I'm just a gun.
Innocent on my own
But when I'm in the wrong hands.
Nothing but damage is done.
I hurt and I harm
I'm just a firearm.

All by myself
There's no one around
to pull my trigger.
No one to set me off.

I'm so loaded.
I'm ready to go
(boom,boom, boom boom, boom.)
Very ready to damage.
Just put me next to your head.

Previously owned.
My history is etched in stone.
I can't just be thrown around.
Just hold me in your hands
and We'll shoot everyone down.

I'm just like a gun.
Innocent on my own.
But When I'm in the wrong hands,
Nothing but damage is done.
I hurt and I harm
I'm just a firearm.

Hold me softly, my love.
I'm so shiny and new.
Just be very careful
Or I might just shoot you.
(I might just shoot you.)
Hold me softly, my love.

I'm just like a gun
Innocent on my own
But when I'm in the wrong hands
Nothing but damage is done.
I hurt and I harm
I'm just a firearm.
