"Solitary Gun" as written by and Zachary David Schwartz....
Will I follow you down the line?
Will I follow you down the line?

Stepped off the the train and looked for Fruitvale signs
The January air it whips across my spine
Whoa, whoa

We've been suffering the six days since he died
I saw a picture of his mother as she cried
Go to where the people go
We'll dig some decent wine
And it burns hard and real
To feel his feel

They're putting clothes to flame, an imaginary sun
A little boot heel down for a solitary gun
Dana punches his own face, it begs for mocking
Shouldn't go lonely from a solitary gun
Oh, yeah

Shops saluted and the windows of open eyes
She said it's emotional and it's not nice
Will you be the bed for me when they set the world on fire
Just to see it burn
In a consolation urn
And my stomach turns to steel

They're putting close to flame, an imaginary sun
A little boot heel down for a solitary gun
This moment doesn't happen every night
Shouldn't go lonely from a solitary gun

This brother's sister's mother's business is all gone
Stepped on her neck when we used to just sing songs
Whoa, whoa

We're setting close to flame, an imaginary sun
A little boot heel down for a solitary gun
This moment doesn't happen every night
Shouldn't go lonely from a solitary gun

    General Commentthis song has to have something to do with Evan Farrel, who died in 2007. they said they sort of made this album to honor him but try to leave behind the past by doing something new and fresh

    we recorded the song 'solitary gun' because of the shooting of Oscar Grant. I was wondering what you all feel about the event and the trial.
    Read about it on wikipedia and be informed! haha.

    General CommentI feel like this song is about suicide. The talk of guns and mother crying, and well, death, makes me think of suicide.

    If not, maybe it has to do with the stress of living. And how your choices affect everyone around you.

    Well whatever it's about, I quite like it.

    General CommentThis song seems to me to be talking how death effects those left behind. I think it is talking about how each person must face death alone, and everyone who loses someone to death face it together. We lean on each other and seek comfort in others when we have lost someone who is dear to us.
