It's a matter of standing in one place 'til they tell you to run
How you gonna do under the gun?
The windows are barred, none of us can pull you through
None of us can lift you up

Uh oh, I know
It's gonna hurt
When you get just what you want
I'm not in the sea
Uh huh
It's gonna hurt
When you get what you want

I made it to the coast
Get the gun and go
I was on the loose
When you go
Get the gun and go
I was on the loose
When you go
Get the gun and go
I was on the loose

Everybody spit right in your face when you hit the ground
I think maybe you like me when I'm weak, so you keep me around
I'm alive, you're alive; it's a truce
You're so proud of being alone

I know
It's gonna hurt
When you get just what you want
I'm not in the sea
I'm clean
It's gonna hurt
When you get what you want

I made it to the coast
Get the gun and go
I was on the loose
When you go
Get the gun and go
I was on the loose
And ready to go
Get the gun and go
I was on the loose
When you go
Get the gun and go
Get the gun and go home

    General Comment"I'm not in the sea
    Uh huh"

    should be:

    "I'm not in the scene, i'm clean"


    "I was on the loose
    When you go"

    should be:

    "I was on the loose
    Where did you go"

    General CommentI love this one. It has an old gritty feel to it, like a black and white movie.
