The proverbial gun is loaded,
Just cock it and aim.
You place your soft fingers against my temple
And all you need to do is pull the trigger.

But I grasp it in my calloused hand,
And the safety lock clicks on.
The spring uncoils like a dead snake,
And the bullet shrinks back like a beaten dog.

You don't know what I've been through,
What I've seen
And what's been said to me.

Put your toy away,
you can't kill me.
