lifeblood: songs: lyrics: who sold the gun


gun gun who sold the gun
gun gun who
you had to take em all with you
(gun gun who sold the gun)
i guess you might have meant to live
(gun gun who sold the gun)
but after all the mess you realized
(gun gun who sold the gun)
you're just another lonely kid
(gun gun who sold the gun)
with a fucked up little endgame
(gun gun who sold the gun)
from some video arcade
(gun gun who sold the gun)
and a semi automatic
(gun gun who sold the gun)
from the man down the street
(gun gun who sold the gun)

there's a candy store in heaven
selling out of every pleasure
and a higher hall of learning
filled with kids forever yearning
and a rock show for all ages
bands a playing rock of ages

well i guess we made you famous
(gun gun who sold the gun)
cause we're just as fucked up yeah
(gun gun who sold the gun)
we got our name on every toe-tag
(gun gun who sold the gun)
of everything that is good
(gun gun who sold the gun)
yeah we got bombs by the busload
(gun gun who sold the gun)
in every corner of the world
(gun gun who sold the gun)
so many messes we can't clean up
(gun gun who sold the gun)
wars for every boy and girl
(gun gun who sold the gun)

there's a candy store in heaven
selling out of every pleasure
and a higher hall of learning
filled with kids forever yearning
and a rock show for all ages
bands a playing rock of ages

(ah ah ah ah)
(ah ah ah ah)
(ah ah ah ah)
bombs blowing over baghdad
on the day that you were born
(ah ah ah ah)
a market place full of bodies
to share our cemetery songs
(ah ah ah ah)
three hundred thousand children
marching off to wars
(ah ah ah ah)
funded by our government
for their dirty warlords

see you're just one in a long line
(gun gun who sold the gun)
you're not so lonely after all
(gun gun who sold the gun)
and i guess we made you famous
(gun gun who sold the gun)
cause we're just as fucked up yeah
(gun gun who sold the gun)
we're just as fucked up yeah
(gun gun who sold the gun)
cause we're just as fucked up
