Under the Gun

(oehler/goedken)

Don’t let it be said
Lightning never strikes twice
Storm clouds return now
Lights flash as they entice
I turn you in
Running from the cold
You look for answers
I know I’ll never hold

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you deserve?
Is this what we wanted?
Is this what we deserve?

Put on the rack
And under the gun
Waiting here in stillness
Put on the rack
And under the gun
Cast off the rising sun

In the spotlight
And under the gun
I wander endlessly
In the spotlight
And under the gun
Wait for the dawn to come

I refuse to believe that
Thunder always comes late
Hard winds speed on now
Circling around like fate

Those I deceive
Fleeing in this cold
They ask the questions
No answers will I hold

Is this what we wanted?
Is this what we deserve?
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what we deserve?

Never one to believe
In destiny’s advice
Storm clouds descend now
They flash and pay the price

I switch you on
Running from the cold
They look for answers
I know I’ll never hold

Stretched on the rack
And under the gun
Betray the future
Stretched on the rack
And under the gun
Wait for the dawn to come

In the spotlight
And under the gun
Watching fireflies
In the spotlight
And under the gun
Spark in the dying sun
