Faith and praise keep locked away
Sentimental thoughts can stay
I suppose I've made mistakes
Carry on so I can lay

With your gun-shy sunshine
With my headstrong highlights

Brace yourself for old remains
Later on I will behave
Made a home for future stakes
Rest assured we'll be okay

With your gun-shy sunshine
With my headstrong highlights
With our hands drawn and eyes dried
Hands drawn and eyes dried
What you don't understand
(Hands drawn and eyes dried)
I'm a modular man

Pretend you care to remember
Pretend you care to remember
Remember when to resemble man

With your gun-shy sunshine
With my headstrong highlights
With our hands drawn and eyes dried
Hands drawn and eyes dried
What you don't understand
(Hands drawn and eyes dried)
I'm a modular man

    General CommentI am going to take a stab at this. If you are familiar with the phrase "No more mister nice guy" I believe that phrase describes this piece, in at least a simple manner. The artist clearly states, several times. "Hands drawn, eyes dried" And considering the title of the song, is Gun-Shy Sunshine, seems to me to suggest that the artist has simply had enough with letting people walk all over him, and is quite prepared to face their oppression, in any way possible. I understand that there is a likely-hood that this interpretation may not fit in with the entire piece. It is also stated, that the artist describes himself as "A modular man" which to me seems to be yet another indication of my theory. I think he is stating that he has become, in fact, modular. He has given in to the apathy of his fellow man, and has embraced a callous side to his character.

    My InterpretationThis is just my opinion, this song is about relationship with someone who is not at all like you. "Gun shy sunshine" can mean the person doesn't enjoy violence and/or is sweet and innocent. While you hold on to your "headstrong highlights" because that is who you are. You're different from that other person , however you two share something similar "with our hands drawn and eyes dried". I think this means both of you will still always share a special connection/bond with one another.

    General CommentNo idea whatsoever! Like many a songmeanings.net visitor I was just searching for the lyrics in general, but this time decided Why not leave a helium balloon tied down to a turd of confusion?
