Welcome to rock bottom
The only part of the world for you
And yes it seems
That this situation
Is far from resolving
And this city is falling apart at the seems
And all I can do is wait and see
With the biggest smile upon my face I bare to witness
The grind and pound
Of human flesh undoubtedly at the hands of a madman

But if they find the bullet
You'll be responsible for this
You will be responsible
The killing of an innocent man
And the cold of the city kills my skin
With the poison of pleasure is wearing us down to the bone
And I'm worn so thin that I just can't move
And I'm worn so thin that I just can't move at all

Wake up
Hang the noose maker
And kick away the stool beneath his feet
Beneath his feet
And make your way to the party
Like nothing happened at all

THIS IS GUN CITY
As I run I know it
WONT BE LONG
Before they find you here and take you in for questioning
And I know it
WONT BE LONG
Before they lock me up and throw away the key

But if they find the bullet
You'll be responsible for this
Lovers lost everything are dying to meet you down here
As everybody wants to know your name
When you fall from the world of the winning
There is no in between
You're either one or the other
One or the other

Hang the noose maker
And kick away the stool beneath his feet
And make your way to the party
Like nothing happened at all

THIS IS GUN CITY
And I know it
WONT BE LONG
Even if I manage to make it out alive
And I know it
WONT BE LONG
Even if I manage to make it out
This city wont take my life
This city wont take my life tonight
The blood of the dead
All through these streets and in your head
The blood of the dead
All the blood of the dead

Speak if there's something you remember
I can't have you holding out on me
Fuck

Hang the noose maker
And kick away the stool beneath his feet
And make your way to the party
Like nothing happened at all
