[Vocals: Lou Diamond Phillips and Julia Waters]

There's no country, there's no freedom
There's no you, there's no me
There's no justice, there's no justice, there's no justice

Hey mister can you help me
I'm a loner on the run
I'm just looking for tomorrow
And I ain't gonna hurt no one

I jumped headfirst into a bottle
I was looking for a friend
Came up just short of nothing
I didn't find the truth, I only found an end

So tell me who's gonna save me
Or my father or my son
When the only justice a man can see
Is the barrel of a loaded gun, oh yeah

I been broke and I've been hungry
I think they're both my middle name, ooh
But I don't never ever never seem to get enough
Still guess I guess complain

'Cause what you get in life you take it
You've gotta hold on, make it last, ooh
They say good things come to those who wait
But it's life that goes so fast

And when there's just one rule you live by
Each day you kiss the rising sun
When you live and die by the life we breathe
In the barrel of a loaded...

Gun talk to me in my sleep at night
And a gun somewhere is burning with my name

[Guitar solo]

Winners are losers
And losers will have to face all those yesterdays
And all of the dreams they blew away

So Mister can you help me or are you my gun
Have the ghosts of justice brought you here to me to taste, ooh
The barrel of a loaded gun

There's justice in the barrel of a loaded gun
Justice in the barrel of a loaded gun
Justice in the barrel of a loaded gun
Justice in the barrel of a loaded gun
