Step into a world of strangers
Into a sea of unknowns
Even friends potential danger
Secrets wound around their bones

Everybody else has got one
Packin’ high caliber heat
If you don’t wanna be dancin’
You don’t dare miss the beat

Keep the hammer back, hammer back
Don’t keep the safety on
Keep the hammer back, hammer back
’Til the living shadow’s gone

Maybe at a Seven-Eleven
Maybe at a quick carjack
You’ll verify there ain’t a heaven
If you don’t keep the hammer back

Keep the hammer back, hammer back
Don’t keep the safety on
Keep the hammer back, hammer back
’Til the living shadow’s gone

Keep the hammer back, hammer back
Don’t keep the safety on
Keep the hammer back, hammer back
’Til the living shadow’s gone

Hammer back, hammer back
Don’t keep the safety on
Keep the hammer back, hammer back
’Til the living shadow’s gone

Keep the hammer back, hammer back
Don’t keep the safety on
Keep the hammer back, hammer back
’Til the living shadow’s gone

Keep the hammer back, hammer back
Hammer back, hammer back
Ha ha ha

    General CommentGuns definitely, but not necceaarily paranoia. All of these dangers are very real. My own brother was shot by his best friend, so it's true that "even friends potential dangers". I'm a cop, so I see the dangers of society first hand, and there are many crimes that are commited that could have been stopped if only a single person nearby had been carrying a concealed firearm.
    This actually does happen, a person stops a crime with their personal firearm, but it never makes the news.

    General CommentA feeling that you have to be prepared at all times, because the world is a dangerous and uncertain place.
