Send away for a priceless gift
One not subtle, one not on the list
Send away for a perfect world
One not simply, so absurd
In these times of doing what you're told
Keep these feelings, no one knows
What ever happened to the young man's heart
Swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45 (45),
Swimming through the ashes of another life ('nother life)
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel of a 45

Send a message to the unborn child
Keep your eyes open for a while
In a box high up on the shelf, left for you, no one else
There's a piece of a puzzle known as life
Wrapped in guilt, sealed up tight

What ever happened to the young man's heart
Swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45 (45),
Swimming through the ashes of another life ('nother life)
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel of a 45

Everyone's pointing their fingers
Always condemning me
Nobody knows what I believe
I believe

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45 (45),
Swimming through the ashes of another life (another life)
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel of a 45

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45 (45),
Swimming through the ashes of another life (another life)
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel of a 45
45
45
Staring down the barrel

Bonus version acoustic version

Send away for a priceless gift
One not subtle, one not on the list
Send away for a perfect world
One not simply, so absurd
In these times of doing what you're told
Keep these feelings, no one knows
What ever happened to the young man's heart
Swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45,
Swimming through the ashes of another life
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel of a 45

Send a message to the unborn child
Keep your eyes open for a while
In a box high up on the shelf, left for you, no one else
There's a piece of a puzzle known as life
It's Wrapped in guilt, sealed up tight

So what ever happened to the young man's heart
It swallowed by pain, as he slowly fell apart

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45,
I'm Swimming through the ashes of another life
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
I'm Staring down the barrel of a 45

Cause Everyone's pointing their fingers
They're Always condemning me
Well nobody knows what I believe
What I believe

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45,
I'm Swimming through the ashes of another life
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel

And I'm staring down the barrel of a 45,
And I'm Swimming through the ashes of another life
No real reason to accept the way things have changed
Staring down the barrel
of a 45
of a 45
Staring down the barrel of a 45
