Trigger Finger

September 2, 2009

So, you feel your body shaking

Your mind is overtaking

Everything

Your eyes lead your hand to breaking

*

All the planning

All the premeditation

Now you're here at the doors

You see the last light before the storm

*

Who could blame you?

They should've seen it coming

Should've started running

When the lead first caught the air

Should've paid attention

Should've lent a hand when

Your whole world spiraled out of touch

They try and stop the gunman

But they forget about the triggers

*

Bitten with pure regret

The massacre bell tolls with warning

The pangs count down to the final glory

You have the world cupped in your hands

You take your ultimate stand

*

Who could blame you?

They should've seen it coming

Should've started running

When the lead first caught the air

Should've paid attention

Should've lent a hand when

Your whole world spiraled out of touch

They try and stop the gunman

But they forget about the triggers
