[Chorus:]
With a gun in his hand,
He's a man in the wrong,
Pushes on and now it's time to cut and run.
Still, as he sits and he watches the sand slip through his hands.
Something strong,
One more twist of the knife and it's time to cut and run.
He smiles, as he draws on his last cigarette,
He commands something new,
Something spiteful and true.
Cries on his tape so they might understand.
(Chorus - Repeat 4 times and fade)
