He's standing alone with his gun in his hand
Wondering why he's the man with the gun in his hand
Brother of mine please don't take this choice
Drop the gun and follow my voice

ohh
ohh

Is it just enough for you to breathe, I'm begging
Is it not enough to just have me whoa

He's standing alone with the gun in his hand
Why am I the man, why am I the man
Brother of mine take this away I'm sick of this life of pain

ohh
ohh

Is it just enough for you to breathe, I'm begging
Is it not enough to just have me whoa
Is it just enough for you to be, I'm trying
To be the first thing that you need please dont pull the

(clearing throat)

He;s dead on the floor with his gun in his hand
Why was he the man, why was he the man

Is it just enought for you to breathe, I'm begging
It's not enough to be just me whoa
Is it just enough for you to breathe, I'm begging
Is it not enough to just have me whoa
Is it just enough for you to be, I'm trying
And where I go you will follow

    General CommentThis is probably my favorite song by Mister Owl, right now. It always changes. But this song is so.. amazing. :]
    It's really sad, though.

    General Commentthis is the first song i heard by this band. VERY powerful lyrics. I like how he hits dischords after he clears his throat to show that something bad happened, very strong message here.
