"Weapon Of Choice" as written by Peter Hayes and Robert Turner....
I've got a streak, and you want to loosen up
But there's no time to feast your eyes
You want it all, but the world won't give it up
Up to the edge, a star will rise

What is your weapon of choice
What's your weapon of choice
Where is the weapon to free us all us?
What is your weapon of choice
What's your weapon of choice
Where is the weapon to free us all?

I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation

Everyones got their own spent factions
Every bomb will pay its price
I've been digging in the wrong directions
Lets see you threaten the afterlife

What is your weapon of choice
What's your weapon of choice
There is the weapon to free us all us
What is your weapon of choice
What's your weapon of choice
There is a weapon to free us all

I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation

It's too hard to stand aside
Here's the love to stop your heart

I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation

    General CommentYes! I LOVE this song! I can relate to that feeling in everyway. "I won't waste my love on a nation." That sums up the whole song and also how I feel. BRMC never ceases to amaze me.

    General CommentThese are the lyrics on the official BRMC site:

    I gotta speak and you want to listen up
    There is no time to feast your eyes
    You want it all but the world won't give it up
    Up to the edge your star will rise

    What is your weapon of choice,
    What's your weapon of choice
    There is no weapon to free us all
    What is your weapon of choice,
    What's your weapon of choice
    There is no weapon to free us all

    I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
    I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation

    Everyone's got their own split factions
    Every pawn will pay it's price
    I've been digging out in all directions
    I'll see you through to the after life

    What is your weapon of choice,
    What's your weapon of choice
    There is no weapon to free us all
    What is your weapon of choice,
    What's your weapon of choice
    There is no weapon to free us all

    I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
    I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation

    It's to hard too stand aside
    It's enough to stop your heart

    I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
    I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
    I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation
    I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation

    General CommentThose lyrics make much more sense, that line
    "I won't waste it, I won't waste it, I won't waste my love on a nation"

    gotta be one of the best refrain/what-ever-you-call-it lines of all time. can't wait to see these guys in concert
