lyrics

THE BONE STOPPED THE BULLET

Better use your mind
(I told you that) The purpose is to use your mind
It’s better to be strong
But you miss the point if you just cannot get along

Stand strong don’t quit
It’s gonna have to sink in konk konk
Stand strong don’t quit
And don’t fall in love

Shoot first ask the questions later
No one did you a favor

Only need convenient competition
Greet the meek the flowers and demise
Rock to sleep their first born crying babies (and tie ‘em up)
Do their tear ducts ever dry? (De-flower and divide)

When I shoot first, ask the questions later
Salt tears are my favorite flavor
Or “milk tears, serve em hot, yeah!”
Deep down I’m an incubator
I live for button-flies, sweet deals and pillow fights, there’s nothing better!

Shoot first, ask the questions later
It knows where to go
It’s got a mind of its own
Don’t keep the bullet from the habitator
Shoot first, ask the questions later
He knows where to go

Do what I told you boy and don’t waste a second or we’ll get someone else
If your stomach turns and knots and groans, don’t let it appall you, it’s just proof that you’ve won.

Shoot first; ask the questions later (gotta gun)
I’ll know where to go (gotta gun) ‘cause I’ve been their befo’ (gotta gun)
Don’t keep the bullet from its habitator
Shoot first; ask the questions later (gotta gun)
I know where to go

Pay no mind to the conscience that comes behind an exceeding quarter or suit on back order

Pay no mind to the cross that you might find on the chest of a stranger or yard of a neighbor
You might find to turn a cheek you’ll save more time
But I will remember, forever linger
String on a finger will always come untied

They’ll Deflower, overpower and divide
Nowhere’s home to nowhere
But the bullet’s always begging for the ride

Better use my mind
The purpose is to use my mind
It’s better to be strong
I miss the point if I cannot get along
Stand strong don’t quit
There’s a lesson I’ll soon forget
Stand strong don’t quit
And don’t fall in love.
