Aim! Fire!

Keep your distance
You're in your league
Caress me, in your eyes
I've got better things to do

This will hurt someone

White walls, windows
Charity....
Complain, defenders
Comfort me, and bring me something sharp

This will hurt someone. Someone else...
This will hurt someone.

[audio sample of Budd Dwyer's last words before suicide
"Don't, don't– This will hurt someone"]

Calm down, think carefully
Seen it all before
Mind your own fucking business
Seen it all before
What I would give for your eyes
Seen it all before
You'll never blink again
Seen it all before

Faces on top of more faces
This bullet in your chest, the world is yours

Each word, you suck it through a straw
It's so predictable, it's policy.

This will hurt someone.
Someone else...

Each word, you suck it through a straw.
It's so predictable, It's policy.

    My InterpretationThis is a very interesting song, but I don't think it's exclusively about R. Budd Dwyer, I think the fact that the title of the song is a memorable line from Scarface is more than just a coincidence.

    For one thing, FNM did a cover of the theme from Scarface during their reunion tour, so they're definitely at least aware of the link.
    I think this song is about paranoia. This is represented by Budd Dwyer', a man who went from being a respected politician to killing himself on live TV, and Tony Montana in Scarface going from a drug kingpin where the world was his, to his entire world falling down around him and ending up dead in a pool of blood in his own home, due to paranoia leading him to make the wrong decisions.

    The lyrics "oh, What I would give for your eyes/I've
    Seen it all before
    You'd never blink again
    Seen it all before" reflect the theme of paranoia brilliantly.

    General CommentYeah definately, i reacon some of their rarer songs are some of their best.
    like this one. i love the 'aim fire' at the begining and the elephants it reminds me of a military campaigne which kinda ties into the 'world is yours' idea.
    its pretty unrelated to the rest of the song though

    General CommentInteresting it's about Budd Dwyer. However, everytime I hear this song, I think of James Bond. It sounds like a theme to a 007 movie. I even picture the montage video during the credits while this song place. Plus, the title itself sounds like the title to one of the 007 themes.
