  1. Weapon Down

From the album Tug of War

WEAPON DOWN
(Lesley Pike)

i saw you look a man in the eye
in a trigger happy moment try to take his life
that’s somebody’s lover
and someone else’s child

so your mother didn’t love you, now you’re justified
and your father ran away and never looked behind
no one ever noticed, no one realized

that you tried and you tried...

what will it take to turn it all around
what will it take
to put your weapon down

so tell me how you figure where to draw the line
how many shots until you set this right
won’t you tell me the story, the story of your life

and if there’s one more dead here in toronto will put an end to the pain you know
will it end the cycle will it settle the score

and you tried and you tried...

what will it take to turn it all around
what will it take
to put your weapon down
if it’s an eye for an eye then we’re blind
if it’s pain for pain
we’ll never get out alive

I saw you look a man in the eye
in a trigger happy moment try to take his life that’s somebody’s lover
and someone else’s child
