Concrete Blonde
God is a Bullet

There's a green plaid jacket
On the back of the chair
It's like a moment
Frozen forever there

Mom and dad had a lot
Of big plans
For their little man
"...So proud."
Mama's gone crazy
'Cause her baby's shot down
By some teenage
Car chase
War out of bounds
It was the wrong place
Wrong time
Wrong end of a gun

Shoot straight
From the hip
Gone forever
In a trigger slip
You know,
It could have been
It could have been
Your brother
Shoot straight
Shoot to kill
Blame each other,
Blame yourselves
God is a bullet
Have mercy on us everyone

They're gonna call me sir
They'll all stop picking on me
Well I'm a high school grad
I'm over 5 foot 3
I'll get a badge
And a gun and
I'll join the P.D.
They'll see
He didn't have to use
The gun they put in his hand
But when the guy came at him,
Well he panicked and ran
And it's thirty long years
Before they give him
Another chance
And it's sad sad sad

John Lennon,
Doctor King,
Harvey Milk
All for goddamn nothing
God is a bullet
Have mercy on us everyone

This song, from when I
was staying at Zona's in '89
after we got back from Galveston,
$1000 phone bills,
you took such good care of me...
