"Shots" as written by Jon Nite, Ross Copperman and Christopher Young....
Ringing all along the borders can be heard
Striking out like a venom in the sky
Cutting through the air faster than a bird
In the night.

Are lost in the sand, building roads with little hands
Trying to join their father's castles together again
Will they make it? Who knows where or when
Old wounds will mend?

Are winding their way along, looking strong
Building roads and bringing back loads and loads
Of building materials
In the night

Are trying to move the borders on the ground
Lines between the different spots that each has found
But back home another scene was going down
In the night.

Comes creepin' through the night to feed on hearts
Of suburban wives who learned to pretend
When they met their dream's end
In the night.

I hear shots, I keep hearing shots
I keep hearing shots
I hear shots.

I hear shots, I keep hearing shots
I keep hearing shots
I hear shots.

But I'll never use your love,
You know I'm not that kind
And so if you give your heart away
I promise to you
Whatever we do
That I will always be true.

    General CommentThe meaning has got to be about Vietnam or just wars in general and how there's nothing good about'em.

    This is one his best written songs. The electric version is fun, but the acoustic version is much better (YouTube it!).

    Along with a slower tempo and a short harmonica solo, the lyrics differ in the acoustic version too. He starts with the Children verse instead and ends with it too. There's also a bridge before ending verse and after the Lust verse...

    "I'll never use your love, you know I'm not like that
    So if you give your heart to me
    I promise to you, whatever we do
    That I will always be true"
