That's When I Reach For My Revolver (Mission of Burma)

Once I had my heroes Once I had my dreams But all of that is changed now They've turned things inside out The truth is not that comfortable, no And mother taught us patience The virtues of restraint And father taught us boundaries Beyond which we must go To find the secrets promised us, yeah That's when I reach for my revolver That's when it all gets blown away That's when I reach for my revolver The spirit fights to find its way A friend of mine once told me His one and only aim To build a giant castle And live inside his name Cry and whispers sing in muted pain That's when I reach for my revolver That's when it all gets blown away That's when I reach for my revolver The spirit fights to find its way Tonight the sky is empty But that is nothing new Its dead eyes look upon us And they tell me we're nothing but slaves That's when I reach for my revolver (But slaves) That's when I reach for my revolver That's when I reach for my revolver That's when I reach for my revolver That's when I reach for my revolver That's when I reach for my revolver
