Rupert Hine – The Sniper lyrics

The crash - the gas
The heart attack
The rare disease you cannot fight
The poisoned bite
The faulty light
The wet hand on the stereo
The fire at night
The jump - the ice - the slip
The fall
That ends it all
The sniper knows his time has come
The life he takes means nothing more
Than bullets to the gun
The plane - the siege
The desperate deed
The news is read "one hostage dead"
The falling load
The needle showed
The cyclone and the overdose
The cyanide
The swamp - the snake - the slip
The fall
That ends it all
The sniper knows his time has come
The life he takes means nothing more
Than bullets to the gun
There's no temptation in his gaze
His blood runs hot and cold some days
His finger feels you in his range
A second on you freeze;
No memory for a fatal change
The sniper knows a man who's lived too long
The shock - the smog
The rabid dog
The forceps left inside your head
The saboteur
The ancient law
The bomb no one would dare explode
The fight for life
The smack - the skid - the slip
The fall
That ends it all
The sniper knows his time has come
The life he takes means nothing more
Than bullets to the gun
Fight for life
The sniper knows a man who's lived too long
