I wore a shirt one day with a machine gun silhouette
Sportin’ a rainbow clip
Had this gun guy staring at me
Wondering where I got it and he just about flipped over it
I don’t know his name yeah but just the same
He buys a literal mountain of death
And I lost 5 or 6 bidding wars against him
Yeah, Until I had no money left
I said, Until I had no money left
Yeah, Until I had no money left, Oh

I don’t want you getting hurt or being too disappointed
If the feathers are broken and dead
The birds look good in person but not in the photo
And super vice versa I bet
I’ve seen the auctioneer get pretty frustrated
If something good gets underbid
When I went down there I got pretty damn suspicious
But it seems like a pretty good kit
Yeah it seems like a pretty good kit
Well it seems like a pretty good kit

This joints been around for a while
And it feels like the same old crowd each time
But there’s always that chance of a short bidding trucker
Trying to help an old man make a dime
There is one tough guy straight out of Texas
Doesn’t eat not want for himself
He’s got a kingdom of gun shops he likes to decorate ‘em
With the trophies of somebody else
Yeah the trophies of somebody else
Well the trophies of somebody else

    General CommentWith the 7'' vinyl I received a postcard with a really weird e-mail conversation between Jack and Rob Jones, whose last message is Jack saying "hey, there are some really nice lines in there, I used them for a song". And it's this song. A conversation about auctions and these things that are in the song.
