10th track of Thought Machine's "Maiden Voyage" album.



Young Guns.

When I was a boy I had a toy gun
My friends and I would play in the fields
We were young, and we would bend
Like the barley in the breeze

A few years later I got a real gun
My friends and I would play in the streets
We were young, and we would bend
Like a stop sign hit by a car

And when the flames of industry stung our foolish heads
We realized we've played too long
The match had been set
Now we are a nation
And we'll never quit
We'll make the loudest bang
The biggest hit
And we will crush them
To burning bits...

I only live to serve my country
A piece of land, but more to me
We'll instill fear in all our enemies
And pierce the heart of all who deny us

And when the clock strikes upon the hour
Of when the knife falls below the border
We'll sing the songs of our ascension
We'll reap the spoils of our invention

And when we beat them in this game
We'll challenge others to compete
And send them to their early graves
Ever marching on and on

Old Guns.
