"Shotgun" as written by and Graham/st. John Fink....
1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 4

It's a shotgun, baby
I think I'll use it tonight
It's a shutdown, maybe
I got you in my sight

It's just a shadow, baby
It can't come to life
But it's the shadows, baby
They're quickest with the knife

If I was a robot
Would you love me anymore
If I wore a mask would you know
If I was a robot
Would you love me anymore
If I wore a mask

It's a contract, baby
We're gonna make you sign
It's your choice now, maybe
But you could die tonight

It's a whisper, baby
When your ears are blind
It's a scream, baby
We don't want your kind

If I was a robot
Would you love me anymore
If I wore a mask would you know
If I was a robot
Would you love me anymore
If I wore a mask

    General CommentI'm not very sure on what it means but the guy probably wants to hurt whoever "baby" is...

    General CommentI always thought this song was about a "shotgun" wedding.

    General CommentI feel like it's about a relationship that's based on lies and the guy wants to know whether or not "baby" is willing to break down their walls, or so i understand.

    My InterpretationObviously it is to a girl. From the chorus you can get an easy answer, I think. The person singing the song wants to be real. 1)Robots are fake and always do what they're told, right? 2)Masks are only worn to hide who you really are. So, overall I think he's asking that if he were more controllable like a robot and fake like he was hiding behind a mask would she like him more.
