black cotton
And stitch us back together again
(x2)
Stitch us back together again

But that stitch it'll only last one life

Oh shit!
What a-bout the o-thers?

    General CommentAnyone here seen the film Elephant?

    It's about the Columbine disaster, and at the end you see the killer in a kitchen/canteen with two school kids,

    Made me think of that, maybe that's the connection?

    They say the killers were drove to do what they did because of jealousy of the "popular" kids so that could explain the title, and the obvious link with guns.

    Just a random guess!

    General CommentYeah i agree that it is about the Columbine disaster.

    I dont think they was jealous of the popular kids. They just didnt fit in and the boys found themselves frequently picked on by athletes and other students.

    General CommentI Don't Know Why, But I Think It's About the "Jealous Man" Who Has Discovered His Wife/Girlfriend Or Whoever Is Having An Affair. The Lyrics Are Saying "Go Ahead And Shoot Us, It'll Only Take One bullet" Because they Have A "Connection" And If One Dies, The Other Does Too, In Either A Emotional Way Or A Physical Way. And There Are Some Other Allusions. Although The Columbine Idea Makes Sense Also. Seeing These Guys in A Month! =D
