"Guns.Guns...Guns" as written by and John Baldwin Gourley....
Where have all the people gone
Whose lives are no longer of use to them?
But this system by its habit forming myths
But this single file is so contagious
Black eyes breed gossip like
These perverts and perversions alike
Just like this perverts and perversions

Hibernate while you're still young
You are getting older
So much older
So much older than you think still
Not far but years away
Your hands'll snake out in a serpent smile

Crank the tap.
Itch.
Brimming with suspicions
The burrows are brimming with suspicions

Where have all the people gone
Whose guns are gold cold son of a bitch
“I'll travel anywhere I like"
He says "I'll travel anywhere I please.”
Your guns, big guns, suck life.
These perverts and perversions alike
Just like this perverts and perversions

Hibernate while you're still young
You are getting older
So much older
So much older than you think still
Not far but years away
Your hands'll snake out in a serpent smile

Crank the tap.
Itch.
Brimming with suspicions
The burrows are brimming with suspicions

Where have all the trumpets gone,
that played us "la-da da-da-daaa"?

The priest’s on the boat
And hell is on its way

    General Commentthis seems to be about the pressures to conform as you grow older, whether it be in the music industry or in other aspects in life. and the "itch" we have to "travel" anywhere we'd like.

    the reference to a priest suggests that society preaches how we all should live our lives.
