Up on my side, where it is felt
I pack a little pistol on my pistol belt
I think it might be fear
Of the world and the way it makes you feel afraid

Under the skin, against the skull
They put a little chip so that they know it all
I think I might be scared
Of the world and the way it makes you feel afraid
And how it gets in the way

And now I want brimstone in my garden
I want roses set on fire
And I, well I want what's best for me
And I, I think I know just what that means
Just what that means

Today I coo, today I caw
I have a pistol party and I kill 'em all
I think I might be scared
Of the man and the men with their hands inside
And the women, oh, the women all they do is cry
And I, well I lose my mind

And now I found brimstone in my garden
I found roses set on fire
And I found Jesus, what a liar
So I trade licks with Muddy Waters

And I, well I found what's best for me
And now I see no tragedy
And I, I found a burning rose
And now I won't be packing little pistols
No, no, no more

    My InterpretationLike others have said before, I believe it's about fear. How it can twist you into something you never thought you would be, but theres no going back once you have gone too deep... When you fear, you lose control, so it's only natural to want that control back, which can spiral quickly out of hand. Within a few years you could be a completely different person. From pure, being scared, to being the one scaring others.

    You think you are doing whats "best for you" but you are only digging yourself a bigger hole, the deeper it is, the harder it is to come back.

    Theres two types of people who have control: the ones that had it and have grown so used to it that they don't want to lose it, at almost any cost, and those that feared and fought for control they have.
