The Lyrics

I know this isn't all that funny... but it's thought provoking... so use the funny vote for how well you thought I displayed my subject matter :)
[Verse 1]
Story of my job
I line up the shot
And then I just blast away
Sorrow in my soul
'Cause it seems so wrong
But I have to make my pay

It's more than a gun
And this is less than hate
The reason that my pocket's full
The clouds are rolling in
Damn, he's shadowed again
So now the trigger can't be pulled

And I know that he knows someone's watching
And it kills me inside
To know that I am about to take away life
Inside I am cryin'

I don't wanna do this anymore
I don't even know the reason why
Everytime I look through the scope
I see him falling right onto his side
I don't wanna hurt them anymore
I don't wanna take away their lives
I am a sniper... a murderer?

[Verse 2]
He walks without a care
There's sweat all in my hair
'Cause damn it's hot up on this roof
I load up the chamber
I make a small murmur
His life is about to go poof
He won't feel any pain
Because I am a pro
And then my sight begins to fail
Because I do know
Where he's about to go
And I know it won't bode well

'Cause I know that he knows someone's watching
And it kills me inside
To know that I am about to take away life
Inside I am cryin'


Rifle... bullet
I might as well take this gun
And put it to his head
Get it over with
I don't wanna do this... anymore

Oooohhh... anymore

Hm...I hate Rihanna's voice (so nasal!), so anything that makes fun of her music is good in my book.

If I Told You- I'm afraid I'd have to do something about that... - July 29, 2006 - Report this comment
I'm sorry, this may not have been meant to be funny, but it is pretty darned funny. Maybe just because of the fact that I can't really imagine someone being a real sniper so it sorta falls into the category of the unknown. Anyway, very nice!

This is a little bit funny if you don't taken seriously, but read by the right person this is an excellent representation of the experience. Nice pacing and subject matter that actually, well, matters. 555
