about

Violence is old, guns are new. Compassion is old, but understanding just how many ways we are interconnected is new.

lyrics

I never believed in ghosts
until I became one
until I became one
I've been leaking through a bullet hole
and till now I'd forgotten
till now I'd forgotten

Before the both of us were ever dead
I caught you stealing a soup bone
I took a timber to the left of your head
let you die on the hearth stone

and when we both had found a different face
you said I'd murdered your grandson
you stuck my liver with a scissor blade
pushed me into a canyon

then I was sniping from a hidey-hole
I saw you cross the piazza
and through the smoke I saw your radio
I pulled the trigger and gotcha
I got ya
I got ya

and thus you kill me
and I come back
and I kill you
and you come back
and you kill me
and I come back
and I kill you
and you come back

why can't we
just put a bullet in this
put a bullet in this machine?
why can't we
put a bullet in this
put a bullet in this machine?

'cause shot's fired
sometimes
back fire

just like
just like

this time
this time
this time
oh how I wish it was you that got me
this time
oh how I wish it was you that got me
this time
how I wish it was you that shot me through the heart but no

It was my silver bullet ricochet
It was my silver bullet ricochet
It was my good idea
my good idea
It was my silver bullet ricochet
it was my silver bullet ricochet
it was my good idea
my good idea

I never believed in ghosts
until I became one
until I became one
