ANTIQUE GUN
LET'S PUT IT UNDER GLASS
IT'S LOADED AND IT'S LIKELY NOW
TO GO OFF IN YOUR HAND
ANTIQUE GUN
A RELIC FROM THE PAST 
WHEN EVERYONE WAS SMALLER
AND THE WARS COULD STILL BE WON

CURLED AROUND THE WORLD
ITCHY LITTLE TRIGGER FINGER
EVERY BOY GRAB A GIRL

ANTIQUE GUN
LET'S PUT IT IN THE BRIG
WITH SURLY KNAVES AND SLAVERY
AND MEN IN POWDERED WIGS
AND WHEN WE'RE DONE
THEN LET THE FREEDOM RING
LIKE A BELL ACROSS THE CEMETERY'S
SOLDIERS IN THE SUN

CURLED AROUND THE WORLD
ITCHY LITTLE TRIGGER FINGER
EVERY BOY GRAB A GIRL

ONE BY ONE
THE BALLS AND BAYONETS
THE BLOODIED FLAG OF IGNORANCE
OF MODERN MINUTEMEN 
AND IT'S ONLY JUST BEGUN
BUT TELL ME WHERE DOES IT END
HE'S SHOOTING OFF HIS MOUTH AGAIN

CURLED AROUND THE WORLD
ITCHY LITTLE TRIGGER FINGER
EVERY BOY GRAB A GIRL
