Five, four, three, two, one
Five, four, three, two, one

He holds the gun against my head
I close my eyes and bang I am dead
I know he knows that he's killing me for mercy

And here I go
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And here I go
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

He holds my body in his arms
He didn't mean to do no harm
And he holds me tight

He did it all to spare me from
The awful things in life that comes
And he cries and cries
I know he knows that he's killing me for mercy

And here I go
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
And here I go
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh

He holds my body in his arms
He didn't mean to do no harm
And he cries and cries

He did it all to spare me from
The awful things in life that comes
And he cries and cries

Five, four, three, two, one
Five, four, three, two, one

Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah-ah

Five, four, three, two, one
Five, four, three, two, one
Five, four, three, two, one
The gun is gone
And so am I
And here I go

    Song MeaningI think there is no methaphore hidden in this song, and that's the beautiful thing about it.

    When I listen to it I just imagine a man shooting his... daughter maybe? Because he feels the world is too ugly and he doesn't want her to suffer, but then he regrets doing it and cries because she's gone.

    I think you could sum up the story with the lines "he did it all to spare me from the awful things in life that comes and he cries and cries"
