All the pretty boys and girls are out breaking my heart
they all look so cool I can hardly tell them apart
they’re all looking for a little bit of love power and control
but that’s all right
because tonight our heads are going to rock and roll

let’s stay up all night and figure
whose guns are bigger
you can put yours right between my eyes honey
if you promise to pull the trigger

we’re all so damn enlightened
we’re so self aware
we’re all looking at each other
but when we notice
we pretend that we don’t care
and no matter how much we had
we always wanted more
and that’s all right because tonight our heads are going to hit the floor


let’s stay up all night and figure
whose guns are bigger
you can put yours right between my eyes honey
if you promise to pull the trigger

it was a glitter glamourama party of lies
but all that human drama, well it was burning my eyes
and everyone so seriously
danced together
and the reflections
from their diamond encrusted gold plated guns
enhanced the greens and the blues in their peacock feathers

and they looked so beautiful
so red faced and forgetful
and no matter how hard they tried to take the moment in they couldn’t

we’ve got the bottles for the buyers
and the suckers for the liars
all this heat is causing fires
we’re a bunch of real live wires
we’re real live wires

let’s stay up all night and figure
whose guns are bigger
you can put yours right between my eyes honey
if you promise to pull the trigger

    General CommentGreat song. I understand that it's about pretentious people all trying to one-up all the others but I'm not entirely sure about the gun reference.
