Hey! Watched the Godfather yesterday, and with a aqquintence that passed away in some crimedrama, i felt inspired to write this.


So when it all comes down to one
when its my turn to face
the bottom of the gun i've ran from so far

I've sacrificed my life so be quick
do it, its kinda fun
When you're looking down the bottom of a gun

We painted walls
we payed the law
we said that money could buy us life
but take a look at what it brought us

When the walls were painted red
when his lady came in
Oh she cried, oh she cried, oh she cried

I walked to her with open arms and said
"Dont be scared now, relax"
last thing she felt was a favoured touch

We sold the world
and bought for two
But to the bottom we will sink again
Kind of a strange town we live in

Back to the streets where hungry mouths cry
Where poppies crawled by
with pointy teeth sucking out life from my friends

I was told "happiness lies in a harmless plant"
to stay back and watch
when the big boys took matters in their own hands

So when it all comes down to one
when its my turn to face
the bottom of the gun, all i can say is

We had some fun, we had some fun, we had some fun.


Any feedback would be appreciated

Sweet I'd make this a kind of a dark song in E, play around with some riffs and stuff And by the end where it's "we had some fun", you can do like:

E G5 A5
We had some fun, we had some fun, we had some fun

Hi Petolvan. Interesting lyrics! I have written a few changes as an alternative for you to consider, see if you like it.

So when it all comes down to one
when it’s my turn to face
the bottom of the gun I’ve RUN SO FAR FROM

I've sacrificed my life so be quick
do it, its kinda fun
When you're looking down the BARREL of a gun

We painted walls
we paid the law
we said that money could buy us life
BUT THIS JOURNEY’S END IS NO PARADISE

When the walls were painted red
when his lady came in
Oh she cried, oh she cried, TEARS SHE BLED

I walked to her with open arms and said
"Don’t be scared now, relax"
last thing she felt was a favoured CARESS

We sold the world
and bought for two
But to the bottom we will sink again
Kind of a strange town we live in

Back to the streets where hungry mouths cry
Where poppies crawled by
with pointy teeth sucking out life from my ALLIES

I was told "happiness lies in a harmless plant"
to stay back and watch
WHILE THE BIG BOYS TOOK OVER AND RUBBER STAMPED

So when it all comes down to THIS PLACE
when its my turn to face
the bottom of the gun, all I can say is

WE HAD FUN, WE HAD FUN, WE HAD FUN

Just a rhyming alternative.

But im really glad you enjoyed the lyrics Ill post some more soon! It seems like you fully understood the meaning of the lyrics, as i meant them.
