      name your price

    You own this



keep your gun pointed up
you know who you are and you know what you got

i can't stand, no i can't tolerate
the dreams you had of running away

of running away
of running

keep your tongue
in my mouth
just to keep these words from coming out

hold your gun
to my mouth
and pray these words stop coming out

stop coming out
stop coming
start running

broken glass in my bed
you best not ask cos you know what's next
yeah you've seen it ahead

you've seen it
do you mean it

hold your gun
to my mouth
and pray these words stop coming out

i was locked
inside that house
just to keep my thoughts from racing around

i was bent
out of shape, across the whole continent
and through all these doubts

i'm crying out loud

i'm crying

i'm dying.
