Trigger Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Walking south along the river
Never had he found that twist of pleasure
Remembering times when they were younger
Setting the town on fire
Verse 2
And watching as his fellow friends
Fell apart in the wake
Claiming it was all just a mistake
When his finger pulled the trigger
Verse 3
And he shot everyone
It was all just a mistake
When he shot everyone
Verse 4
Nothing will stand in the way
When hunger hasn't eaten for days
Scrounges around where ends meet
And disappears into the fray
Verse 5
He hopes for awhile he'll reconcile
The pain that never dies
The ghosts of his family constantly
Gnawing at his insides
Verse 6
He pulls out a worn photo
And an old handmade gun
Wishes it was he who was frying
When he set the whole town on fire
Verse 7
He walks off crying
He shot everyone
