"Gravemakers and Gunslingers" as written by Claudio Sanchez and Travis Stever....
So draw, little piggy, better watch out for number one
(I fear there's a bad wind blowing through here!)
You better put up the shudders cause Lord knows
Now I ain't stoppin' ?till the worst gets alive
Little strutter don't you creep out that fuckin' rut
(It's best that you don't go walking through there)
Now please a don't bother knockin'
Cause God knows I ain't now stopping 'till you breathe none

Hey!
What I miss?
We're one and the same

Just give it the push while I kick-start
(There?s just no time for this)
Come on! Its just the hurt I'm looking for
I don't wanna live no more
You've got the gun, I've got the bullets
Don't wanna live no more
Oh baby, be my lover
Go on and pull that trigger!

You're the sin of this city, now repent for the wrong you've done
(I'm not sorry for this, not sorry at all)
You're a snake under cover
No room for another just these bad motherfuckers'
Leave a long trail of nothing, little bad boy with gun in hand
(Its best that you don?t go walking through there)
Now please a come boy a poppin'
Cause God knows I ain't now stopping 'till you breathe none

Hey!
What I miss?
We?re one and the same

Just give it the push while I kick-start
(There's just no time for this)
Come on! Its just the hurt I'm looking for
I don't wanna live no more
You've got the gun, I've got the bullets
Don't wanna live no more
Oh baby, be my lover
Go on and pull that trigger!

Let flood out the weasels hole, (Oh, Christ will you bury my body?)
To choke out all the lies it's told, (Oh, Christ will you bury my body?)
With time, hope the hurt gets old, (Oh, Christ will you bury my body?)
Let's fuck out the weasel's hole, (Oh, Christ will you bury my body?)

We'll keep marching to the top of this tower
As God isn't at home, no
There's nothing in the way that could stop us
It's your time to go

Hey!
What I miss?
We?re one and the same

Just give it the push while I kick-start
(There's just no time for this)
Come on! Its just the hurt I'm looking for
I don't wanna live no more
You've got the gun, I've got the bullets
Don't wanna live no more
Oh baby, be my lover
Go on and pull that trigger!

I don't wanna live no more
Go on and pull that trigger!
Don't wanna live no more
Be my lover go on and pull that trigger!

    General CommentThis is what I hear for the first part, more or less:

    So go. Little piggy, better watch out for number one.
    I'm feeling there's a bad wind blowing through there.
    You better pull up the shutters because lord knows now I ain't stomping through the woods, it's alive.
    Little darling, don't you creep out that fucking runt.
    It's best that you don't go walking through there.
    Now please, don't bother knocking because God's knows I ain't now stoping until you breathe no
    Hey
    Would I miss you, one and the same?

    Just give it the push while I kick start
    There's just no time for this,
    Come on, it's just the herd I'm looking for.
    Don't want to live no more.
    You've got the gun, I've got the bullets
    Don't want to live no more.
    Well baby be my lover, go on and pull that trigger.

    General CommentHere's the complete parts I got.
    Chorus: "What I need is (one in the same?)
    Just give it a push while I kick-start
    Theres just no time for this
    Come on, it’s just the ???? I’m looking for
    Don’t want to live no more
    You’ve got the gun, I’ve got the bullets
    Don’t want to live no more
    Baby be my lover go on and pull that trigger"

    And the final verse/outro, whatever you want to call it (after the last solo).

    "We’ll keep marching to the top of this tower
    As god isn’t at home
    There’s nothing in the way that can stop us
    It’s your time to go"

    This song is BITCHIN'!

    General CommentThat's alright. I'm not sure I have the first verse 100%, but I'm confident on most of it. Anyway. . . yeah. I think this is the second versey bit:

    You’ve sinned another city
    Now you’ll pay for the wrong you’ve done
    I’m not sorry for this, I’m not sorry at all

    Are you a snake undercover
    With the wolf or another
    Just these bad motherfuckers

    Leave a long trail of nothing
    Little bad boy with gun in hand
    It’s best that you don’t go walking through there

    Now please, a convoy or your papa
    Because God knows I ain’t now stopping until you breathe no more
    Hey

    General CommentGood job on the lyrics everyone, they look pretty good from what I can hear. Anyway I can't tell if I love or hate this song.

    General CommentI'm so disappointed in this and The Running Free both.
    I mean, they're good, but not by Coheed standards.

    General Commentoutside of the context of the rest of the album I can definately see why people wouldn't like The Running Free...I think it's going to be the "Blood Red Summer" or "The Suffering" of NWFT - the poppy radio single. However, when you put play it as part of the album as a whole I'm sure it will blend much better just like the previously mentioned songs do. Such is the way of concept albums. This song, however, I think is great. It's definately got a different feel to it - a little more of a groove than most Coheed songs. Overall the release of these two songs has completely reignited my excitement for this new album just like "Welcome Home" did before Good Apollo came out. I think No World for Tomorrow is going to be brilliant and can't wait to hear what Chris Pennie brings to the mix.
