"Trigger Happy Hands" as written by Brian Molko and Martin Buttrich....
The world is run by clowns with trigger happy hands,
But the world is filled with people that we don’t understand
And so we’re living in a culture made of death and fear,
Doesn’t seem the human race will make it through the year.

The world is run by lying drunks, and balding know it alls,
But my mother told me pride would always come before a fall.
Now remember in the day when we were young and green,
We were filled with hope, we were squeaky clean.

"The world’s an unforgiving place", we've all heard this before
But we want hospitals and equal rights instead of bloody wars
We want the right to blow our minds, as crazy as it seems
The only place you’re truly free is cosy in your dreams
I said, the only place you’re truly free is cosy in your dreams

Put your hands in the air, wave'm like you give a fuck
Put your hands in the air, wave'm like you give a fuck
Put your hands in the air, wave'm like you give a fuck
Put your hands in the air, wave'm like you give a fuck

The world is run by clowns with trigger happy hands
But the world is filled with people, that we don’t understand
And so we’re living in a culture made of death and fear
It doesn’t seem the human race will make it through the year

Put your hands in the air, wave'm like you give a fuck (x8)

Put your hands in the air (come on), wave'm like you give a fuck (come on) (x8)

    General Commentthe meaning of this song is pretty obvious, but what's interesting about it is the way they are (were) performing this song on the tour.

    if you were lucky and could see them play :-) you would know what I mean,..... and if not, you can as well find different versions on the net (from their 2010 tour).
    and btw, there are also two different versions on the battle for the sun; redux edition ........... so as the meaning is really clear I would say that the point here is on the performance
