Dirty Projectors – Gun Has No Trigger lyrics

If you had looked, you might have just seen them
Stretched in the background
You'd see the oceans swell
And the mountains shook

You'd see a million colors
If you really looked
Now quick the night draws near
Her curtain spreads quicker
The safety's off

But the gun has no trigger.
If you had looked, you'd be no one's coward
Distance, justice, power
You'd glimpse the password

You wouldn't need the book
You'd own both slave and master
If you just had looked
But now the banks all closed

And nothing gets bigger
The crowd will yell
But the gun has no trigger.
If you had looked, you might reconsider

Or just maybe you already have
They watch you sleeping
You watch their garbage cook
You'd weep a bowl of tears
If you had looked

But now the gate comes down
The pangs are growing dimmer
You hold a gun to your head
But the gun has no trigger
