An easy job but it went wrong, I could not understand.
But how could they stop me with this magnum in my hand?
Just a kid now he always will be.
Gunned down gunned down.
Fell like a stone in a war of his own.
It can blow a hole in a steel door it can blow a hole in you.
It can blow the guts out of any cop, but then what would I do?
The blood is spilt it burns my eyes a pain I cannot bear.
I'm lying in the gutter crying in despair.
So I've failed in my quest of crime my one and only vice.
Gunned down by a sniper, for trying to improve my life.
