My inspiration
My personal assassin
The one responsible for my life, my death
Is you, my assassin monkey
Is you, my assassin monkey

You held your revolver
Certain closure
Behind your back
Behind your armani surplus suit
You're my assassin monkey

From the moment you half smiled
At my pathetic self loathing
I was born, condemned to death
When you laugh, you make no sound
A silence that has condemned me to death
You're my assassin monkey

You held your revolver
Certain closure
Behind your back
Behind your armani surplus suit
You're my assassin monkey

You wield it like a child
Who has found his daddy's gun
You act below the influence

You wield it like a child
Who has found his daddy's gun
You act below the influence

You wield it like a child
Who has found his daddy's gun
You act below the influence

You wield it like a child
Who has found his daddy's gun
You act below the influence
And I don't care x4
You're my assassin monkey
And I don't care
I don't care x3
You're my assassin monkey

You held your revolver
Certain closure
Behind your back
Behind your armani surplus suit
You're my assassin monkey

You held your revolver
Certain closure
Behind your back
Behind your armani surplus suit
You're my assassin monkey

    General CommentI think this song is about how people weild their "gun"... That is, the power they have over another.

    Almost like in "Cute Without the 'e' (cut from the team)" by TBS when he asks "and will you tell all your friends you've got your gun to my head?" It's the assertion over power over another inherent in relationships.

    There's also this nasty bit about his "pathetic self loathing", and her (I assume it's her) finding humor in it. Maybe he thinks she's lead him on? Maybe he thinks she doesn't know he gave her false hope. It is, after all, the hope that starts the broken hearts.

    Great song. This should be the title of their LP.
