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

    General CommentThis may not be what was intended, but listening to this song always makes me think of the ending scene of 'Of Mice and Men', in which George has to sacrifice his friend Lennie by killing him quickly in order to avoid being tortured. ("I know he knows that he's killing me for mercy"). This song truly shows both of them so well that I will always think of that now.
